Small Processing Machinery Effectiveness in Micropart Processing and Factory Construction with Desktop Production Equipment
Takashimasangyo Co., Ltd., 5695-6 Kanazawa, Chino, Nagano 391-0012, Japan
The effects of inertia on production facilities due to working-tool mass and gravity must be minimized for microprocessing. Compact production facilities are expected to effectively solve this problem. Examples of effective facilities include in-house desktop production platforms and high-performance factories consisting of compact production equipment.
