Abstract

The paper presents a process chain for the shaping of polymeric tubular micro-components for the volume production as well as presents a concept for the integration of the developed processes and modular machines onto a platform to form a "POLYTUBES Micro-Factory", being resulting from the European FP7 POLYTUBES project which aimed at the development of new process capabilities and equipment for the shaping of polymeric micro-tubes into functional micro- components.
