@Tutorial: AM Transformation

A course by TMG Muenchen

Information about the course

AM Micro-factory Transformation
refers to a small dimension factory able to produce small dimension products.

The term was proposed by the Mechanical Engineer Laboratory (MEL) of Japan  in 1990. The micro-factory main advantages are to save great amount of resources like space, energy, materials and time.

Due to their reduced dimensions, micro-factories 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-factory 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.
