In parallel to this work, a fiber assembly set-up has been developed that performs automated connectorization of the same fiber ribbon. Following machine vision capture of the individual fibers, the insertion process can be smoothly and reliably completed, noting that the difference in diameter between the ferrules and the fibers is only 1µm.
ficonTEC’s solutions are realized as cutting-edge, semi- or fully-automated production systems for photonic devices, regardless of the device material and of the specific application the device is targeting. Our modular system architecture is additionally scalable, so that exploratory, proof-of-process assembly as well as high-volume assembly and test requirements are all addressable – and anything in between.
UPDATE: This topic has been covered in our webinar on Fiber Assembly, where we also present a concept for a complete system capable of the entire fiber ribbon production workflow. You can register for our webinars (live and view-on-demand) using the ‘Register’ button below.
