The mass-replication nature of the process calls for fast monitoring of process parameters and product geometrical characteristics. In this direction, the present study addresses the possibility to develop a micro manufacturing platform
for micro assembly injection moulding with real-time process/product monitoring and metrology. The study represent a new concept yet to be developed with great potential for high precision mass-manufacturing of highly functional 3D multi-material (i.e. including metal/soft polymer) micro components. The activities related to HINMICO project objectives proves the importance of using tool geometries as reference calibrated artefacts to establish effective process technology development and control. The results allow identifying the correct process windows for optimal part quality reducing product dimensional variation in the micrometer dimensional range. The proposed metrological approach enabled to quantify product dimensional variations based on process and tooling capabilities.
