2. PFC - Position Freezing Carrier
A world novelty and setting a new standard in active alignment is a feature that we offer as an option to the AA-workstation: our Position Freezing Carrier.
A major challenge in active alignment is the time it takes to bond the components. During the bonding process, specifically when glues need to cure (e.g. using UV light), the active alignment system is idle, and this is often the most time-consuming step in the production process!
- IMS has developed a new system ‘Position Freezing Carrier (PFC)
- Dividing alignment and fixation (gluing) over separate stations
The IMS Position Freezing Carrier, however, can separate the fixation from the alignment and allows you to take these two steps in parallel.
