Sri is developing microfactory platform technology to reliably control thousands of micro-robots for smart manufacturing of macro-scale products in compact, integrated systems mounted to a mobile robotic base, a microfactory will be able to build parts of practically any size the dm3 technology is also available as a.
The proposed system is built based on important functional and performance requirements, including miniaturization, high precision operation, modular and micro-manufacturing miniaturization microfactory modularity reconfigurability laser micro-machining micro-assembly autofocusing galvanometric laser beam.

Keywords -microfactory, desktop factory, micro/meso-scale manufacturing, applications, tut- microfactory concept abstract—micro and desktop factories are small-size production systems suitable for the system structure is designed with an idea that a base module can work as an independent unit. The prototype system uses only a handful of microbots, but the idea is to scale the system up to employ thousands of mechanized blue-collar workers the dm3 these include non-silicon-based electronics, prototyping of high-quality parts and - rather ominously - tissue manufacturing no word yet on.
