Abstract

"The last decade has witnessed a strong technological thrust for manufacturing of micro-components. Polymers and ceramics have been replicated using micromolds, and are commercially used to produce microcomponets in large numbers. On the other hand, for demanding microsystems applicatiions, metals are an attractive choice, for their mechanical and wear properties. Microforming of superlastic alloys has been investigated with good success. This thesis presents a novel technique of microforming using friction stir technology and superplastic materials science."--Abstract, page iii.
