The conditions for the antifriction coatings formation during finishing antifriction non-abrasive treatment (FANT) are analyzed. The requirements for this kind of coatings and the main criteria for assessing their quality are noted. A relationship has been established between the quality of the coating obtained with FANT and the technological factors that determine the conditions for contacting the tool with the treated surface. It is proved that the shape and size of microroughnesses of the treated surface determine the efficiency of the microcutting process and filling the microcavities with the rubbed material.

Technological factors influence on the coating quality was investigated during FANT by implementing a multifactor experiment, as a result of which a connection was established between the technological parameters of the process (total friction path, load on the tool), as well as the length of the supporting surface with indicators characterizing the coating quality.

Statistical models were obtained for mass transfer of antifriction material, area (continuity) of the coating and surface roughness at natural values of the factors, which made it possible to establish the studied factors influence on the optimization parameters.

The analysis of the experimental scattering graphs made it possible to clarify the nature of the factors changes and analyze their mutual influence on the optimization criteria. Taking into account the inversely proportional relationship of the optimization criteria, the achievement of their maximum values at the same time is impossible, therefore, the values are taken according to the final result of the FANT process.

The range of the studied factors values is established, the regularities of their change are substantiated from the point of view of the selected optimization criteria. Determination the rational values of the FANT process technological parameters will improve the antifriction coatings quality obtained by a friction-mechanical method
