­Electrosion's ECM 500 uses impulse technology with electrolytic principles to erode a workpiece, dissolving the waste material in the sodium nitrite electrolyte. It provides speed, accuracy, desirable surface finish, zero electrode wear, and the ability to cut any metal, regardless of hardness. The impulse technology overcomes traditional limitations of the gap between the electrode and job by oscillating the electrode and pulsing current simultaneously. As a result, electrode gaps down to 10 µm can be used, and because the shape of the electrode is identical to the finished part, it's easier to produce ­intricate shapes.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.
