- Femtolaser micro ablation
- Two-Photon Polymerization (2PP)
- Atomic layer 3D nanoprinting (Selective Area Direct Atomic Layer Processing, SADALP process).
In a small self-contained white room, implemented with a new, smart, micro-manipulation and bonding system.
The machine will implement a new, flexible, fully automated hybrid process chain, compliant with the submicron accuracy targets of the new generation of micro systems, scalable to achieve throughput targets that compete against the high-volume scale manufacturing of high valued-added optoelectronics.
Moreover, each process step may be operated in reverse mode creating a very automated disassembly process useful to recover, or to remanufacture, any defective micropart.
To exploit this new manufacturing concept Mesomorph will deliver a specific Design/Manufacturing-to-Lifevalue Platform to guide the design, the engineering and production of microbots and microsystems with unprecedented dimensions, capabilities and carbon-footprint.
Finally, to ensure competitiveness and avoid the obstacles of high capital investments, a new business model based on “Manufacturing as a Service – MaaS” concept will be developed and proposed to end users for future industrial exploitation.
Mesomorph product solutions will result from a fully automated compact process chain ensuring:
- lead-time for a new product < 4 weeks;
- scrap rate < 0.01%.
They will present enhanced performances as a consequence of the ability to reach:
- 50000 parts/year throughput;
- 300 nm x,y resolution;
The number of technologies available on board and the number of materials that can be processed will widely enlarge the opportunities for:
- rapid evolution of products;
- quick and automated industrialization and ramp up < 1 week
The Mesomorph concept is based on the modular integration of 5 basic unit process operations: POSITION, ADD, SUBTRACT, JOIN, CHECK, in one machine and one control connected to a distributed, sensing system. A numerical model of the processes involved is part of a digital platform including tools to support product design and production planning and implementing a business model based on offering the use of the machine as a service – Manufacturing as a Service – MaaS.
