The paper introduces the results from experiments for surface quench hardening by hollow cathode arc discharge in vacuum. The used method is an alternative to traditional laser and plasma methods for surface hardening. The paper presents the influence of the working parameters and the following tempering on the microstructure, dimensions and hardness of the hardened surfaces.Keywords: Vacuum technology, surface heat treatment, hollow cathode arc, surface melting.
