Electro-Erosive Ablation

With the technologies of electrical discharge machining (EDM) and electrochemical machining (ECM), it becomes possible to machine almost force free electrically conductive materials that are extremely hard or difficult to machine. Based on its wide range of practical experience with the spark erosion technology and its profound understanding of the physical processes that are involved, the Fraunhofer IPT is developing and optimizing electro-erosive processes to machine new materials, to discover and engineer the underlying mechanisms and to design innovative process chains.
