Makino is hosting a special one-day event that focuses on new developments in micromanufacturing processes and equipment. The Makino Micromachining Conference is slated to take place Tuesday, Sept. 10, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Makino Technology Center in Auburn Hills, Mich. This inaugural conference is set to include demonstrations of Makino's latest micromachining technologies and guest presentations addressing manufacturing at the micro-scale.
"Micromachining technologies are taking on increased importance in a variety of markets, including medical devices, electronics, optics and communications," said Mark Rentschler, marketing manager at Makino. "Attendees will come away with insights on the latest technologies for ultra-precision machining, and the processes and techniques required for achieving high levels of accuracy and mirror-like finishes."
Makino plans to showcase new developments in micromanufacturing processes and equipment. Presentations are going to address theoretical and applied research related to processes, systems and equipment for manufacture and metrology, associated with the creation of components and systems with 3-D features to high relative accuracies in a wide range of materials.
