EIGERlab Announces Industry's First Hands-On Micro-Manufacturing Workshop

Participants to Experience Hands-on Interactions With a Unique and Fully Functional Micro-Factory, Learn About Commercial Applications, Meet With Leading Experts

ROCKFORD, Ill., May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The EIGERlab, a major center for micro-manufacturing R&D and meso/micro-scale machine tool development in the United States, announced it will host the industry's first hands-on Micro- Manufacturing Workshop July 12-13 in Rockford, Illinois. The workshop will include presentations from the industry's foremost researchers and demonstrations of a variety of micro-machining and micro-measurement techniques. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to work in the EIGERlab Micro-Machining and Machine Tool Laboratory and participate real-time in the development of micro-part prototypes during the two-day session.

Cost for the Micro-Manufacturing Workshop is $195 for both days; participants can make reservations by calling (815) 965-3522 or emailing Email .

Attendees are encouraged to provide CAD information for micro-scale parts and part features of interest prior to the workshop so that these parts can be machined and evaluated during the workshop "hands-on" sessions. CAD files submitted to Email before June 17, 2005 will be considered for topic material.

Among the presenters and topics during the two days are K.F. Ehmann, Northwestern University, "Report on Micro-Machining R&D Worldwide"; S.G. Kapoor, University of Illinois at U-C, "Miniature Machine Tools (mMT) for Micro-Machining"; Tom Kurfess, Georgia Institute of Technology, "Metrology for Micro-Scale Manufacturing"; K. Rajurkar, University of Nebraska, "Micro-EDM and Micro-ECM", and A. Honegger, University of Illinois at U-C, "Demonstration of Miniature Machine Tool Calibration."

Companies now developing commercial meso/micro-scale machine tools will demonstrate capabilities during the workshop. Participants can discuss applications with company representatives of Atometrics, Inc., Ingersoll Machine Tools, Inc, and MicroMachines Interntional, LLC.
