Pre-Conference Workshops
Metrology: Quality Control for Medical or Micro components
Workshop Leader: Thomas Kurfess, Georgia Institute of Technology

How do you know you’re getting the measurements you need? Depending on what you’re measuring and the technology you’re using, you may be getting what you expect or something completely different. With a focus on highly precise small to micro measurements, this workshop will help you use what you have better and to understand if another system might be better for your needs.

Topics covered will include:

  • Feature-based metrology
    • Least squares fit
    • Minimum/maximum
    • CAD model comparison
  • Dimensional metrology – both rigid and flexible components/devices
  • Surface finish
  • Uncertainty
  • Data analysis
  • Comparisons of when to use technology

MicroManufacturing Fundamentals
Workshop Leader: J. Rhett Mayor, Georgia Institute of Technology

This workshop will cover the following topics:

  • Introduction to Micro Machining
    • Mechanical Removal and Ablative Removal Processes
    • Electric discharge and Electrochemical Removal Processes
    • Introduction to Micro Molding: Current Processes and Techniques
    • Introduction to Micro Forming: Current Processes and Techniques
    • Introduction to Fixturing and Workholding
    • Micro/Meso Metrology: Characterizing Micro/Meso Products
    • Current State of Micro/Meso-scale Machining and Machine Tool Systems Research
