Latrobe, PA, 15650

Press release date: January 31, 2013

Kennametal Extrude Hone and PEMtec have signed an agreement to supply customers with precision electro chemical machining (PECM) technology. Through electro-chemical metal removal, PECM can shape complex geometries in practically all metals, e.g., in highly tempered steel, rolling bearing steel, powder-metallurgy steel, and super-alloys. PECM also taps applications that could not be feasibly manufactured, if at all, in the past by conventional machining techniques, including milling, grinding or electrical-discharge machining (EDM).

As Kennametal Extrude Hone already supplies advanced metal-finishing technologies to a variety of industries, the PEMtec alliance is seen as a logical extension of Kennametal's global portfolio. Fuel injection, for example, is seen as a key application for PECM growth, as increased polution standards force fuel injection manufacturers worldwide to obtain increased "freedom of design" that was formerly limited by conventional manufacturing methods. PECM market opportunities also have been identified in automotive gear boxes and elsewhere in engine and powertrain areas. PECM can also advance production of precision medical components, where manufacturing minimally invasive surgical tools is a challenge because of material conditions and complex shape requirements.

PEMtec was founded in Dilligen, Saarland in 1995 and moved to Forbach in France in 2003 and has a proven record of industrial PECM success with a base of installed machines. This alliance is not only a win-win for the two companies, but even more so for customers. Customers will benefit by getting world-class PECM technology and support from (KEH) with a global presence for sales, service, application and spare parts, supported by dedicated local teams.
