Applications

PECM is well suited to production of high value metal components made of high performance alloys and requiring tight tolerances, high surface quality, or unique geometries.

Unparalleled Accuracy

Creating precision parts from advanced metal alloys is a growing challenge facing our customers. Next generation PECM permits novel designs, produces higher quality parts, and can machine hard or temperature resistant alloys at higher speeds than competing technologies. PECM is capable of machining any conductive metal or alloy and is particularly well suited for those materials that are difficult to machine through conventional methods. Commonly machined materials include nickel, iron, and titanium based alloys in a variety of formats such as cast (including single crystal), forged, additively manufactured, and powdered metallurgy. PECM is best suited for high-value metal components in highly stressed environments such as orthopeadic implants, surgical tools, turbine engines, turbochargers, rocket motors, heat exchangers, sensors, and energy applications.
