Pick-and-place solution for miniature components

Pick-and-place solution for miniature components

Challenge


Medical equipment is subject to ultra stringent quality criteria; an accepted requirement for the protection of patients.  Modern medical devices are now employing electrical and optical components, requiring the precise handling and integration of such components in often very small assemblies. How do you manipulate and assemble miniature components without damage and with high yield?

Solution


AIworx has developed a pick-and-place solution featuring integrated machine vision algorithms for locating and inspecting sub-millimeter optical components.

Results


The assembly automation system provides:

  • Improved assembly yield
  • Autonomous operation
  • Recording and archiving of component characterization data for device traceability
