WEBINAR: Our breakthrough in photonics assembly speed

Tue, June 9th, 2020 17:00h

Webinar: Assembly and Packaging of Photonic Integrated Circuits, A Modular Concept Towards a Fully Automated Process

Right now, we should be looking back at a successful PIC Conference, where we could’ve shown off our groundbreaking innovation in photonics. Unfortunately, COVID-19 is keeping us all safely indoors. For now, we would like to take the opportunity to digitally share the 'big reveal' with you.


We proudly present to you: The Photonic Packaging Platform

We are proud of the outcome of our recent collaboration and are eager to present you the Photonic Packaging Platform. It delivers a breakthrough in photonics assembly speed. And, with the current explosive need of extra bandwidth due to people being cooped up in their homes because of the coronavirus, this machine comes at just the right time. That’s why Tegema and PI will be giving an introduction to this modular machine platform during a webinar!



On June 9th at 5PM, Angel Business Communications is hosting an interactive webinar in which Sander Dorrestein from CITC, Arno Thoer from Tegema, and Scott Jordan from PI, will talk about the new Photonic Packaging Platform.

The Photonic Packaging Platform is the result of a fruitful partnership between PI Benelux and Tegema, where 5 decades of photonics alignment experience and nearly 45 years of high-tech machine building experience came together.

This automatic assembly machine is the solution that solves the missing link in the photonics assembly chain. It enables you to align and bond two optical components with ultra-high precision. It promises a cycle time up to ten times shorter than that of current solutions, and it is modular, which means it can meet requirements of multiple optical applications.



  • Sander Dorrestein is a Senior Manufacturing process engineer at CITC in The Netherlands.

  • Scott Jordan is head of photonics for PI and a PI Fellow who operates from the USA.

  • Arno Thoer is a project solutions director in technology and engineering at Tegema, The Netherlands.
