Advanced Alignment and Gluing Station for Production and Process Development

The entire process of alignment, resin dispensing and curing runs fully automated.

NanoGlue serves as the ideal assembly station for opto-electronic components, such as photonics circuits,waveguides, diode lasers and photodiodes as well as optical components, modulators and chips. It provides active alignment in all six degrees of freedom followed by epoxy gluing with UV curing.

Cost-efficient production

NanoGlue works fast and efficient. The optional OptoSpin brings the alignment time in the plane down to 1 second. This is the pre-requisite for high volume and cost-efficient production.

Benefits of NanoGlue

  • Extremely fast alignment times providing high throughput
  • Reliable positioning with best coupling efficiency
  • Accurate gluing with minimum shift
  • Harmonic transition form manual to automated production
  • Large variety of loading concepts
  • Broad spectrum of measurement instrumentation

Powerful Machine Vision shortens Process Time

The powerful machine vision monitors the loading processes and allows for the optimum pre-alignment of the devices to be assembled. The electrical contacting is automated.

High Precision Alignment

A precision in the nanometer regime and a high dynamic range guarantee reliable and high resolution positioning procedures. The automated alignment algorithms optimize the position in short time while the measurement values are assigned to each product.

The feedback sensors include optical power measurement (in the visible, near and mid infrared spectrum), polarization measurement, beam profiling, optical spectrum analzers, wave meters and MTF values.

The configuration of NanoGlue is customized
depending on the assembly requirements.

Automated Resin Dispensing and Curing

Dispensers apply the resin as required. Small volumes of down to 5 nl will be dispensed as accurately as larger volumes in the ml regime. During the UV curing process, the motion system can compensate the unavoidable shrinkage of the resin.

When NanoGlue works as a single station, the devices will be loaded with trays which carry one or several sets of components. The quick release clamping reduces the loading time to the minimum.

Individual integration
in your production lines

For a higher degree of automation, NanoGlue will be integrated into production lines. In this case, belts or robots bring the parts into the working position. Alternatively, feeders will be used for loading (e. g. JEDEC tray feeders). Single stations can be upgraded in the future.
