The European Society for Precision Engineering and Nanotechnology workshop will be supported by the EMRP project Microparts (IND59)
The emergence of products based on micro- and nano-technology has increased rapidly during the last two decades. The first commercially available products were based on micro electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) or nano electro-mechanical systems (NEMS). However an increase in products based on other materials such as metals, polymers and ceramics has focused many efforts towards this area, known as micro/nano manufacturing. Micro/nano manufacturing is recognized as a key element in bridging the gap between the nano and macro worlds, with relevant sectors including the automotive and medical industries.
The challenges and opportunities that micro/nano manufacturing present have led the European Society for Precision Engineering and Nanotechnology (Euspen) to organise an internationally-coordinated meeting to address this seminal topic.
The Micro/Nano Manufacturing Workshop, to be held in November 2015, will be supported by the EMRP Joint Research Project ’Multi-sensor metrology for microparts in innovative industrial products’, which aims to address the problems related to the high-accuracy measurement of small complex features of microparts. The workshop will host a keynote and several presentations and posters covering the newest developments and research on this increasingly important topic. The workshop will also host several training seminars covering practical aspects of multi-sensor metrology.
