Medical, aerospace, energy, and electronics markets require tinier, less invasive, and/or space-saving micro devices. The tiniest parts in an assembly are often the ones that enable the device's primary function, but are also the components most likely to pose manufacturing, handling, and assembly challenges. These products require customized, integrated, and automated solutions to ensure their success out of the gate. This pesentation provides an overview of the advances in micro machining and assembly technology relating to these micro devices. Learn More
