ECM by Multi-Process Module: perfect machining of huge output quantities

Electro-chemical machining (ECM) is a fascinating production method, because the technology involves virtually no workpiece contact: A direct current, or pulse, is used to polarize the workpiece positively, to create an anode, and the tool negatively, for the cathode. An electrolyte solution flows between the two, and metal ions detach from the workpiece. The components are not exposed to any mechanical or thermal stress during the process.
