Robotic Assembly of Three Dimensional MEMS Structures

Date: 17 Feb 2005 - 17 Feb 2005

Venue: Auditorium, Level 3, SIMTech Tower Block, 71 Nanyang Drive


This presentation describes a micro-assembly technique that has been developed to assemble MEMS (Micro Electromechanical Systems) 2-dimensional structures into 3-dimensional microstructures. Two new joint designs referred to as ‘key-lock’ joints and ‘inter-lock’ joints will also be discussed along with the experimental results.

About the Speaker
