Micro Machining

In general micro machining is the removing (as in drilling, planing, or shaping) of small amounts of material (such as metal) by action other than that of a sharp-edged tool. This is done with the help of an electron beam.

  • 2+1 is Not Always 3 - In the microworld unity is not always strength

    If a person pushes a broken-down car alone, there is a certain effect. If another person helps, the result is the sum of their efforts. If two micro-particles are pushing another microparticle, however, the resulting effect may not necessarily be the sum their efforts. A recent study published in Nature Communications, measured this odd effect that scientists call “many body.”

  • Hannover Messe: Photochemical metallization allows the manufacture of touchscreens in a single step

    The research scientists at INM - Leibniz Institute for New Materials are presenting a new process that, in a single step, allows manufacture of conductive paths that are just a few micrometers in width on flexible foils. As a result, new designs for appliances with flexible or even rollable displays will be possible.

  • Künstliche Moleküle

    Eine neue Methode erlaubt es Wissenschaftlern der ETH Zürich und von IBM, aus verschiedenen Arten von Mikrokügelchen künstliche Moleküle herzustellen. Solche winzige Objekte möchten die Forschenden dereinst für Mikroroboter, in der Photonik sowie der biochemischen Grundlagenforschung verwenden.

  • The laser - tool for innovations: LZH at the Hannover Messe 2016

    Individual manufacturing, efficient processes, three-dimensional lightweight construction, smart parts: At the Hannover Messe from 25 to 29 April 2016, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will present current research for the technology of tomorrow. Under the motto “The laser – tool for innovations” the LZH will again be exhibiting at the Pavilion of the State of Lower Saxony in hall 2, stand A08.

  • Tiny microbots that can clean up water

    Researchers from the Max Planck Institute Stuttgart have developed self-propelled tiny ‘microbots’ that can remove lead or organic pollution from contaminated water.
