This paper reports on high-precision finishing of gears by Electrochemical Honing (ECH) process. It is one of the most potential micro-finishing process in which material is removed by anodic dissolution combined with mechanical abrasion of bonded abrasive grains. The precision finishing of gears by ECH is a productive, high accuracy, long tool life gear finishing process. The present study contains a detailed description of the process principle, influencing parameters, process capabilities,
