Tip Brush - New Electrochemical Electrode

Abstract

1 ABSTRACT This invention relates to the electro chemical processes and its applications in metal cleaning, polishing, etching, Electro-Discharge Machining (EDM) or 5 welding. In particular the use of carbon fibre as the electrode tool in the form of a brush where the majority of the brush is rigid and only the contact tip is soft. With the use of a standard dielectric solution or conductive solution the new electrode design can focus the action in the desired area with maximum control and without arc damage to the microstructure of the piece being treated. Using 10 this new system the solution can be controlled much easier and economically and as the electrode wears the soft tip will relocate automatically up the rigid carbon fibre only remaining soft at the electrode tip even if the electrode is one quarter its original size due to wear.
