Assembly and TestingAssembly

Assembly, Integration and TestingService

The assembly, integration & test (AIT) phase is essential. It comprises the assembly of components before the system is aligned, tested, and qualified.

Integration is the penultimate moment in any project, entailing the assembly of all components prior to aligning, testing, and qualifying the system. At Micromatics, we deploy the resources needed to handle micro to macro instruments, check their dimensions, and test it by every possible way as per customer requirements and we provide solutions as well.

Our AIT department is mainly responsible for:

Assembly, integration and testing of optical systems
Environmental qualification of systems
Packing and delivering optical systems
System installation on site
Maintenance and calibration

Assembly, Integration

The integration team is in charge of assembling opto-mechanical, electro-mechanical, systems, and subsystems, as well as performing metal-metal and glass-metal bonding operations.

They also take charge of alignment and testing, to make sure that the system meets all customer specifications, especially for optical quality and interfaces.

Depending on customer needs, this team also takes charge of operating special tools, integrating command-control functions and wiring the motors needed to operate the system.

The department is also in charge of packing the system, to ensure trouble-free shipping to our customers.

Clean Rooms

Micromatics has about 1,000 square meters of controlled-atmosphere assembly areas. These areas limit the concentration of dust particles (up to Class IS0 5 for space projects in particular), enabling us to assemble and test systems under optimized cleanliness conditions.

Separated from the production areas, the integration building is designed and built to offer a high degree of stability, and thus guarantee the accuracy of optical measurements.

Testing & Qualification

Each system undergoes an internal acceptance test, possibly followed by a customer acceptance test in the plant. All specifications are checked using standard instruments or special test benches. Micromatics naturally deploys a full range of test instruments and systems (CMM, self-collimating viewfinder, MMT, 3D arms and measurement column, image spot measurement bench, collimators, Rockwell Hardness Tester, Salt Spray Tester, Optical Profile Projectors, Roughness Testers, Gauges, and interferometers), Spectroscopy, along with extensive environmental qualification systems:
