Welcome to Micro-FAST


The Micro-FAST project, funded under the European Commissions’ 7th Framework Programme, aims to develop a completely new sintering process and equipment for the industrial production of miniaturised components and tools, with a wide range of materials available (metallic alloys, composite, ceramics and polymers).

Micro-FAST is expected to give new options and process/equipment capability to manufacture micro/nano-components for MEMS and nanotechnology products, by developing a high-throughput, flexible and cost-efficient process by simultaneous micro-forming and electric-FAST-sintering, even with difficult-to-cut and difficult-to-form materials.
