Heat Exchangers and ECM Infographic
Electrochemical machining (ECM) is an excellent fit for manufacturing heat exchangers for just about any application, large or small.
- ECM inflicts no thermal or mechanical stresses on the part, allowing for thin walls to be created without deformities or irregularities, allowing for more consistent heat transfer.
- ECM easily creates parts with high aspect ratios and tight spacing, allowing for more efficient heat exchangers, give their larger surface areas.
- ECM can machine a wide range of metals that are prohibitively difficult when using other methods. This means that hardened and/or thermally resistant materials can be incorporated into heat exchanger designs.
- ECM produces parts in parallel with excellent repeatability, meaning it's perfectly suited to high-volume and/or high-value production.
