Fab Capabilities

Specialized fabrication capabilities at the Advanced Technology and Manufacturing Institute enable rapid prototyping and development of microscale devices. Microchannel heat exchangers, microreactors and lab-on-chip devices are all examples of what we have designed, built and tested at the ATAMI. Our tooling and processes are geared specifically for laminated, or "sheet," architectures, where thin layers are patterned and stacked to create fluidic paths. We have processes for patterning, bonding and applying surface treatments to polymer and metal constructions.
