Main Focus

Design of Micro Systems

Research Focus

KEmikro is one of the few research institutions worldwide which focus on the design of micro systems. Particularly micro systems are developed which can be fabricated at such low lost that even small scale fabrication is economic and can be performed with limited investment costs. This allows also medium and small enterprises to fabricate and sell micro systems.

Low cost micro systems can be fabricated especially from polymers. Therefore, micro systems from polymers play a central role. However, in principal always the best solution is searched for every fabrication and application.

KEmikro is particularly successful with the development of fabrication processes generating micro systems by ultrasonic hot embossing and welding. These processes are distinguishing by their short cycle times of only a few seconds and by investment costs of only a few 10,000 €.

The results of research are also introduced in the lectures "Microtechnical Design", "Design of Micro Systems", and "Introduction to Micro System Technology".
