Basalt is a material available in big quantities in nature. It has a low price and can be used in various domains. It can be relatively easily extracted from natural deposits and processed by means of melting. Melted and recrystallized basalt has demonstrated promising behavior with regards of its use in manufacturing, as reported in the literature. This work aims to present some aspects regarding the opportunity of using basalt in manufacturing the subassemblies of machine-tools. The research was made using grey cast iron and steel parts as reference for a comparative study. The researches presented in this work were focused on analyzing the behavior of basalt parts submitted to static stress. Testing methodology, specific measuring apparatus used, experimental test data records, data processing and resulting conclusions are presented in the paper.
