COOLPULSE: The breakthrough for additive manufactured parts. We are delighted to participate in the 13th International Symposium on Electrochemical Machining Technology ( INSECT ).

Robert Binder product manager ECM at Extrude Hone will present today at the INSECT Symposium  at the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS in Dresden Germany. Robert will speak about the breakthrough that COOLPULSE technology based on the ECM technology represents for the additive manufacturing part finishing.

INSECT StatementExtrude Hone has introduced COOLPULSE early this year as an innovative fast and economical way to improve surface finishing of 3D parts.

Statement from 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 for scientific discussions as well as networking.”
