The present research is focused on continuously measuring the variability of the burnishing force during conducting ball-burnishing process for specimens with surfaces with 3D shape, by using CNC milling machine with dual rotary table installed. For measuring the burnishing force and its variability, the specifically developed ball-burnishing tool with miniature force sensor was used. To assess the degree of influence of the main regime parameters on the variability of the burnishing force, the four factors full factorial experiment design with two levels per factor and four replications per run has been carried out. The experimental results are processed statisti-cally and techniques such as Pareto and ANOVA were used after that, for sorting them by degree of significance. Some conclusions about the magnitude and the causes of the obtained variability also are given.
