Invitation


Partner of INSECT 2019:


Welcome to the 15th International Symposium on Electrochemical Machining Technology (INSECT).

Electrochemical machining (ECM) becomes more important with increasing requirements on material properties, manufacturing technologies and workpiece quality. In the ECM community, microprocessing plays an increasing role in addition to conventional fields of ECM applications, i.e. aircraft manufacturing or the automotive industry. Besides regular metals, customers focus more and more on materials difficult to machine, such as cemented carbides, titanium or metallic glasses. For that reason, extensive knowledge of the fundamental electrochemical processes at high current densities is just as essential as the interaction between processing and material properties, and a further development of the technical equipment.

For future challenges, close cooperation between researchers and industrial partners is a fundamental condition for innovative results and their rapid transfer to industrial applications. The INSECT brings together academia and industry, and offers a perfect platform to exchange ideas and contribute knowledge in the field of Electrochemical Machining.

After Düsseldorf (2004), Freiburg (2005), Dresden (2006, 2009) Chemnitz (2007, 2013), Brussels (2010), Vienna (2011), Krakow (2012), Saarbrücken (2014), Linz (2015), Mechelen (2016), Dresden (2017) and Aachen (2018) this year’s symposium is held in Saarbrücken, taking place at the Institute of Production Engineering of Saarland University.
