MRSI Systems Delivered 3-Micron Die Bonder to AIM Photonics Academy’s Education and Practice Factory at MIT

North Billerica, MA, USA, March 20, 2017 — MRSI Systems, a leading provider of fully automated, high-speed, high-precision die bonding and epoxy dispensing systems, today announces the installation of its flagship MRSI-M3 Die Bonder in AIM Photonics Academy’s Education and Practice Factory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, MA, USA. This is the beginning of a great relationship that will lead to further collaboration in research and education of integrated photonics.

American Institute of Manufacturing (AIM) Photonics Academy built the Education and Practice Factory at MIT to enhance its education and training programs in integrated photonics manufacturing for the next generation of engineers. AIM Academy chose MRSI Systems as a partner because of its 33 years of experience as a leading solution supplier in this industry, its strategic vision, and its fast, accurate, and flexible systems that research and high-volume manufacturing of integrated photonics require. The MRSI-M3 will be an integral part of the Factory’s education and training program in chip packaging, board integration and assembly, and inspection and testing.

“MRSI Systems has been serving optoelectronics and microelectronics customers for the past thirty-three years. We are very pleased to partner with the AIM Photonics Academy’s Education and Practice Factory at AIM Academy, which has created a unique environment for engineering students and researchers to learn automation and to develop advanced prototypes at the same time,” said Mr. Michael Chalsen, President, MRSI Systems. “We appreciate the opportunity to contribute to its success and look forward to further collaboration with the Education and Practice Factory at MIT and with AIM Photonics.”

“We chose MRSI Systems and the MRSI-M3 because we value MRSI’s state-of-the-art automation technology, strong process knowledge, and its products’ flexibility for research and volume manufacturing,” said Brian W. Anthony, PhD, Associate Director, AIM Photonics Academy. “MRSI Systems offered the best package for our requirements.  We look forward to further collaboration with MRSI Systems in training programs and prototype development.”
