Axsun’s miniaturized optical devices are assembled and aligned into high performance optical engines on our flexible and scalable automated assembly line. The assembly process begins with precision mounting of multiple optical elements.
- Using a vision recognition system, individual photonic devices or assemblies are placed and hard soldered to an optical bench with state of the art precision.
- For devices requiring sub micron alignment tolerances, a subsequent step of automated active alignment is used. Axsun’s proprietary active alignment robot sequentially locates each device and adjusts its micro-alignment structure to precisely, and permanently set its position.
These key steps in Axsun’s automated assembly process are software reconfigurable, giving the Axsun packaging platform unprecedented flexibility and scalability.
