Mechanical μ-machining technology enables highly detailed shapes and removes material of a workpiece with miniature wearable tools.
Posalux high-tech 2.5D micromachining solutions are tailored for mass production and mainly dedicated to the electronics industry.
Mechanical micromachining, commonly known as micromachining, is a specialized manufacturing technology that involves the use of micro tools, such as micro-endmills or micro-drills, with geometrically defined cutting edges. This subtractive fabrication process crafts devices or features with dimensions in the micrometer range. It mirrors traditional machining in approach but operates on a distinctly smaller scale, necessitating specialized equipment and techniques to define microscale structures or components. Mechanical micromachining provides:
- Cost-effective solution for small-batches
- Complex geometry
- Reduced waste
- Direct production
Drilling and routing of composites and non-ferrous materials for printed circuit boards (PCB) industry
