Emerging Technology - Time To Learn MicroMachining Techniques

Lets have brief talk about Mircomachining before we look into e-book of micro fabrication and nano manufacturing. These are the evolutionary technologies taking place in Manufacturing industry. micro machining capabilities are probably unique, with the latest generation of machines for micro-milling, micro-grinding, micro-edm and wire-edm in temperature controlled clean facilities.

Mirco Machining EbookEmerging challenges in micromachining include the need to process materials at faster speeds, in a wider range of materials and with greater precision and repeatability, and to micromachine features of increasingly smaller dimensions with ever-tighter tolerances. Many of these applications require tools beyond the capabilities of mechanical micromachining and need lasers to do the job.

Micro Fabrication and Nano Manufacturing

Examples of instruments and applications that require cutting-edge technologies include lab-on-a-chip, microfluidics, drug delivery systems, biosensors, cell sorters, cell trapping, gene sequencing, hemocytometers, nozzles, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and microfilters, which may call for complex holes, cones, channels and sample chambers. These features may need to be microscopic or uniform in size... The latest Laser cutting Micromachining can go upto positional accuracy of 20 microns and bi-directional repeatability to 1 micron with linear encoders. There are machines available which are known for precise and nano machining.
