Report of the work done in association with Glasgow Caledonian University and it is about designing and developing of a non‐conventional machining system aimed on using electro chemical reactions for milling processes, called Electrochemical Milling System (ECMIL). This represents an evolution of an existing process, never developed because of several technical problems. The aim of the thesis is demonstrating process feasibility by experimental tests and build up bases for process improvement. Tests had been made using a simple and cheap system comparing to the classic ECM process. The tool had been moved in one unique direction, saving its handling on a plane for future works. Satisfying results had been obtained, though used machining parameters are different to the calculated ones; this is mainly caused by the way the electrolyte passed through the working area, allowing a not proper current transfer. This last aspect future works will focus on.
