Austempered Ductile Iron (ADI) is a ductile iron subjected to two steps heat treatment process-austenitization and austempering. The heat treatment gives to ADI high value of mechanical properties ie. tensile strength, hardness, etc. However, designers in most cases are unfamiliar with this material that can compete favorably with steel and aluminum castings, weldments and forgings. In this paper investigation of the influence of the austempering temperature on the hardness of the ADI samples
