Custom solution deployed for manufacturer of semiconductor laser devices

Photonics Automation Specialties has just commissioned a fully automated 20 kW life test rack for a leading manufacturer of diode laser devices. The custom system is fully integrated into the manufacturer’s production line, and operates devices in both pulsed and CW modes. Features also include monitoring of heat dissipation, device current, fiber boot temperature, voltage, and optical power.

Jerry Knight-Rubino, President of Photonics Automation Specialties states “We are pleased and excited to commission this state-of-the-art system in collaboration with our client. The system significantly reduces their touch-time, and completely automates the collection and reporting of data in a highly reliable platform.”

The company also offers characterization stations for both laser and LED devices, including manufacturers as well as device integrators wishing to verify conformance to specification. According to Knight-Rubino, “with the ever-increasing requirement for compliance data and manufacturing process control, we continue to see strong demand for integrated test solutions such as this.” Photonics Automation Specialists has several similar programs underway, each with highly custom / specialized functionality.

Based in Tucson, Arizona, and leveraging more than 20 years of expertise, Photonics Automation Specialties provides manufactures and integrators of laser and LED components with precise, robust and reliable solutions for device test, burn-in and characterization. We stand behind each and every solution we manufacture with an industry-leading warranty and unparalleled service and technical support.
