Cadence Expands CNC Electrochemical Grinding Technology

Cadence expanded its Electrochemical Grinding (ECG) technology at its Cranston, Rhode Island facility. This equipment uses high precision, burr-free grinding with CNC control that enables robust processing of harder materials such as spring tempered steel and heat-treated stainless steel for profile grinding- shavers and related products.

Further, the new ECG technology also allows grinding to tight tolerances and low cutting forces for thin wall parts. 

“This latest technology allows us to produce high precision, burr-free point grinding, as well as complex geometries with a cost effective process for our customers,” said John Rose, Senior Project Engineer at Cadence.  

Cadence provides design through manufacturing and full supply chain management for single use and disposable medical devices. Its global customer base includes orthopaedic, endoscopy, laparoscopy, robotics, life science and specialty industrial end-markets.

This is the second announced addition to Cadence’s capabilities since the company was acquired by investment firm Kohlberg & Company in April. In May, Cadence announced the addition of PEEK machining and molding capabilities to its suite of manufacturing services.
