Precision Assembly

Sponsors:  basic funding
Lifespan:  continuously

In precision assembly, components with extremely high geometric requirements of a few micrometers are assembled. Conventional robots and clamping concepts reach their limits, so that processes and handling techniques have to be developed in order to meet the high demands. Common fields of application are medical technology, manufacturing of micromechanical systems (MEMS) or optical systems.
At the Institute for Assembly Technology we examine and develop equipment, processes and strategies to achieve the required accuracy. One focus is on component handling, another on the integration of various components and processes into an overall system.

Self-Assembly is part of precision assembly at match and has its own article with more details on the website.
