Optical imaging systems used in medical devices need to deliver perfect images. For example, the multi-chip prism assembly produced by Berliner Glas, which is part of, among other things, endoscopes and dental cameras, has the task to split the light into its spectral components, record a high-quality image via special sensors and assemble it electronically. With continuously increasing resolution, from HD over 4k to 8k, the requirements for a pixel- precise adjustment of the sensors increase to the same extent.
Precision of up to 200 nm
To ensure high-precision positioning and alignment of electro-optical components Berliner Glas has created a versatile precision alignment platform for submicron positioning. This platform can be used to simultaneously align electro-optical components such as image sensors, in six degrees of freedom with a precision of up to 200 nm each, and fix them permanently to this accuracy.
Versatile precision alignment platform up to 200 nm
- Fast customization – short reaction times
- Reliable precision
- Shorter time-to-market
- Competitive prices on a global market
These advantages make the system exceptionally well suited for cost-effective and rapid prototyping with volume production precision and ideal for small and medium-scale unit production typical for medical technology, averaging between 100 and 1,000 pieces per year.
