Hans Nørgaard Hansen’s main research area is micro manufacturing. This includes the entire value chain from design of micro mechanical systems over manufacturing process chains to quality assurance and metrology. Processes included are for example tooling technologies for micro injection moulding and micro metal forming, mass production methods (micro injection moulding and micro metal forming) and material removal processes (micro machining, micro EDM, micro laser machining). The integration of single processes into coherent process chains and production systems including the necessary quality assurance activities is the ultimate goal of the research. Precision additive manufacturing has been added as a core research area in 2008 and focuses on materials processing using additive technologies with a focus on precision and quality aspects of multi-material additive manufacturing.
