The Meso Scale platform is a compact sized micro-factory capable of subtractive and additive technologies including diamond micromachining, energy beam and print processes.
This platform represents a new generation of high performance ultra precision machine system, eclipsing the performance of single process step machines.
This platform already benefits from the considerable design expertise of investigators who realised the FP7 funded ultra precision “Integ-Micro” machine concept. In-process metrology research output from the Nano FIB platform will also be applied to this system.
The EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Ultra Precision undertakes early stage production research to establish new processing technologies demanded for effective production of emerging products, with global outreach.
