Lens assembly and alignment in one
CMAT-S is an all-in-one system for assembling and dynamically aligning lenses in ADAS cameras. With this machine, ASMPT AEi introduces a powerful implementation of its patented Continuous Sweep Alignment process, which is significantly improving the throughput of the system without compromising on the quality of cameras installed in advanced driver assistance systems. The main advantage of the CMAT-S is its ability to reduce the process cycle time by 50 percent in the same footprint.
The CMAT-S aligns lenses for ADAS cameras with the unprecedented speed of only ten seconds and below per camera. It employs a proprietary and patented algorithm for its active alignments. Unlike traditional systems that rely on static positioning during image acquisition, the CMAT-S takes advantage of the continuous movement of the target object during the imaging process. This dynamic approach increases the precision and speed of the alignment process. The result is an uniform focus across the entire field of view. To quickly lock the aligned lens in position, the machine is equipped with an innovative UV curing system with partial curing times of as little as one second for certain camera modules.
“Our innovations are primarily aimed at the large-scale production of cameras in automobiles, a market segment that is rapidly growing with the increasing introduction of advanced driver assistance systems. Our efforts underscore our unwavering commitment to efficiency and excellence in automotive camera manufacturing,” says Jean-Marc Peallat, General Manager at ASMPT AEi.
