Micro/Ultra Precision Machining and Its Applications

Date: 17 Oct 2007 - 21 Nov 2007

Venue: Seminar Room (Valley Block, Level 1)

Course Introduction  

The functionality, portability and value of many products can be substantially increased with reduced size/weight and increased dimension accuracy. With the trend towards miniaturisation, micro-machining and ultra-precision machining are becoming more and more important for micro parts manufacturing. These components find wide applications in optical engineering, bio-medical engineering, precision engineering, and MEMS systems. In this course, micro/ultra-precision machining technologies and machine tool characterisation will be covered.

Course Team
