Abstract

Non-contact material removal processes offer numerous advantages over traditional machining approaches and no where is this more apparent than in the fabrication of micro devices. Current micromachining techniques such as microgrinding and micromilling have limitations with respect to their positioning accuracy and tool deflections. Electro thermal processes such as microEDM and laser machining usually result in a heat affected zone being produced. Other approaches such as etching and non-contact ultraprecision polishing are either costly or are not suitable for high throughput. In order to address these limitations, alternative micromachining techniques are required.
