In this paper we present commercial, prototype, and self developed robots used in micro and desktop factory research implemented at the Department of Production Engineering of Tampere University of Technology (TUT / DPE). We will discuss and analyze our experiences and findings on designing and using robots in micro and desktop factories. Based on this analysis, we will identify possibilities and problems specific to micro and desktop scale robotics.
