One of the greatest problems of modern production techniques is the achievement of an appropriate quality at minimal costs and accompanied by the production efficiency increase. During finish treatment the final dimensions as well as functional properties are imparted to a given element by application of proper treatment type. Article presents results referring to the analysis of the influence of burnishing process on surface topography of marine pump shaft. The research was performed on a shaft made of X5CrNi18-10 (AISI 304 L) stainless steel. The preliminary turning process was carried out by means of a WNMG 080408 WF Sandvik Coromant cutting tool with replaceable inserts and burnishing process was done by Yamato SRMD burnisher. The goal of the paper was to define the influence of burnishing tool passes number on surface roughness parameter.Keywords: Burnishing process, surface roughness, surface topography, stainless steel, marine pump shaft
