Technology Lecture on Nanoprecision Micro-mechanical Fabrication Technologies

Date: 19 May 2009 - 19 May 2009

Venue: Training Room 1, Tower Block, Level 3

The Materials Fabrication Laboratory at the RIKEN Advanced Science Institute, Japan was set up to develop revolutionary and new material processing technologies in grinding, lapping, polishing, cutting and forming for an extensive range of materials. Through advanced research activities on ultraprecision, ultrafine, nanoprecision and ultra-smooth machining processes, required for the fabrication of advanced functional devices such as optical and electronic components, the research of a new field of micro-mechanical fabrication technologies was launched. Surface functional modification, transcription, measurement and evaluation techniques, aiming at a wide variety of materials, precision, mechanics and scale ranging from micrometer to nanometer level, to meet practical and applied industrial needs are the other research areas at RIKEN.

A nanoprecision/ micro-manufacturing systems based on ELID (ELectrolytic In-process Dressing), method has been developed for the advanced production shops. This is a advanced micro-mechanical fabrication tools for manufacturing of advanced micro- components. This presentation will cover the concept and the features of the developed fabrication systems and tools, and also the results achieved. Good performances for nanoprecision/ micro-manufacturing on the developed machine-tools with ELID, will also be featured.
