Using multi­physics simu­lations to boost efficiency

05.2019 | In electrochemical machining (ECM), there is no blade contact with the work­piece. Instead, the metal atoms are removed by elec­troly­sis, which causes essen­tially no tool wear. Adapting this method to handle new work­piece geo­metries, however, is a hugely time-consuming pro­cess. Thanks to Fritz Hoffmeister (29), that is about to change.
