EMRP Joint Research Project supports influential engineering community workshop

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.
