Paper Title:
Development of a Prototype of Electrochemical Machining
  Abstract

Electrochemical machining (ECM) is the controlled removal of material by anodic dissolution in an electrolytic cell in which the workpiece is the anode and the tool is the cathode. The ECM presents the advantages: three-dimensional surfaces with complicated profiles can be easily machined in a single operation, irrespective of the hardness and strength of the material. ECM offers a higher rate of metal removal as compared to traditional and nontraditional methods, especially when high machining currents are employed. There is no wear of the tool, which permits repeatable production. This work shows a study of development of a prototype of electrochemical machining (ECM) developed at the Federal University of Uberlândia Minas Gerais-Brazil. A state-of-the-art ECM system is the art of assemblage of facilities including a proper ECM machine, a power supply, a process parameter control system, and an electrolyte preparation, feed and purification system. With the prototype developed, the material removal rate (MRR) was studied. The MRR was influenced by tool feed rate and type of electrolyte.
