Take a look at the cellphone over the years – camera lenses have gotten smaller, features have exploded, but the size of the devices has stayed relatively the same. This is only possible by making the parts that enable this technology smaller, and this move for miniaturization has become a trend across industries. From the cell phones in our pockets to surgical devices used for minimally invasive procedures, engineers and scientists are designing products that are smaller and smaller. And with the final products shrinking, it means that the inner workings of the device, plus the pieces that hold everything together, must be made in micro dimensions too.
