Electrochemical deburring (ECD) and Electrochemical grinding (ECG) is an adaptation of Electrochemical Machining (ECM) process. In thermal deburring, the process difficulties can be eliminated because the Electrochemical deburring is based on the principle of the anodic. Contactless deburring with ECM – electro-chemical machining: It is fair to describe the electro-chemical machining (ECM) process as economically highly viable.

ECM is an ideal deburring process for deburrinf where burrs are difficult to reach or machine using conventional methods, and it eliminates the challenge of secondary burr formation.

Electrochemical Deburring and Grinding

If the deburring process is carried out with the help of electrochemical energy then, electrochemiccal process of deburring is called as the electrochemical deburring. With regard to the deburring process this is of great importance, as the relatively small problem of a burr can very quickly escalate to a crisis.

Contactless deburring with ECM – electro-chemical machining. The electrolyte material flows through the hole to carry away the burr particles. What is Electrochemical Grinding and How it Works? Creates defined surface structuring to optimize flectrochemical tribology at the component surface — retaining oil at a bearing surface.

Instead of cutting metal using hardened tooling, material is removed more efficiently by an electrochemical process. Email Call Order Support: There are no mechanical loads or thermal loads on the workpiece. The process time is fast as compared to conventional methods and multiple parts per cycle can be machined resulting in a lower unit cost of production.

Our team of manufacturing professionals will work with you to determine the best possible tooling design for your project. The shape of the cathode determines the final shape of the workpiece or the impression imaging placed upon the workpiece.


It is fair to describe the precision deburring or burnishing of metal components using the electro-chemical machining ECM process as economically highly viable.

In electrochemical deburring, electrochemical machining is used. Then, the electrolyte is passed through this container. The demands made on the deburring process. The tool removes the burrs and as previously stated according to the shape of the burr a tool is used. Creates a defined edge rounding. Deburring does not count as a core process in machining. We can say that in this deburring process, anode metal dissolution is used.


Abrasives materials used in ECG include aluminum oxide and diamond. To prevent this, it is important to define the machining direction right from the start, when choosing the operating process and the process sequence.

Ensuring that the design of the cathode fits the workpiece area to be machined using insulation to protect the workpiece from the ECM process electrochejical other areas. Components that have intricate shapes with very low finishing tolerances are often needed. Providing short circuit detection at the DC source.

The mechanical machining and deburring of pump housings is currently considered state-of-the-art. Upper part and procesw part. Less material is removed in the Electrochemical Deburring ECD machining process; cycle times are much shorter.

The cathode is designed to maintain a gap between itself and the workpiece surface. The upper part of tool is open that means it is not insulated. Advantages of this process include: However, a precondition is that the whole process is mastered.
