Upon using this method (alongside the effect caused by the plastic surface deformation finishing that guarantees the hardening of surface layers) the presence of grooves caused by vibration burnishing allows for the creation of "oil reservoirs" on the surface, thus facilitating the work of the friction pair in the case of boundary lubrication or its absence, avoiding the scuffing and galling of surfaces.
However, when rolling and burnishing are used in the manufacturing processes to induce residual stress and to improve surface finish, the roller load is relatively high compared to the rolling loads experienced during the service of the rolled components and the number of rolling is also limited.
