The effect of bismuth in the composition of the ingredients of sintered anodes used in electrospark alloying on transport of the anode material was investigated. The use of electrodes containing 1. 5-40% bismuth increases the transport of the anode material by 2. 9-42. 7 times. Parts (sliding bearings) with wearing of the friction zone to 1 mm can be restored by copper-bismuth electrodes, in which case the allowance obtaned permits subsequent machining, including plastic deformation by various smooth tools.
