Symposium on micro- and precision machining

Chemical technology Fysics Manufacturing
Mikroniek 2010-6 by Frans Zuurveen 6 May 2012

Micromachining technologies were the theme of an interesting symposium organised by Mikrocentrum in collaboration with K.U.Leuven on 14 October in Leuven, Belgium. It once again showed that classic machining technologies like milling still are able to move their precision limits. The symposium also demonstrated that a nearly classic technology like chemical milling becomes more attractive by adding clever inventions. Materials like ceramics that were thought to be difficult to machine gain in application width by new insights in their forming and machining. And the symposium showed that combining existing technologies leads to new opportunities for realising high-tech precision products.
