PECM

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.

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.
