Pulsed Electro-Mechanical Maching:
Empowering your Production Future
Electrochemical machining technology is a touchless procedure that can create large volumes of precision parts quickly, cost-effectively and with high repeatability.
This allows you to position yourself as a premium supply-chain partner with confidence and an exceptinonal quality claim.
The perspectives for innovative, quality-focused industrial production operations are immense: cut costs while exponentially improving precision in series, supplying your customer with a proven supply-chain solution - both at first tier and component supplier level.
The Answer to
Building cutting edge machines and understanding your challenges in production is our business. So, if
you have materials that are exceptionally difficult to machine...
you are required to deliver complex geometries...
you are expected to reliably produce extreme surface quality...
Then we have the solution for you with the technology and expertise to answer those challenges. The bottom line for you:

Don't Deburr it - PECM it!
Schematic view of Pulsed Electrochemical Machining
Pulsed electrochemical machining (PECM) is a non-contact machining process based on the principles of electrolysis. The machining operation involves a tool (the cathode) in the inverse shape of the desired workpiece (the anode).
As the tool moves towards the workpiece surface, it machines the workpiece into the complementary shape of the tool. This occurs as a pulsed DC current is applied, allowing for high precision and superior surface quality. At the same time, an electrolyte is pumped between the cathode and anode at high speed, removing dissolved metal and heat.
The result is an operation capable of producing a burr-free 3D shape with no tool wear in alloys that are difficult or impossible to machine through traditional methods.

"The electrochemical process is one of the highlights of our operation. In two years of tough, everyday industrial conditions, we are proud of and can vouch for a track record of reliability and series quality I have seldom experienced in 25 years of experience."
GLOBAL CUSTOMER SERVICE
Leistritz Production Technology, Pleystein, Germany
The equipment we use for that is developed and built ourselves; you cannot buy it on the market. It’s a very special thing.
Together, we have around 420 years of experience and 280.000 hours of smooth PECM operating hours to our record. Quite a track record, when you think of it.
HEAD OF PROCESS ENGINEERING
Leistritz Turbine Technology, Nuremberg, Germany
"PECM is a fascinating technology that opens up so many technical options you would normally consider impossible. The precision in microdimensions, the microscopic smoothness of surfaces achieved are astonishing. I never cease to be fascinated by the possibilities."
