Manufacturing processes: Electro Chemical
Precise Electro Chemical Machining, abbreviated as PECM or pECM, is an advanced metal-working technique which can machine products that are difficult or impossible to design through conventional machining.
It is an extremely accurate technique, capable of machining any electrically conductive work piece due to the fact that the technology is based on electrolysis (i.e., chemical change, especially decomposition, produced in an electrolyte by an electric current). Among its wide material application capabilities are even improved and tough to machine metal alloys irrespective of their hardness, strength or thermal properties.
During the process the metal work piece is dissolved (Machining) locally through electricity (Electro) and chemistry (Chemical) until it reaches the required complex 3D end shape.
