Micro and Nanomanufacturing


Micro and Nanomanufacturing


Manufacturing on the small scale is the technology for production of miniaturized components and functional products. Micro and nanomanufacturing is a key to the development of modern industry in many countries. Nowadays, the use of microcomponents and miniaturized functional products from metals, polymers, ceramics, composites and advanced materials has increased in various areas of science and technology due to their special properties, with applications in microelectronic, biomedical, aircraft, automotive, defence and aerospace, as well other advanced industries.

Topics to be discussed include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Precision manufacturing/ micromachining

  • Microturning; microdriling, micromiling

  • Micro and nanogringing

  • FEM modelling micromachining processes

  • Micromanufacturing to medical applications

  • Sustainability in micro and nanomanufacturing

  • Micro and nanotribology

  • Nanocomposites

  • Tribology of nanocomposites
