Final Report - POLYTUBES (A Process Chain and Equipment for Volume Production of Polymeric Microtubular Components for Medical Device Applications)

Project ID: 229266
Funded under: FP7-NMP


This is the final report of the POLYTUBES project which has as an overall objective to develop a process chain and corresponding micro-manufacturing platform for the manufacture of polymer-microtubes and tubular micro-components for innovative products (medical and non medical applications). It aims to create new markets for European Union (EU) Small and medium-sized enterprises SMEs with innovative and economically competitive micro-products and micro-manufacturing equipment to meet the needs for a wide range of emerging applications.

The report describes the objectives of the project, outlines the members of the consortium and their main roles in the project and analyses the work performed over the 36 month period that the project has been running. It also depicts the three functional demonstrators realised and the exploitable results identified.
