While nano and microelectromechani- cal system (MEMS) technologies have already made a significant impact on the manufacturing landscape through their ability to offer innovative products that have significantly enhanced performance, there remains a wealth of innovative potential for manufacturing to exploit.
Focusing on the technologies that will ultimately change the way manufacturers operate, MM Live, together with MEMS Live and NANO Live, stages the UK’s largest yearly showcase of these technologies. This year’s show, which takes place in Birmingham on September 25 and 26, will provide visitors with access to a market-leading resource of nano and MEMS manufacturing expertise.
Learning from the Experts
The conference and seminar programmes accompanying the exhibition will be ‘packed full’ with the latest developments, trends and application-based case studies – all presented by many of the industry’s leading figures. From fundamental process developments to the latest technological advances for next- generation products, the programmes are designed to inform visitors new to the technologies through to the most advanced practitioners.
Target visitor groups include senior-level managers and directors responsible for research and development, design, production and validation within almost any engineering or manufacturing organisation. Applications range from medical, transport, energy, electronics and telecoms to consumer product manufacturing.
The keynote presentation will focus on paving the ground for the next generation of micro- and nano-enabled products, while other lectures will deal with the use of bulk metallic glasses for producing microreplication masters, inte- gration using three-dimensional MID-tech- nology-enabled miniaturisation, the process chain for the manufacture of polymeric tubular microcomponents and the polytube microfactory concept, laser processes for micro applications, deep engraving of metallic materials using fibre lasers with optimised quality and pulse para- meters, and the practical aspects of machining quality and processing speed in modern laser manufacturing.
The keynote presentation will focus on micromachining fundamentals, while the other lecturers will zero in on reducing manufacturing costs through accuracy, the five-axis micromilling machine, the design of smart cutting tools, micromachining and nanostructured coatings for resource and energy efficient manufacturing, on-board optical measurement of workpieces and tools in EDM and milling, advances in X-ray CT metrology, and optical form measurements of complex microcomponents.
