Electrochemical Machining of a Micro Bore

Application ID: 13267


For several high-precision applications, especially in hydraulic systems and fuel injectors, micro bores are needed. In most cases the shape of the injection hole, especially the edge rounding, has a significant influence on the atomization of fluids and therefore on the combustion process. Usually these micro bores are machined by electrical discharge machining (EDM). Due to the process characteristics of EDM sharp edges arise and a specific influence on the edge shape is not possible. For this reason a specific adjustment of the edge rounding is required. Therefore an Electrochemical Machining (ECM) process has been developed and investigated by help of COMSOL Multiphysics.

The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product\'s capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
