Abstract

The assembly process of a novel micro-scale co-ordinate measuring machine probe is presented. The process uses a semi-automated miniature robot. The initial tests used to develop the full process chain are described, and the full process chain is presented. Extensive future work is suggested to augment the presented process chain, which successfully produced four assembled probes, for more automation.
