EMINT AND IBS COORDINATE MEETING ON ADVANCED THERMAL CONTROL

In association with the EMINT (Electro, micro and Nano Technologies) group of the German Engineering Association VDMA, IBS Innovation Director Dr Theresa Burke has coordinated a meeting on Advanced Thermal Control.

In the development of precision systems and machines, thermal effects can play a dominant role. As accuracy, productivity and optimisation demands increase, the challenge to further improve performance from the perspective of improved thermal control is of growing importance to various markets, including printing, medical systems, aerospace, automotive and semiconductor manufacturing systems.

In 2015 a consortium has been formed to advance the theoretical and applied approaches to design, simulation, measurement and compensation techniques essential for the development of precision modules/systems subject to internal or external thermal loads. The focus is on technical strategies and solutions to enable the next generation of industry capability. This meeting will provide an update on key themes addressed by the consortium.
