Ramp-Up Product Development to Volume Production with AEi's Flexible Automation Platform, PMAT(TM)
SAN FRANCISCO - Automation Engineering Incorporated (AEi), a global supplier of high precision automation systems, demonstrates how its PMAT(TM) (Photonics Module Align, Assembly, and Test) flexible automation platform speeds 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 easily cuts 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 twice the cycle time compared to less automated stations. Learn more about PMAT in booth 5136 at the SPIE Photonics West Exhibition, January 26 - 28, The Moscone Center, San Francisco, California, USA.
According to AEi Chief Operating Officer Justin Roe, "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 transfer the control sequence logic and fixturing used in development across additional PMAT stations for production ramp up - even if production is in another facility on the other side of the world.
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 Roe.
AEi is a leading supplier of high-precision, flexible automation systems across the optoelectronics, medical devices, consumer products, mobile phones, aerospace & defense, and other worldwide markets. AEi provides comprehensive design for manufacturing, process development, and pre-production build services, in addition to complete turnkey automated manufacturing stations and lines.
