Micro is the way of the future. More and more companies are trying to miniaturize their products and enhance performance by adding micro devices and features. This approach offers plenty of benefits, including improved customization and ease of use, a lower environmental footprint, and cost reduction. To make sure you cross all the t’s and dot the i’s, Sirris shares first-hand R&D expertise and state-of-the-art equipment.
Micromanufacturing for product miniaturization
Think small for big impact
Using smaller, more precise components limits the weight and size of your products. This, in turn, has a positive effect on material sourcing, transport, storage and recycling. Moreover, micromanufacturing enables you to integrate highly reliable functionalities to products or processes that are off-limits with conventional manufacturing methods: detection, communication, automation, etc.
A gamechanger in all industries
Companies and research partners from various domains are free to leverage our R&D skills and technological resources to develop micro products:
- Medtech and healthcare (microfluidic lab-on-a-chip, microsurgery instruments, customized devices, etc.)
- Chemistry and pharmaceutics (continuous flow microreactors, etc.)
- Agriculture and food (portable devices for quality control in the field, etc.)
- Environment (tailored and miniaturized packaging of gas sensors, etc.)
- Space and aeronautics (opto-mechanical micro-components, ultra-lightweight assemblies, etc.)
- Manufacturing (integration of sensors in confined environments, etc.)
- Automotive (micro-optics, in-mold structural electronics, etc.)
- Electronics (printed electronics, plastronics, etc.)
