In addition to the development of new technologies for the manufacturing of electromagnetic micromotors, the development and production of a micromotor was in the main focus of this Collaborative Research Center. This chapter presents an approach for the assembly of the variable reluctance microstep motors and the automation of the assembly. The results have been achieved by the interdisciplinary cooperation of different subprojects in the domains of design, manufacturing, and assembly technologies. After a short introduction on the importance of an automated assembly of the high-tech product microactuator and its components, the assembly concepts for the linear microactuator and the xy-microactuator are explained.
