Theoretical and Experimental Investigations for Profile Electrolytic Machining with Rotating Electrode
In this paper, Mathematical investigations are discussed for electrolyte temperature, gas concentration and pressure distribution along inter-electrode gap width.
The results of the experimental investigations will be presented as well as selected examples of practical applications of Electrochemical Machining with Rotating Electrode (ECM-RE) optimization such as machining of profile thin-walled elements and of form cutting tools. High surface quality as obtained in the machining process (Ra-0.16 ÷ 0.64 μm, accuracy +0.01 ÷ 0.02 mm) whereas the productivity turned out to be better as high as compared profile grinding.
