Abstract

<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title><jats:p>The use of laser ablation phenomenon with the “thermal effect” to produce surface textures, mainly lubricant micro-containers in the form of spherical micro-bowls in the surface layer of 100CrMnSi6-4 alloy of bearing steel. This is interesting research topic. The application the local (zonal) laser hardening of the steel surface layer on the surface of the bearing raceway or casts gives technological opportunities to deploy those technologies in the production process. The article presents the selected results of the own laboratory studies of hardness, microstructure and surface stereometry bearing steel 100CrMnSi6-4 in different states after volume hardening and low tempering, as well as those obtained as a result of laser surface texturing and laser pulsed hardening. The study results can be used to modify the surface layer of 100CrMnSi6-4 bearing steel and in the nearest future use ablative laser texturing of the rolling bearings treadmill surface in the production of lubricanting micro-containers, for improving the wear resistance tribological pair of roller – raceway in the friction conditions.</jats:p>
