Paper Abstract

'The step from micro-technology to nano-technology requires more than a reduction of size by a factor of a thousand. If you want to move precisely in the nano-world, you don’t succeed by perfecting proven techniques.' Handelsblatt. This quotation shows a new approach to Nanotechnology that is somehow unusual. Exactly this new approach is realised in a new system of Nanorobotics. It allows the development of a production system that is by orders more precise than classical production lines. Moreover, it includes the adhesive bonding technology which oftentimes is the preferred joining technology on this scale. The described system is the result of an industrial demand to solve the actual problems of micro production technology.
