ABSTRACT
The article reports that miniaturisation, one of the dominant trends in contemporary manufacturing, is perhaps at its most striking in the area of medical device technology. As medical techniques have developed, the need for finer and smaller structures has accelerated to such an extent that a whole new industry has evolved, employing levels of accuracy and quality control never previously dreamed of. This has come about largely thanks to recent improvements in computers, machining centres, moulding machines and vision inspection systems.
