Ultra High Aspect Ratio Micro Tool Fabrication using ECM

This research focused on producing ultra high aspect ratio micro tools using the PECMM process. We developed a pulsed micro ECM system in-house to fabricate high aspect ratio micro tools. 

Shown in the Figure 1 is a short description of the process involved:

 Shown below in Figure 2 is a micro tool with ultra  high aspect ratio fabricated at MANLAB.

These micro tools are used to do micromachining such as deep hole drilling and machining micro structures with higher aspect ratio and more complex geometry.
