Hills Develops MEMS Manufacturing Method

West Melbourne, Fla.-based Hills Inc. has developed a method for producing micro electromechanical systems (MEMS). Using patented, micro-precision,multicomponent polymer extrusion, Hills has succeeded in producing a continuous MEMS strand of unlimited thickness at speeds of 200 meters per minute. The strand is then cut to the desired length to produce individual MEMS. According to the company, the process is suitable for the production of a wide variety of MEMS.Hills collaborated on the project with MCNC, a Research Triangle Park, N.C.-based research company. MCNC has patented the micro actuators, which have possible uses in nanotechnology and micromachinery applications, including medical and computing devices, as well as for radios and heart monitors in soldiers uniforms.
