As technology continues to trend towards a smaller and more powerful form factor, Miniaturization is poised to offer big benefits. Smaller products are ideal for precision movements thanks to low mechanical inertia, while low thermal expansion means they maintain their shape better at higher temperatures. And from an environmental standpoint, tiny products use less packaging and reduce transport costs when compared with larger products. Miniaturization is having an impact on several key industries including healthcare, defense, transportation, energy and computer electronics. So how do engineers keep getting more out of smaller and smaller products? Through collaborative and open innovation combined with cutting-edge processes and expertise from trusted manufacturers.
