Machining 4.0 at Forum Innovation Medizintechnik Tuttlingen 14th October 2020

At this important yearly meeting of Medical Mountains, Cetim has given a remote overview of PECM, an emerging innovative technology of ion dissolution machining for polishing implants and some examples: tibial base in CrCo; cup in Ta6V, CrCo, stainless; femoral head in stainless; knee condyle in CrCo; intervertebral discs in Ta6V or CrCo. The advantages are a high reproduction accuracy, a low Ra: 0.03 μm for CoCr, no thermal impact, no micro-cracking or white coatings, no burrs, roughing, finishing, and polishing in 1 operation with 1 electrode.
