Title (EN) METHOD AND SYSTEM OF ELECTROCHEMICAL MACHINING
(FR) PROCEDE ET SYSTEME D'USINAGE ELECTROCHIMIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An electrochemical machining (ECM) system for machining a workpiece includes a plurality of ECM stations. A first ECM station machines a first region of the workpiece. A second ECM station machines a second region of the workpiece separate from the first region. Additional ECM stations may also be utilized. Each ECM station includes a stationary electrode for delivering electric current for eroding material from the workpiece. Each ECM station also includes an ultrasonic transducer for determining a width of electrolyte between the stationary electrode and the workpiece. Machining of the workpiece in each ECM station is completed when the width of electrolyte reaches a predetermined width.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système d'usinage électrochimique (ECM) utilisé dans l'usinage d'une pièce, comprenant une pluralité de stations ECM. Une première station ECM procède à l'usinage d'une première zone de la pièce. Une seconde station ECM procède à l'usinage d'une seconde zone de la pièce séparée de la première zone. Des stations ECM supplémentaires peuvent également être utilisées. Chaque station ECM comprend une électrode fixe de distribution de courant électrique destiné à éroder le matériau de la pièce. Chaque station ECM comprend également un transducteur ultrasonore permettant de déterminer la largeur de l'électrolyte entre l'électrode fixe et la pièce. L'usinage de la pièce dans chaque station ECM est terminé lorsque l'électrolyte atteint une largeur prédéterminée.
