We offer a family of high-efficiency Precise Electrochemical Machining solutions suitable for prototyping, batch quantities and mass production of high precision metal parts. Each PEMMachine has been engineered to pair perfectly with a PEMAqua electrolyte processing/supply unit, a PEMPower generator unit, and a PEMControl operator station — all perform in tandem for the ultimate in precision. Learn more about each component below.
We offer three high-efficiency PEM machine models: the PEM 400 with small footprint and smart technology; the PEM 600, our mid-size highly-versatile choice; and the PEM 800, which is ideal for larger parts and mass production.
|DESIGN||Free-standing cabinet with HMI and controls mounted at eye level and located in close proximity to the PEMMachine.|
