Applications for ECG Machines

Electrochemical Grinding (ECG) provides superior results for applications that must be burr-free, stress-free, and low force to avoid part damage (for example, very thin wall tubing), and in applications that must be free of metallurgical damage – no heat affected zone, no recast layer, and no burning or work hardening, as well as in applications with tight tolerances.

Electrochemical Grinding is commonly used in the medical device industry and the aircraft industry, as well as in applications that use exotic materials, such as high-temperature alloys, stainless steels, and materials that are difficult to machine. This procedure is also used in applications that require secondary operations, such as deburring, applications with fragile materials, and applications that use heat sensitive materials.
