EDM wire erosion - spark machining tube

EDM: Wire Erosion Cutting

Electrical discharge machining (EDM), also called spark machining, spark eroding, burning, die sinking or wire erosion, is primarily used for hard metals or electrically conductive metals that are difficult to machine in other ways. EDM can cut intricate contours and cavities.

ECC Electrochemical Cutting – Electrochemical Saw

Electrochemical cutting or electrochemical saw cutting is a form of electrochemical grinding (ECG) utilizing a cutting wheel in place of an abrasive grinding wheel. Most tubular parts over 3 inches in length are cut with an electrochemical saw. Cut parts are automatically deburred by the reverse plating (de-plating) process.

ECG: Electrochemical Grinding

Electrochemical grinding (ECG) uses electrical current and an abrasive wheel to cut without heat stress, burrs or mechanical distortions. Oxidation stops the cutting. Then an abrasive grinding wheel removes the metal oxide, restarting cutting. Cathode-anode current flow, conductivity and electrochemical reactivity determine the ECG machining rate.

ECM: Electrochemical Machining

Electrochemical Machining (ECM) or reverse electroplating utilizes an electrically conductive work piece as an anode with a conductive tool as a cathode in an electrical circuit. As the gap between tool and metal decreases, current flows and dissolves the workpiece material. Electrolytic fluid flushes material as the tool advances.
