This study investigates the wear resistance of four thermomechanical treated monolithic AA6061 alloy, using a pin-on-disc test. In addition to the widely studied AA6061 alloy in T6 condition, the present investigation considered a low temperature thermomechanical treatment which included solution treatment, cold rolling of specimens at various deformation percentages (percentage reduction) and artificial ageing. Experiments were designed using Taguchi’s method and were conducted on a pin-on-disc test setup. Four factors and four level combination using L16 orthogonal arrays was applied. Signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio with smaller the better quality characteristics was considered for the obtained results by carrying out Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) to study the tribological behaviour of thermo mechanical treated AA6061. Results indicate that the factor percentage reduction had the highest significance while the factor sliding distance had the least significance on the wear rate. Optimum combination for reduced wear rate was found to be with level 4 of percentage reduction, level 4 of load, level 3 of sliding speed and level 2 of sliding distance.
