In the fields of micro system technology, medical engineering and biotechnology the use of components with filigree structures becomes an increasingly issue. The manufacturing of such components is realized by e.g. micro milling tools. The micro end mills have been produced individually and therefore incur higher manufacturing costs. The batch production is an approach to increase cost-efficiency of the micro milling processes by simultaneous manufacturing of several tools. In this paper a new manufacturing method of silicon carbide (SiC) micro end milling tools is presented and the performance is investigated. The experiments will show which aspects by the manufacturing process have to be considered to achieve a higher performance of the tools.

Repairing technologies enable a huge economical potential, especially in high-technology sectors like the aerospace industry with complex capital goods. Companies in these industries retain their knowledge concerning repair technologies, in order to maintain the advantage over their competitors. Thus, the quantity of publications dealing with technological challenges and scientific basics for repairing are limited. The main purpose of this literature review is to collect published information on common technologies regarding the regeneration of turbine blades to extract scientific basics and to present challenges that are currently unattended. The attention of this paper is focused particularly on the machining process. Due to the variety of damages on engine blades, the general process chain has to be adapted partly or in whole for each component. In the second part of this paper, a general process chain for regeneration is presented, including a classification of repair methods. The main interest of the third part addresses the recontouring, which is the final shape cutting of repaired engine blades. At this point, the previous research and occurring challenges are pointed out in two stages related to the machining process—before and during machining. In the last part, the achievable workpiece quality after machining is discussed. © 2015 Springer-Verlag London
