Micromachining Using Electrochemical Discharge Phenomenon book cover

Micromachining Using Electrochemical Discharge Phenomenon

Fundamentals and Application of Spark Assisted Chemical Engraving

This book explains the fundamentals of SACE, promotes the technology, and encourages researchers and engineers from industry to use it for their specific applications. Therefore, the book, after presenting in details the fundaments of SACE (in particular the Electrochemical Discharges), deals mainly with practical aspects of implementing the machining technology. The book is written so that researchers from fields other than micro-technology (e.g., from life science) will be able to build a simple machining set-up, together with his mechanical work-shop, for individual needs.

Engineers in industries dealing with micro-machining of materials such as glass, polymers, and ceramics
