Microtechnology is smaller, lighter and more effective than ever before, and is now replacing many traditional technologies in high-tech products. For example, miniaturised components, such as sensors, increase functionality without taking up a lot of space; new findings in the field of micromaterial processing are providing surfaces with unimagined properties; and analytical tools are becoming independent, mobile systems, such as chip-based laboratories.
Microtechnology is changing the performance and functionality of products and their manufacturing processes for good. Companies developing microtechnology and nanotechnology see themselves as partners for improving products and methods of production and making them more cost-effective. Dr Uwe Kleinkes, who represents an association of companies and institutes in the field of microtechnology, says: "By encouraging the use of microtechnology, these companies can help widen technical horizons, make product manufactur-ing more efficient and, ultimately, improve competitive ability.
