EDM/ECM Processes


The Chair of Manufacturing Technology has a long-term experience in the field of electro erosive processes. The focus is set on EDM and ECM processes. The Research began in the 1950s at the WZL Aachen and is continued up to today.

EDM (Electro Discharge Machining) and ECM (Electrochemical Machining) are key technologies for the machining of materials with a challenging machinability by cutting processes. Main focuses are set both in fundamental and applied research fields.
