SCALAB - Scalable Automation for Emerging Lab Production : Final Report of the MNT-ERA.net Research Project "SCALAB"
In the context of increasing competitive pressure in the production of complex andhighly integrated microsystems, the SCALAB project aimed at the development ofnovel solutions for the automation of assembly processes with highest demands onaccuracy. The solutions support the development and optimization of automated processesduring prototype production as well as an easy transfer and scaling up for seriesproduction. By providing methods to successively increase the degree of automation,SCALAB tries to pave the way for a fully automated assembly of miniaturized opticalsystems.As a scenario for demonstration, the project has applied desktop robots for lab environmentsto develop prototype processes for the automated assembly of miniaturizedlaser systems. Process experiments validated the viability of the underlying concept.On the desktop station it was possible to successfully implement and investigate theautomated:- Camera-guided pick and place of micro optics- Passive alignment of pump optics- Active alignment of resonator mirrorsTogether with suitable bonding technologies, these three process types allow for afully automated assembly of basic diode-pumped laser systems.show more
