BENEFITS OF PECM

  • Pristine surfaces

  • No tool wear

  • Additive finishing

  • Thin walled features

  • Affordable microarrays

  • Hard-to-machine alloys

  • Micron repeatability


WORKING WITH VOXEL


When you contact us with a 3D model of your part, we review it for manufacturability and economics. This begins an ongoing conversation about how well our process fits your part, based on PECM’s strengths and weaknesses.


PECM (THE SIMPLIFIED VERSION)

Nitinol bone fixture plate
  1. Tool and workpiece are positioned at a gap of <50um with electrolyte solution between.

  2. The electrode moves toward the workpiece and a pulsing DC current is applied.

  3. Flowing electrolyte removes hydrogen gas and dissolved metal from the gap.

  4. The workpiece is machined into the negative shape of the electrode tool.

  5. The resultant part is burr-free with no thermal effects and low surface roughness.
