Paper Abstract

The examinations of the structure, hardness and abrasion resistance of surface layer of Fe-C alloys having the contents of carbon up to 4% and high-speed steel: 6-5-2, 4- 4-2-5+C after laser hardening are presented in the paper. They are compared with the properties obtained after conventional hardening. Laser of impulse operation - YAG:Nd and of continuous operation - CO2 were used. Analysis of structure was carried out based on metallographic and fractographic examinations as well as on X-ray properties, parameters of laser and conventional heat treatment of steels were defined.
