In this paper the ball burnishing as a finishing process for sculptured surfaces is studied. This technique is a quick, easy and economical process for a significant improvement of high-end parts. Aiming at the burnishing of complex parts, different strategies are possible. In this case two strategies are presented: continuous burnishing (CB) using 5-axis interpolation and patch burnishing (PB) using 3+2 axis interpolation. Two parts have been previously machined in five-axis and then finished using ball burnishing techniques. The first one is an AISI 1045 hemisphere and the second one is a DIN 1.2379 part (64 HRC). Surface quality has been evaluated for both strategies obtaining a significant improvement of surface roughness and hardness.
