Automation Engineering Incorporated (AEi), a global supplier of high-precision, flexible automation systems (http://www.aeiboston.com/precision_automation.htm), developed an enhanced version of its CMAT (Camera Module Align, Assembly & Test) manufacturing system for four different European automotive manufacturers. The CMAT automation system (http://www.aeiboston.com/download/AEi_CMAT.pdf), which utilizes machine vision, will be both a development and high volume production tool for multi-camera vehicle systems used in luxury automobiles.

    According to AEi Chief Technology Officer Andre By, "We've enhanced our camera module align, assembly and test station to support a wider range of camera types and styles. We've also augmented its available 5-degree of freedom alignment stages to support even higher precision requirements with our advanced alignment algorithms (http://www.aeiboston.com/flexauto.htm), plus extended our set of available options including automated dispense, fully automated material handling, automated align and test targets positioning, laser marking, and an even more comprehensive suite of configurable test functions. This enables our customers to use either semi-automated or fully-automated precision alignment, attach and test to produce high-quality sophisticated cameras at reduced cost versus traditional manual and automated manufacturing methods," concluded By.

The CMAT flexible automation system uses machine vision to align a lens assembly in X, Y, Z and across the corners in pitch and roll, achieving an even focus across its focal plane. The CMAT station uses this approach to achieve camera module alignment, assembly and test at production rates that are 500 to 1000 percent faster than using manual methods.
