Optoelectronics

Know-how and tradition in optoelectronics

The optoelectronics applications are characterized by very strict precision requirements. During all the years in which Unitechnologies has been active in this market, the automation of these applications has indirectly enabled to build up a library of extremely successful sysmelec® solutions in terms of high precision:

  • Bonding cells for optoelectronics components such as miniature lasers
  • Active assembly and attachment cells for micro-optical components such as miniature lenses or arrays of micro-lenses
  • Assembly lines for optical fiber connectors
  • Welding of optoelectronics and micro-optical components for the telecommunications industry, as well as polymerization in the optoelectronics micro-assemblies

Due to the miniaturization of components, optoelectronics applications require innovative solutions in order to connect specific parts in clean environments. Unitechnologies has developed mta® soldering techniques perfectly adapted to these requirements. Laser soldering is a commonly used solution thanks to its precision, its speed and its advantage of being contact less with the parts to be soldered.

The mta® volumetric dispensing is a key technique in the optoelectronics domain.  It allows to precisely dispense mono or two-component products such as sealing beads or part overmoulding. Unitechnologies has a wide experience in dispensing several types of products according to the specific requirements. The mta® dispensers are assembled in production equipment allowing to reach a very high production output.
