refers to a small dimension plant able to produce small dimension products.
The term was proposed by the Mechanical Engineer Laboratory (MEL) of Japan in 1990. The Micro-Plant main advantages are to save great amount of resources like space, energy, materials and time.
Due to their reduced dimensions, micro-plants should be highly automated. They might contain automatic machine tools, 3 D-printers, assembly systems, quality inspection systems, material feed systems, waste elimination systems, a system to evaluate tool deterioration and a system to replace tools.
A Micro-Plant can also refer to a factory designed to produce flexible small batch production that can produce a wide variety of products as opposed to a single monolithic mass production type approach.
Typically the manufacturing processes of micro-factories take advantage of digital fabrication technology such as 3D printing and CNC machines in order to accomplish this.
