International Symposium on Electrochemical Machining Technology - INSECT

This international symposium allows engineers and scientists who work in the field of electro-chemical machining to exchange and discuss ideas and experiences. The symposium focuses not only on technical aspects, such as microstructuring of surfaces, technology and machine development, but is also interested in fundamental research in electrochemistry on electrode-boundary surfaces and new materials.
