The project has developed a methodology for the rapid industrialization of μ-products/μ-parts using the μ-injection and MIM process (Metal Injection Molding). The methodology includes products and tool design rules, a specific FEAM application and control plan implementation rules. The methodology has been tested on three different parts from the medical (plastic injection and MIM) and automotive sector (plastic injection). Finally this methodology is consolidated in a Knowledge Database. This KB allows to store and retrieve in an intelligent manner:
The use of the methodology supported by the Knowledge database will be a key factor for the reduction of the μ_ parts and μ_products development and industrialization cycle time.
