Task 5.2.1 deals with the technical feasibility of converging the state-of-the-art µ IM process with insert moulding to offer a wide range of multi-material µ components. The main objective of this deliverable is to summarize state-of-the-art information and to make the guideline needed for the convergence. In particular the following aspects are summed up in the deliverable: Need for converging insert moulding with µ-IM Objectives and expected outcome from task 5.2.1 State-of-the-art micro insert moulding and different scenario of micro insert moulding Challenges ahead of converging insert moulding with µ-IM Task 5.2.1 and COTECH demonstrator: guide line for 5PRC production based on the concept of Task 5.2.1 Information and results provided by this deliverable will be directly used for one of the COTECH demonstrators production which will call for convergent insert moulding with µ-IM. Besides this fact current deliverable will provide state-of-the-art information for technology convergence and ways to overcome challenges to use convergent technologies in industrial productions.
