Development and experimental validation of an analytical model to predict the demoulding force in hot embossing
Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering
During the demoulding stage of the hot embossing process, the force required to separate a polymer part from the mould should be minimized to avoid the generation of structural defects for the produced micro structures. However, the demoulding force is dependent on a number of process factors, which include the material properties, the demoulding temperature, the polymer pressure history and the design of the mould structures. In particular, these factors affect the chemical, physical anddoi:10.1088/0960-1317/24/5/055007 fatcat:gtozv3gpkngmjbggffziackk7a
