Up to now, collimators have been generally produced by handwork and only a few companies have fabricated by semi-automatic system. Under this situation, automatic system for assembly of optical collimators has risen as the most essential technology in the development of optical communication components. In this study, it was projected to develop optical collimator with high-efficiency, and we manufactured it with a GRIN rod lens using automatic system. And then we carried out a performance test through a comparison of collimators made by automatic system and handwork system with angle alignment, beam size. Also we compared a common product with an auto-manufactured sample. As a result, it brought reduction of the tact time, improvement of efficiency and productivity of optical collimators. Therefore, it was found that automatic system was indispensable for commercialization of optical collimators with high-capacity.
