This paper presents the results of tribometric investigations of ground surfaces machined with different combinations of grinding regime. Though they belong to the same class of surface roughness, they show significant differences in tribological properties. This is a consequence of differences in the state of material in the surface layers, which arise from the machining regime parameters variation. These results emphasize the essential importance of correct definition of tribological criteria for contact surface states in the design phase.
