Abstract : An investigation of electrolytic or electrochemical machining - a metal removal method is described and the advantages over other machining methods are reported. Special emphasis was given to: investigating effects of process variables, including electrolytes, on metal removal rate and surface finish; investigating high current density electrolytic cell phenomena; defining process mathematical relationships; demonstrating a mathematical model on a digital computer for process simulation and design of cutting tools.
