The fabrication, development and thrust testing of a microengineered three-beam suspended structure manufactured in nickel is described. The structure is intended to be used as a support for axial-flow microfans and microturbines. The purpose of the test device is to measure torsional friction drag as a function of thrust force in configurations where microfans have cup-shaped bearings. © 2006 The Institution of Engineering and Technology.
