The article presents results involving the application of lasers for the production of sliding friction supports used in instrument building. Typical support designs are shown. Regression equations are presented for elements of typical sliding friction supports considering the primary factors influencing their design dimensions. The use of lasers can allow the production of an aperture or depression directly in a load bearing plate similar in shape and size to stone bearings in a single generating pulse, and also allows the formation of ends with various design characteristics on axes, while simultaneously hardening the material in the treatment zone.
