Designed for the Production of Machining Pipe Carriers
Easier: Burr- and chip-free machining for high output quantities
Stability: Thermally neutral machining while simultaneously avoiding microscopic cracks and white layers
Faster: Machining several workpieces simultaneously with several active cathodes
Flexibility: The CI 400 is flexible enough to enable both soft and hard machining
What is ECM?
Electrochemical machining is a contact-free production process that chemically removes material from a component, and is particularly effective when working with hard materials. This process is perfect for everything from simple deburring all the way to manufacturing.
The ECM technology provides residue-free machining of metal parts without contacting the workpiece. This makes the technology ideal for machining thin-walled workpieces, such as rotor carriers. Since the tool never makes contact with the workpiece at any time during machining, there is absolutely no warping. ECM also creates surfaces that require no finishing after the process.
