Advanced Methods and Tools for Handling and Assembly in Microtechnology

Objective

ASSEMIC is devoted to training and research in handling and assembly at the micro-dimension, involving advanced methods and tools and providing a multidisciplinary, complementary approach. This is to be achieved by combining the research competence of R&D centres and universities, with the application oriented view from SMEs and industrial partners. The scientific and technical complementarity required by micro-handling and assembly -an intrinsically multidisciplinary topic- will be ensured by merging the partners expertise in fields as design of hybrid MEMS and micro-tools, material physics and tribology, laser technology, advanced control techniques and artificial intelligence, etc. Following workpackages have been defined: 1. High resolution positioning systems, micromotors and microrobots. 2. Advanced tools and control for microhandling (visual/force feedback, haptic interfaces, etc.) 3. Microassembly tools and strategies (self-assembly, bonding, soldering ) 4. Quality management for industrial manufacturability 5. Know-how management (e-learning, technology transfer and dissemination, etc.) Special focus will be placed in training and dissemination, including workshops, open-door days, summer schools, newsletters and e-learning. Optimized and cost efficient handling and assembly of hybrid Microsystems keeps being a challenge, as assembly and packaging constitutes still a great part of MEMS manufacturing costs. ASSEMIC will raise the European technological competence and merge the research effort in this field, by multidisciplinary training both early-stage and experienced researchers in highly qualified research centres and universities, developing research and providing the practical focus of SMEs and industrial partners.
