Abstract

As part of this paper, extracts will be presented from the results of the joint project “MiniProd”, which is carried out by the Fraunhofer IPA together with industrial partners and sponsored by the BMBF (Federal Ministry for Education and Research/02PD2370). The aim of the research project is to develop a marketable, miniaturized highly‐flexible micro‐assembly system capable of reproducing the correct size proportions between a product and its production environment and also able to intelligently integrate processes which had earlier run separately.
