YAVNE, Israel, January 13, 2016 − ORBOTECH LTD. (NASDAQ: ORBK) today announced that it has received an order for seven Emerald™ UV Laser Drilling systems from a leading Japanese manufacturer of ceramic-based electronic components and solutions. This customer, which produces a range of components used in applications including mobile phones, home appliances, automotive systems and healthcare devices, will utilize Orbotech’s Emerald systems to drill smaller, high-quality “via” openings in multi-layer ceramic-based IC substrates for next-generation applications.

Orbotech’s Emerald systems were selected for their ability to support mass production of ceramic-based IC substrates while maintaining throughput, accuracy and quality. Ceramic packaging is often used for very small form factor devices and to ensure RF performance support, which require production tools. The small size and the stringent performance requirements of ceramic designs demand a system that is able to drill extremely small via holes consistently and accurately.

“The worldwide demand for smaller and sleeker electronic devices with higher performance capacity continues to increase”commented Yair Alcobi, President, Orbotech Asia East. “Orbotech’s solutions enable manufacturers to develop next-generation electronic devices in smaller form factors, and offer exceedingly high accuracy with very attractive cost of ownership. This customer’s follow-on order for additional Emerald systems validate the effectiveness of this cutting edge solution and affirms our successful collaboration in providing optimal production tools to meet customers’ needs.”
