Optical Alignment Machine Auto-Align System & Optic waveguide alignment and packaging

Low-cost, Compact, High Precision and Maneuverable Manual-Alignment Machine for PLC Pigtailing

The Sunma instrument company develops a new generation of manual and auto aligner for planar lightwavecircuit(PLC)manufacturing. This product line features cost effective, high precision motion control capability with a compact mechanical design.
High quality components are used to assemble the system to guarantee high precision and repetitive motion applications.
The precision of linear motion motion (Translational) X, Y, Z and rotationl motion (Rotational)Pitch, Yaw, the Roll is 0.01 micron and 0.02 degree respectively.
All the machinical handlers are our own proprietary designs and made of high quality stainless steal to achieve motion and temperature difference stability.
Handlers for fiber coupled array are equiped with touch sensors for accurate spacing control.
Versatile motion control software is both user friendly and powerful.Optical Alignment Machine
Its modular design makes system upgrade and modification very simple. Moreover, alignment procedure customerization is made possible by the "workflow editor". Hence, users only just need to add and subtract the preinstalled functions and input the corresponding parameters to establish a particular alignment process.
