EXFO Introduces NanoRobot System
QUEBEC CITY -- EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO, TSE: EXF) announced today the introduction of the NanoRobot Developer System, a photonics alignment system configured for component development. The newest addition to EXFO’s NanoRobot line enables manufacturers of complex photonics components to develop products with the same technology used during production for assembly and alignment. Users can go from product development to full manufacturing using the same software routines and multiple hardware configurations. This minimizes time to volume, a critical factor for component manufacturers. The Developer System consists of NanoRobot hardware, powerful nanoalignment software and a vision system. The NanoRobot hardware incorporates patented Inchworm® motor technology to provide unprecedented nanoalignment performance. The software is the most advanced in the industry for nanoalignment and features a library of script-based routines that are ready to use from the start. The vision system includes an adjustable mounting system. Test and measurement capabilities are easily added from EXFO’s broad range of high-performance products. “The new NanoRobot Developer System allows manufacturers of photonics components to reduce their costs because they can quickly move from high-end R&D to high-volume manufacturing with the same automated solution,” said David Farrell, President of Burleigh Instruments, a wholly owned subsidiary of EXFO. “Our NanoRobot Developer System offers the superior performance component manufacturers expect from EXFO nanoalignment products and simplifies transfer of motion, software and vision technology from the lab to the manufacturing floor."
