With products and components getting smaller and smaller, micro-EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) is a promising technology for machining micro ceramics components. However, the challenges are formidable. Extremely precise machine tools and machining processes with an ultra-small machining unit are essential. This requires generation of low-energy, ultra-short electrical pulses. And knowledge of physical and mechanical properties is needed to gain insight in the dominant material removal mechanisms. Extended applications for ceramic components with an appropriate material-specific, structural design, as well as feasible and cost-effective manufacturing methods are an absolute must to make micro-EDM applicable to future innovations.
