The method to increase the durability of high-strength cast iron with spherical graphite YAG:Nd-laser radiation is proposed. The results of studies in laser processing of cylindrical samples of high-strength cast iron grade of the VCH 70-3 are presented by the YAG:Nd-laser, working in pulse-periodic mode. Effect of the treatment with 1 kW YAG:Nd-laser on microhardness of high-strength cast iron has been investigated. More effective laser strengthening is found to be occurred by YAG:Nd-laser processing as compared with continuous CO2-laser one. The results showed that when processing of cast iron in general, the zone of laser influence consists of the reflow zone and the zone of quenching from the solid state. The optimal values of parameters of the hardened layer in the radiation by the solid-state YAG:Nd laser are considered. It is shown that under fluence of laser radiation fluence more than 28 j/mm2 is occured the surface melting of cast iron.
