    Project Details


    The aim of this project is to develop a flexible, industrial process for accurate manipulation of micro-parts, offering speed and improved, sub-micron accuracy.
    Thermal stresses induced by local irradiation of laser energy allow a contact-free, accurate manipulation in sub-micron dimensions for thin, sheet-metal parts. Several thermo-mechanical mechanisms are known to obtain both bending and shortening of a specific part of the product. This part of the product acts as an actuator.
