Components of innovative and successful products are characterised more and more frequently by outstanding levels of surface quality, form tolerances on a nano-meter scale or an extremely high degree of miniaturisation. As a result of that the market of highly integrated, miniaturised systems or ultra-precise manufactured parts is increasing continuously. Applications are to be found in the branches mechatronics, micro-electronics, bio-medical engineering, optics, automotive engineering or chemical engineering.

If such extremely demanding manufacturing specifications are to be met, it is vital to have the right production equipment, including ultra-precision and micro machine tools. Wherever precision on a nano-meter scale is required in the production processes or there is a need for part sizes on a micro-meter scale, a combination of thorough theoretical knowledge and practical know-how is essential for the manufacturer.

Course Overview

The module "Precision and Micro Engineering - In the Application" is the second course about Precision and Micro Engineering within the VisionOnline programme. The first course "Precision and Micro Engineering - An Overview" presented the technical basis of micro-machining operations, micro-machining with lasers and micro-plastics processing. The aim of course two is to expand on the contents of the first course and covers the following:

  • Manufacturing of optical and micro-optical components,
  • Tool making and replication techniques in precision and micro engineering and
  • Metrology methods in ultra-precision and micro technology.

Course Objectives

This course will provide you with a deep insight into the state of the art technologies and future trends in the field of precision and micro technology.
