The production space in our new building is being filled more and more! Some of the VIGO Photonics employees are already working in the new building. Changes are clearly visible. Office spaces, conference rooms, changing rooms and social rooms have already been equipped. It is more complicated to equip the most important part of the new building – the production hall. Adaptation of workplace involves planning them so work there is as efficient and comfortable as possible. Every day new equipment arrives in the hall, necessary to achieve the ambitious goals of our company!
As of today, the hall’s equipment is:
- 115 assembly stations with basic equipment, on which the installation of equipment dedicated to measurement of detector parameters – 10 positions, for electronic assembly – 20 positions and for technical acceptance – 5 positions.
- 6 positions for processing lenses (another 10 stations are being installed), on which a pilot series of infrared detectors with an immersion lens type PCI and PVI has already been produced.
- vacuum and nitrogen encapsulation automatic station, on which the first test series of vacuum encapsulated detectors were made.
- automatic flip-chip device – enabling automatic connection of the detector structure to the readout system or a carrier with contact fields.
In accordance with the strategy assumptions, the new plant will enable effective production of long series of detectors and a tenfold increase in the production volume (up to 100,000 detectors annually!). The process of equipping and preparing the production hall for work will be completed probably in the second half of August.
