Micro Electro-Discharge Machining
Micro Electro Discharge Machining access is granted through the strategic partnership with IIT-CSF.
Micro Electro Discharge Machining (uEDM) is a serial rapid prototyping subtractive technique for the machining of 3D complex shapes (also with high aspect ratio) in conductive materials (metals or heavily doped semiconductors) using the localized removal of the material through the generation of high frequency sparks between a tool and the workpiece. The tool and the material are immersed in a dielectric fluid (typically an oil) and maintained at a mutual distance of a few microns. Processing resolution of the order of a few microns and very low surface roughness (Ra 0.1 to Ra 0.05) are the main features.
