The AssemblyLine systems from ficonTEC are high-precision, alignment and assembly machine solutions. They are designed for automated manufacture (align-and-attach) of photonic components. They uniquely combine fast-active alignment and flexible attachment configurations, with a proven software control interface, enclosed in an industry-standard design.
Optional modules can be added to the base configuration to provide more features, and the high-end versions provide optical test modules, wafer processing capability, and automatic tool changing.
New, advanced in-line assembly systems from ficonTEC include a redesigned platform (800, 1200, and 1600). They are provided in specific in-line configurations for insertion into current production lines, and as a versatile and separate stand-alone production cell.
Additionally, they can be supplied as task-enhanced production segments that consist of different uniquely configured systems. It is feasible to visualize even complete production lines.
ficonTEC - Next-generation In-line Photonics Assembly & Test Systems
ficonTEC’s Process Control Master (PCM) is a process-driven, easy-to-use application software and control interface that is provided with complete multi-machine configurations and all turnkey systems.
PCM combines a smart UI with all machine vision, high-resolution positioning, and system management procedures required for dependable and repeatable running of active/passive alignment and attachment/bonding process hardware.
It is also already totally supported for automated electro-optical test and characterization operations. It can also manage and track single lines, and even sync parallel lines remotely.
