Speaking at the Nano Conference in St. Gallen, Switzerland in September 2003, Dr. Ivano Beltrami, Head of Research at Agie SA in Losone, noted that electrical discharge machining (EDM) can be used to manufacture very small parts with precision in the <1µm range.
But as Dr. Beltrami
observes, moving in the nano dimension requires new solutions.Figure 2 shows an existing prototype ultra-high-precision EDM machine with resolution on each axis of 5 nm.The machine's three axes are based on "parallel kinematics structure articulated with very rigid flexible bearings without friction and without backlash," Dr. Beltrami
