The paper presents the results of research on the selection of tool materials, lubricants and self-lubricating coatings in the process of rotary forming of nickel superalloy Inconel type sheets. The abrasiveness tests of sheets were carried out with roller made of ceramics FRIALIT® F99.7 and steel CALDIE®. The discs were covered with single layers of lubrications: WD-40, Loctite 8023, Loctite 8151AS, Bonderite Aquadag18%. In parallel the discs were coated with a self-lubricating coatings: silver, zinc and copper. The properties of friction pairs were determined based on weight loss. The obtained samples were subjected to detailed research focused on the analysis of the quality of the surface after deformation. The test results are shown in tables, diagrams and surface profiles.Keywords: Rotary forming, Inconel, abrasiveness, lubrication, roughness
