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 simulation,

  • process monitoring as well as

  • development of new ECM process variants.

parking permit ? (please fill in)

The RWTH Aachen has introduced her parking management with parking controls in her areas. Therefore you need a parking permit for parkzone U when visiting us with your own or rented car. We therefore kindly ask you to inform us whether you need a parking ticket or not. If you need a ticket we will send it to you. There will be no additional costs for you but we have to pay for it, so we kindly ask you to order a ticket only in case you really need one.
You find the corresponding parking area of parkzone U in the Forckenbeckstrasse (Visit WZLforum)
In the area around our seminar building the traffic and parking situation is affected by construction work of the RWTH Aachen Campus. We hope for your understanding. If you have got any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Exclusively for the purpose of postal submission of similar offers my name and address will be electronically processed and saved (subject to our AGB). We would appreciate to sent you our seminar-information:
