Materials play an important role in manufactured goods. Materials must possess both acceptable properties for their intended applications and a suitable ability to be manufactured. These criteria hold true for micromanufacturing, in which parts have overall dimensions of less than 1 mm. This chapter begins by reviewing materials usage in Asian and European research in micromanufacturing, categorized by manufacturing process. Following that, specific treatment is given to materials factors that are unique to micromanufacturing.
