SAN FRANCISCO--(Automation Engineering Incorporated (AEi), a global supplier of precision automation systems, demonstrates how its PMAT™ (Photonics Module Align, Assembly, and Test) flexible automation platform can improve product development and manufacturing ramp-up to speed time to market for new products at SPIE Photonics West. AEi developed PMAT to support customers’ alignment, testing and assembly of precision photonic or optoelectronic packages. Leading manufacturers use PMAT as a common platform for both new product development and full-scale production deployment. PMAT can easily cut new product and process development time in half, enabling a faster transfer of these processes to production by using the same fixturing and control software, and has the flexibility to manufacture a wider range of products at reduced cycle time compared to less capable manufacturing stations and equipment.

“We’ve seen a real need in the marketplace for highly capable and flexible automation platforms that enable our customers to quickly develop new precision optoelectronic products and then scale up rapidly to full production to meet ever shortening market windows. PMAT answers that need”
According to AEi Chief Technology Officer, Andre By, “Our customers frequently use a PMAT station as a development tool to quickly create new products and develop processes for new features, increased performance and lower cost. They can then transfer the control sequence logic and fixturing used in development to additional PMAT stations for production ramp up – even if mass production is at any number of facilities across the globe.
“We’ve seen a real need in the marketplace for highly capable and flexible automation platforms that enable our customers to quickly develop new precision optoelectronic products and then scale up rapidly to full production to meet ever shortening market windows. PMAT answers that need,” concluded By.
