Electrochemical Machining (ECM) allows the manufacturing of complex shaped geometries with best surfaces at a high productivity. During the process, the metallic material is chemically removed on the atomic scale at high current densities, regardless of the mechanical properties, such as material hardness. As a result, thermal or mechanical changes in the component´s rim zone are avoided. In addition, the ECM process is free of tool wear due to the mechanical non-contact machining. Despite these numerous process-inherent advantages, the barriers to widespread market penetration are currently still too high. Among other things, this is due to the complex tool design, which must be carried out anew for each component and each material. This costly and iterative design of tooling systems makes the ECM process in most cases only in mass production economical. Many of these challenges can be partially compensated with Precision Electrochemical Machining (PECM). A goal of the "International Symposium on Electrochemical Machining Technology - INSECT" is to discuss current challenges of electrochemical machining and to show new approaches and potentials from the electrochemical basis to the industrial application.
The conference looks back on nearly fifteen years of history and offers researchers and industrial partners the opportunity to intensively exchange of experiences.
The following topics are in the focus:
process development / optimization,
machinability of materials,
process monitoring as well as
development of new ECM process variants.
