HINMICO special session at 4M/IWMF conference 2016

The main conference programme takes place from 13th - 15th September 2016 at the Technical University of Denmark in Lyngby.

FoF Impact Workshop 14-15 April and the EFFRA Innovation Portal

HINMICO, along with projects finishing in 2015 or later, have received from the European Commission an invitation to this year’s FoF Impact Workshop in Brussels.

In addition to the Impact Workshop, EFFRA requets contributions to their innovation Portal and informs about new developments ( newsletter, other services...) focused on FoF projects.

HINMICO project: High througput integrated technologies for multimaterial functional Micro Components


This project has received funding from the European Community''s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7-2013-NMP-ICT-FOF) under project reference no 609110.

The objective of the HINMICO project is the development and optimization of manufacturing processes for the mass production of multi-material functional miniaturised components by the integration of high-throughput replication (over-moulding/in-mould assembly/packaging ) processes including high precision handling and on-line monitoring and product on-line quality control technologies , and back-end processes, for cost effective manufacturing of high added value products for applications within health, communications, audio equipment and automotive (non-silicon microsystems and micro/nano-structured components). The aim is to reduce manufacturing costs up to 40%. Thus, the HINMICO project final outcome will enable to produce high quality multi-material micro-components, with the possibility of additional, functionalities, through more integrated, efficient and cheaper process chains. Also, as it is explained later in the Implementation section, is intended that the results of the project, will contribute to some of the existing European Standards. Read More.
