A report on a seminar in “Micro and nano manufacturing” is organised by the UK Manufacturing Technology Association in partnership with the University of Birmingham School of Engineering's Machining Research Group. It covers presentations from UK industry and academia plus two from European organisations. The state of micro and nanomanufacturing in the UK is presented and some of the processes including microelectro‐discharge machining and micromilling are discussed. Machine tool design for high‐speed micromachining is an another topic as is the aspects of CAD and CAM together with the special measures needed when creating programs for micromilling. Finally some of the UK Government (and EU) funding currently available for micro and nanotechnology is listed.
