Microfabrication opens up a number of interesting new ways for companies to set themselves apart and boost their competitiveness. These possibilities include the production of miniaturised components, microstructured surfaces and embedded microsensors.

Miniaturisation in practice

Our know-how and equipment, combined with our extensive network of partners means our lab can serve as a one-stop shop for rising to your challenges.

Sirris Microfabrication Application Lab (SMALL) in a nutshell

The SMALL Lab provides all-round expertise and high-tech infrastructure for:

  1. Miniaturisation in product development
  2. Processing and reproducing small components
  3. Using microtextures to serve surface functions
  4. Selective material deposition
  5. Embedding microsystems (sensors, light sources, etc.).

The SMALL Lab can offer specific assistance in three areas of expertise:

  • Microprocessing (micromilling and EDM)
  • Microreplication (microcasting  and powder moulding)
  • Selective material deposition at the micro level (aerosol jet printing).

In this way we can help to realise applications in domains including microfluids, micromechanics, micro-optics, packaging, printed electronics, sensors, tool production, surface treatment, prototyping and metrology.
