Abstract—In the experiment, typical results at the microscopic level, such as fine grating and micro indenting
are demonstrated. It is suggested that a strategy of combining aspect in a centralized and
distributed manner might be use to increase both productivity and flexibility in manufacturing.
The current techniques for micro manufacturing mostly are silicon based. These manufacturing
techniques are not suitable for use in demanding applications like aerospace, micro factory and
bio-medical industries. Micro-electrochemical machining removes materials while holding micron
tolerance and μECM can machine hard a navel μECM utilizing high frequency voltage pulses
and closed loop control. The work piece materials were used as “Coinage metals”. The research
studied the effect of various parameters. The experimental data on small drilled holes agreed
with theoretical modal burns can be effectively removed by optimal μECM. A sacrificial layer
helped to improve the hole profile since. It reduced above 50% corner rounding. It electrochemical
manufacturing localization is closely related with accuracy and the accuracy will be improved
when the localization is enhanced. Micro holes were electrochemical drilled in stainless steel
using nanosecond pulse power, millisecond pulse power and direct current power. The
experimental results showed that the localization could be significantly enhanced using
nanosecond pulse power.
