ProCam® Align Smart – Active Alignment, Assembly and Testing of Camera Modules for R&D Applications and Low to Mid Volume Production

Exchange unit for the production of one type of camera module

With ProCam® Align Smart, TRIOPTICS offers a stand-alone solution for the highest optical performance in camera module production by using active alignment.

The manufacturing process starts with automated glue dispensing, followed by the alignment of the optics to the sensor or vice versa. Alignment includes precise adjustments for translation, tilt, focus and rotation to allow for optimal image quality. The process finishes with the automated curing process.

By using exchangeable assembly jigs, the ProCam® Align Smart features the possibility of manufacturing multiple camera module types within one instrument. These customized jigs allow an easy change-over procedure between the assemblies of different types of camera modules.
