Oliver Dietze & University of Saarland Researchers from the Saarland University have developed a novel non-contact method of transforming 3D printed metal parts into high-precision technical components for specialist applications.

 .

The research team consisting of manufacturing technologists combine metal 3D Printing and Electrochemical Machining (ECM). This method allows processing of strong and lightweight metal parts to produce precision-finished components with complex geometries and dimensional tolerances of a few thousandths of a millimetre.
