Dymax, a manufacturer of rapid light-curing materials and equipment, has published a new white paper that describes the benefits of using light-curable adhesives for active alignment of camera modules, optical components, and LiDAR assemblies in automotive applications.
Authored by Dr. Dave Dworak, the “Dymax Active Alignment Adhesives and Their Use in LiDAR and Optical Assemblies,” white paper discusses the differences between passive alignment and active alignment, the importance of accurate positioning of components, and the cost benefits associated with the use of light-curable materials in the assembly process.
Additionally, the paper features detailed information on the physical and mechanical properties of Dymax active alignment adhesives, as well as the results of their compression shear strength compared to leading market products on a variety of substrates.
The adhesives offer manufacturers many additional benefits such as rapid, “on-demand” cure with UV/LED light, heat cure for shadow areas, and very low shrinkage, which is critical to achieving optimal component alignment.
Read about Dymax’s new line of light-curable adhesives that feature a broad range of technical attributes for successful camera module and optical component assembly, including:
- Rapid cure times
- Excellent adhesion
- Low shrinkage
- Low moisture absorption
- Low outgassing
- High glass-transition temperature
