Micro Machining and Machining Productivity

Date: 20 Oct 2004 - 24 Nov 2004

Venue: SIMTech, Seminar Room, Valley Block, Level 1

Course Introduction

The convenience and value of many products can be substantially increased with reduced size and weight. With the trend towards miniaturisation, micro machining becomes increasingly important in fabricating micro parts. It has found wide applications in optical engineering, bio-medical engineering, precision engineering and MEMS systems. In this course, micro mechanical machining technologies and machining productivity will be covered.
