Abstract:

This report assembles and correlates information on the effects of electrochemical metal-removal ECMR processes on mechanical properties. Of special interest and concern are the effects of ECMR on fatigue strength. The report covers four electrochemical metal-removal processes electrochemical machining ECM, electrolytic grinding EG, electrochemical milling, and electropolishing. General characteristics and applications of the four methods are presented and discussed special emphasis is placed on ECM. The ECMR processes are especially useful in shaping high-strength and difficult-to-machine metals and alloys, as well as in shaping parts with unusual, complex, or fragile characteristics. Author
