Advanced Micro-EDM / Nano-Grinding Equipment

Description

SmalTec International, LLC, a microtechnology solutions provider, announced it will launch and showcase its most advanced Micro-EDM / Nano-Grinding Equipment at the MICROMACHINE 2006 exhibition in Tokyo, Japan, this November. This year's 17th International Tradeshow for Micro/MEMS & Nano Technologies will provide a preview of what SmalTec has to offer to the micro- and nanotechnology industries.

"By design, SmalTec has been a true pioneer by contributing its engineering talents and resources to the micro- & nanotechnology industries," noted Jerry Mraz, General Manager of SmalTec. "In early 2006 we introduced our M2I2-u Best-In-Class Micro-EDM machine to the Small Technology Industry and at the MICROMACHINE 2006 exhibition in Tokyo we are introducing our newest technological advancement – the most innovative Micro-EDM / Nano-Grinding Machine on the market, the M2I7-n."

SmalTec's M2I7-n Micro-EDM / Nano-Grinding machine is capable of next generation, ultra-precise results, such as perfect round holes to within 0.20 micron diameter and positional tolerance, plus complex micro patterns to true 3-D contoured shapes are achievable. Grinding results produce a mirror finish surface roughness of sub- 5 nanometer Rmax. The M2I7-n's positional range of X, Y, and Z is 50 millimeters per axis, its step resolution is 10 nanometer, and its positional repeatability is 170 nanometers.

"Mechanical and electrical functions are getting more and more concentrated in a great part of industrial products," explained Dr. T. Masuzawa, Emeritus Professor of the University of Tokyo and founder of Masuzawa Micromachining Technology Consulting. "Micromachining is one of the important technologies which support this tendency."

SmalTec has been offering Best-In-Class Micro-EDM and nano-grinding equipment, full-service prototyping, and micro manufacturing solutions and services for its high-tech customers since 2002. The company's goal is to raise the bar on the small technology industry's precision, capabilities, and through-put.
