New super adhesive for microrobots

An article on Micro manufacturing website highlights the work of a Carnegie Mellon University professor who is developing applications for a new adhesive based on the gecko lizard's unique ability to attach itself and manoeuvre on virtually any surface--smooth, coarse, vertical or horizontal.

Microparts present unique measuring challenges

There are several challenges that can arise when you start the process of measuring micro- and meso-scale parts. Some important factors to consider—before you begin measuring parts—are part handling, cleaning and fixturing.
