Annotation In the article discusses the results of the deposition of nanostructured coatings obtained by vacuum arc deposition of cathode (Ti-Zr-Nb), and analyzes their structure, morphology, elemental composition, and tribological properties (friction, wear and adhesion). The structural analysis showed the formation of an FCC phase and BCC phase in a small amount (at a chamber pressure Р = 4×10 – 3 Тоrr). The results of tribological tests showed that the friction coefficient varies from 0.61 to 0.491, and Vickers hardness from 37 to 44.57 GPa when changing (increasing) the pressure in the chamber. The analysis of the elements in the tracks of friction was studied.
