Surface texturing and its influence on tribological systems performances represent one of the main research topics nowadays. Textures functionality is initially ensured by correct optimization of its geometrical parameters, but the influence of textures quality is not to be neglected. Therefore, a proper selection of fabrication methods appropriate for each individual application is imperative. The process of selection is somehow exhaustive due to abundance of parameters and selection criterions. Hence, this paper proposes a general classification of texture manufacturing techniques, used nowadays within industrial manufacturing and research platforms, with pertinent description of each process including key advantages and drawbacks concerning their application within mechanical systems.
