System Overview

We offer a family of high-efficiency Precise Electrochemical Machining solutions suitable for prototyping, batch quantities and mass production of high precision metal parts. Each PEMMachine has been engineered to pair perfectly with a PEMAqua electrolyte processing/supply unit, a PEMPower generator unit, and a PEMControl operator station — all perform in tandem for the ultimate in precision. Learn more about each component below.

PEMMachine

  • A high-precision shaping process, suitable for virtually any metal
  • Simultaneous machining of both macrostructures and microstructures
  • High standard of surface finish — close tolerance reproduction capability (2 – 5 µm)
  • Contact-free machining
  • Process doesn’t cause any electrode wear
  • Metals can be machined regardless of material hardness
  • Surface finishes of Ra ±0.05µm or better achieved as standard (dependent on the process, material, and electrode selected).
  • Short processing times: feed rates between 0.1 and 3 mm/min
  • Suitable for all manufacturing volumes: mass production, batch quantities and prototyping
  • Absolutely burr-free
  • Virtually unlimited choice of conductive electrode material, dependent on the quantity of parts to be produced.
  • Consistent dimensional accuracy in series production
  • Process generates no thermal or mechanical stresses – producing NO change to material microstructure
  • A profitable and highly efficient process
  • No microcracks = excellent corrosion resistance achieved
  • No white layers
  • Components can be roughed, finished and polished in a single operation
  • Suitable for machining superalloys (inconel, hastelloy, etc.), powdered metal and titanium alloys
PEM Technologies - Machines

We offer three high-efficiency PEM machine models: the PEM 400 with small footprint and smart technology; the PEM 600, our mid-size highly-versatile choice; and the PEM 800, which is ideal for larger parts and mass production.

PEMPower

The state-of-the-art, high efficiency PEMPower source generator delivers precision pulse power — monitoring voltage, current and pulse length in the µ-second range. Modular cabinet allows multiplePEMPower units to be connected in parallel for maximum pulse current up to 9600A.

PEMAqua

The electrolyte processing and supply unit for the PEMMachine is environmentally-friendly and automated. The PEMAqua provides microfiltering with variable flow rate and controlled pH, conductivity, and temperature.
