The author covers electrochemical machining
, material removal in electrochemical micromachining, types of EMM, the design of and developments in microtools, and a wide variety of other related subjects.
The boundary of remaining material was the initial boundary of pulse electrochemical machining
in the time of [T.sub.2].
The exhibitors will also present new and further developments in the fields of thermal energy machining (TEM), electrochemical machining
(ECM), precision electrochemical machining
(PECM), abrasive flow machining, vibratory grinding, brush deburring and blasting with solid and liquid media.
Among advanced machining processes, electrochemical machining
with conventional honing that is hybrid Electro Chemical Honing (ECH) process is to be used increasingly in years to come, because of its many favorable features.
(ECM) involves the use of corrosive chemical solutions to etch the surface of a workpiece.
Electrochemical honing (ECH) is a hybrid finishing process combining capabilities of electrochemical machining
(ECM) to give faster material removal rate (MRR) and stress-free surfaces and capabilities of mechanical honing to correct geometric errors and give controlled functional surface, in a single operation.
(ECM) has tremendous potential because of its versatile applications and it is expected that it would be a promising, successful, and commercially viable machining process in the modern manufacturing industries.
Among the topics are experimental versus computational system analysis, the time-dependent simulation of electrochemical machining
under non- ideal conditions, and stress-corrosion in cold drawn pre-stressing steels.
In recent years Extrude Hone also has grown through acquisitions, by incorporated related processes like the Dynetics (Woburn, Mass., acquired in 2001) Dynaflow variation on abrasive-flow machining or its Chemtool electrochemical machining
and the Surftran (Madison Heights, Mich., acquired in 2000) Thermal Energy technique that in essence burns off burs and flash.
The actual rifling can be either cut by a broach or done by an electrochemical machining
operation where a carbon electrode with the rifling pattern is passed through the bore.
The initial 'soft' material for forming into a finished blade shape, involving advanced electrochemical machining
methods, requires a subsequent and complex heat treatment to increase inherent material strength.
