PECM (precision electrochemical machining) is a way of removing metal using an electrochemical process. PECM is generally used for manufacturing complex or difficult-to-machine parts in large series. Common applications include injector valve plates used in common-rail injection systems and the production of shaving heads. The PECM process, as described in this Mikroniek article, is a further development of the PECM technology by French company PEMTec SNC. In the Netherlands, Ter Hoek as a PEMTec Application Center is looking to further exploit the benefits of this technology. (Image courtesy of Ter Hoek)
