In many photonic applications, an optical component (lens, mirror, etc.) is usually aligned to a beam path and mounted with a UV curing adhesive. Thereby, the parts often have to be placed relatively to each other.
By default, our portals cover four degrees of freedom: X, Y, Z (vertical) and theta (rotational). However, they can be expanded with various axes systems to cover the plane-parallelism between substrate and part, tilt angle of the part and other degrees of freedom, too.
Typical applications are the highly accurate assembly of VCSEL diodes on submounts, the handling and assembly of lenses and mirrors, the active and passive alignment or the assembly of an optic or opto-electronic transmitter-receiver system.
