High Precision Process Chains for the Mass Production of Functional Structured Surfaces

DTU (founded in 1829) is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increase and develop partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy. DTU has international educational exchange programmes with over 200 universities around the globe, and enjoys close research collaborations with its partners in addition to building research and educational programs.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at DTU offers education, research and innovation within manufacturing engineering, solid and fluid mechanics, material science, process technology, design of physical products, knowledge and services.

The Section for Micro/Nano/Precision Manufacturing performs world leading research and training in the fields of design, product and process development for precision/micro/nano manufacturing, tool technologies for mass production methods (precision injection moulding, precision forming), integration precision manufacturing process chains, micro/nano and precision industrial manufacturing metrology. Research activities focuses on development of advanced technologies as additive manufacturing, integration of digital technologies into manufacturing process chains, application and analytics of sensor technologies to manufacturing processes, in-line and off-line high precision metrology.

Consequentially, the laboratory of the section is fully equipped to ensure the necessary infrastructure to run the research project. Precision and μ-injection moulding machines, precision and μ-milling machine, precision sinking and μ-electrical discharge machines, μ-/nano/precision metrology laboratory (incl. optical and contact coordinate measuring machines, focus variation 3D microscope, atomic force microscope, 3D roughness instrument) and complete software suite for manufacturing process chain simulation with high computation power facility.
