Abstract
Laser assembly can be a tedious task if performed manually. Especially if miniaturization of the laser is desired, robot-based assembly can greatly improve quality, performance and throughput, while self-optimization is regarded as a strategy to reduce planning efforts and increase the robustness of the assembly. An automated laser assembly system has been developed together with a concept to increase the autonomy through a multi-agent system control structure. The multi-agent system allows assembly steps like sequence planning, measurement of components and deviations, selection of components, soldering elements onto a carrier plate and active resonator alignment to be handled by the system itself and enables the assembly system to uniquely plan every laser system and execute its assembly within a flexible robot-based assembly cell.
