This paper presents the results of the surface fatigue strength of cast iron EN-GJSF after grinding and burnishing with a force of P = 1000 N, 3000 N, 4000 N and 5000 N. In comparison to grinding, tests have revealed that burnishing increases the surface strength by about 140 – 170%. The research has demonstrated that the size of plastic deformation increases together with increasing strength. It was determined that the form of graphite and its distribution are essential to the development of fatigue cracks.
