Effect of Tool Coating and Cutting Parameters on Surface Roughness and Burr Formation during Micromilling of Inconel 718

Surface roughness and burr formation are among the most important surface quality metrics which determine the quality of the fabricated parts. High precision machined microparts with complex features



Applications of laser ablation to microengineering

Applications of pulsed laser ablation to the manufacture of micro- electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) and micro-opto-electro-mechanical systems (MOEMS) devices are presented. Laser ablative processes

Micromechanical engineering: a basis for the low-cost manufacturing of mechanical microdevices using microequipment

Microelectronics-based micromechanics is rather limited for the construction of 3D micromechanisms with moving parts. We propose to use microequipment to transfer the technologies of mechanical

A static model of chip formation in microscale milling

This paper discusses the development of an enhanced, static model of chip formation in micromilling processes that is able to describe the intermittency of the chip formation observed at low feeds

Investigation of the Dynamics of Microend Milling—Part I: Model Development

In microend milling, due to the comparable size of the edge radius to chip thickness, chip formation mechanisms are different. Also, the design of microend mills with features of a large shank,

Manufacturing of 3-D Microstructures Using Novel Upsams Process for Mems Applications

This paper introduces a new microfabrication technique, Ultraprecision Manufacturing of Self-Assembled Micro-Systems (UPSAMS), which combines ultraprecision micromachining

Energy Dissipation and Tool-Workpiece Contact in Ultra-Precision Machining

An experimental investigation was conducted to examine the dissipation of mechanical energy when machining at depths of cut less than several micrometers. Cutting and thrust forces which resulted in
