This article discusses experimental results obtained for elements made of a wear - and abrasion-resistant steel, Hardox400, finished using a non-conventional method. The analysis focused on the relationship between of the tumbling time and the radius of rounding. The effect of the angle of the cut was also taken into consideration. The surface of the finished items was examined with a Nikon MA200 microscope equipped with a NIS-elements viewer (version 4.20). The study also involved determining the influence of the tumbling time on the relative mass loss and the basic surface texture parameters. The surface texture of the finished elements was examined using a Taylor Hobson Talysurf CCI Lite optical 3D profiler.Keywords: tumble finishing, vibratory tumbling, fine machining, Hardox
