The Microfactory Concept
Design, Construction, and Use of a Micro-assembly line, or Micro-manufacturing line offers interesting possibilities. Such a configuration would, in concept, be used to efficiently manufacture or assemble small parts into relatively small assemblies. These assemblies could be the end product or parts for some larger assembly.
Our view of a Microfactory does not include small manufacturing or assembly installations which might occupy a major portion of floor space in a small building. This would simply be a small manufacturing or assembly organization. Microfactory in concept is smaller than that, and would include a full start-to-finish process mounted on a single limited-footprint size board or panel. It will be portable, or at least semi-portable, for storage between manufacturing or assembly runs. A larger manufacturing organization might have several Microfactory units for specific functions, or a Microfactory might be the only equipment of a singular specialized operation. The Microfactory concept is well suited to one-person manufacturing shops, or work-at-home industry.
