During ECOC 2021, nanosystec demonstrates two set-ups for high-precision alignment and assembly.
VersaHybrid is the ideal solution for replacing tedious manual assembly procedures. Tailored to the specific assembly task, the station works with a semi or fully automated process placing and joining components with micron precision. Joining methods include epoxy gluing and UV curing, thermal curing, laser soldering and laser welding. Even cutting has been implemented. Several process steps with different joining technologies can be combined in one station. Typical applications are the manufacturing of complex optical assemblies, such as optical switches, external cavity lasers and many more.
VersaSolder-Blue works with blue light for melting the solder material. With an integrated temperature measurement and closed-loop control, a stable selective laser soldering process is guaranteed. Depending on the applicaton, other wavelengths in the near infrared can be chosen, especially for active alignment with nanometer precision.
