The paper deals with the development of a prototype modular equipment for electrochemical deburring to be used in case of small and medium size workpieces that can be machined just on the worktable of the equipment, but mainly in case of large parts, when the mobility and modular characteristics become of high weight because the machining takes place in situ. The main problems approached are anticipating and calculating the size, and the shape of the burrs, removing them evenly and creating a process and product that minimizes and controls the size of the burrs. Aspects concerning the conceptual and the detailed design, the simulations related to the primary current distribution using dedicated program COMSOL Multiphysics, which allows the control of the deburring process are presented. These issues are of the utmost importance for this stage of a prototype.
