Assembly processes of micro-systems that meet the requirements of a mass production environment must feature automated handling and component alignment functions. Based on many years of experience in the development and application of scaled-up technology solutions for customers in the manufacturing industry, the Fraunhofer IPT is capable of adapting existing micro-assembly components as well as self-developed concepts to design efficient solutions for automated assembly lines.
Automated assembly facilities for medium-sized and large production volumes
We design customized production facilities for medium-sized and large quantities of various miniaturized laser systems, cameras and optical sensors, providing technologies, components and turnkey solutions for high-precision automated micro-assembly processes. The Fraunhofer IPT technologies are distributed through our business partners.
Modular construction kit for high-precision assembly and micro-assembly processes
For the automation of the assembly process, we are using a modular micro-assembly platform that features standard modules and software elements and enables sensor-based process management and networking operations within an Industrie 4.0 environment. Standard modules such as the C6 micro-manipulator plus expandable user interfaces allows us to construct customized yet cost-effective assembly facilities.
On request, we can subject plans of automating existing assembly systems to feasibility checks and develop any components or industrial processes that may be required. In close cooperation with our research and distribution partners, we create sustainable, high-quality service solutions that meet all requirements of equipment safety, radiation protection and CE certification.
