The Role of Precision Motion in Fiber-Optic Manufacturing

In the manufacture of fiber-optic components, the use of semiautomatic and even manual processes has led to exceptionally high failure rates. This limits the application base and makes it virtually impossible to support high-volume production. The author explores the challenges of effective motion control on the modern component-alignment platform.
