The use of bonding as a joining technique is gaining more and more importance in micro manufacturing. There is a demand for systems which are capable of reliably dispensing tiny amounts of adhesive, especially under industrial conditions. By integrating sensors into the dispensing system or checking process results there is the possibility to become aware of the system specific problems and options of improvement. Methods and systems of investigation have been developed and realized at the Fraunhofer IPA.
