The technologies of continuous strengthening of technological surfaces have practically exhausted their capabilities, which calls for the creation of fundamentally new approaches. The application of the principles of discrete-oriented strengthening of tribosystems has wide prospects for improving existing methods of strengthening due to the selection of modes and control of the geometric structure of the surface layer. The essence of the discrete-oriented strengthening method is the application of combined electromechanical processing and electrocontact cementation of cylindrical surfaces. The purpose of the work is to determine the parameters of discrete processing of cylindrical steel parts that are optimal according to the surface hardness criterion. Using the Statistica program, a factorial experiment was implemented according to the Box-Behnken plan, and the results of dispersion and regression analysis of the influence of processing parameters on microhardness were obtained. It was established that the following optimal parameters of DOZ processing are necessary to achieve the maximum values of microhardness (5950 MPa): current strength-500A, force-350 N, contact time-0.3 s.
