Presentation of the MicroLean Lab to SIAMS+, INNOTEQ.DIGITAL and Italian entrepreneurs

As part of the SIAMS+ day, on 5th May 2021, Florian Serex, MicroLean Lab partnerships and development manager, will give a presentation entitled “From automation to autonomization”. He will then participate, with several manufacturers, in a round table on the theme “Automation and robotics”. The manufacture of a complex successful product requires the mastery, by specialized professionals, of many technological blocks, automated or not. The autonomization of these technological blocks allows a single person, with Read more…

From micromachines to connected, autonomous and reconfigurable micro-factories

The connected, autonomous and reconfigurable micro-factory currently being developed within the framework of the MicroLean Lab finds its origin in the micro5, a revolutionary 5-axis milling machine designed in 2015 at the HE-Arc Ingénierie. That year, as part of a product design course, three Industrial Design Engineering students had the idea of creating a micro-factory made up of different types of micromachines. One of them, Mathieu Steulet, who then worked as an assistant in the Read more…
