The applications of polyamide type mechanical components are referring on journal bearings, cams, guides, chain drive transmissions – the guide/chain contact, taps – the screw/nut contact; gear transmissions. The paper presents the analysis of the friction phenomenon in polyamide – steel plate front face type contacts by performing tests on a tribometer test rig. The results are offering information about the variation of the sliding friction coefficient, the flatness error and the wear rat. The conclusions are presenting recommendations regarding the applications and the functioning conditions of the polyamide (PA66) type mechanical components.
