Automated 2D and 3D measurements of fiber optic connectors

Automation of fiber optic assembly lines is a growing topic among patch cord manufacturers in order to improve their production yield and efficiency.

In this context, Data-Pixel launched a project to demonstrate the possibility to perform connector inspection and interferometry measurement using a robot.

The development of specific flanges and accessories coupled with robot equipped with cameras and sensors allows the operation of standard machines without human interaction.

The benefit of this system is its flexibility, the scope of application can be adapted to any production line setup.
