This chapter introduces electrochemical HMPs developed by combining electrochemical machining (ECM) with conventional finishing processes such as grinding, mechanical honing, buffing, deburring and superfinishing with an objective to overcome their limitations and to enhance their finishing capabilities. Electrochemical HMPs are generally recognized as micro-finishing processes which are used to finish gears, cylinders, micro-shafts, and other micro-, meso- and macro-engineered components in order to improve surface finish and/or to correct micro-irregularities. The current chapter also presents brief details of electrochemical-type advanced drilling processes which have been developed to meet specialized drilling requirements.
