Paper Abstract

In high volume manufacturing of optoelectronic devices in an industrial setting, automation is the key to success. The devices need to be fundamentally designed with automated manufacturing in mind, otherwise they will not render themselves to automated packaging processes. In addition, it is desirable that the manufacturing machines used to process and assemble the parts to be fully automated turnkey systems that can function with minimal operator interaction. However, other key elements that bring the machine and the product together are the toolings and the fixtures used to hold, manipulate and shape the products. This paper reviews the various issues and design considerations associated with machine tooling as applicable to high volume optoelectronic device production. Recent innovations in this field are discussed. In addition we present and analyze some examples of state-of-the-art machine toolings used in automated photonics assembly lines as well as automated test and measurement device platforms.
