YAVNE, ISRAEL, September 6, 2017 Orbotech Ltd., a leading global supplier of yield-enhancing and process-enabling solutions for the manufacture of electronics products, announced today that Orbotech’s end-to-end automated optical inspection (AOI) solutions have been selected by YUNGU (Gu’an) Technology Co., LTD for its new flexible OLED Gen 6 fab. The project execution is supported by Visionox, a Chinese flat panel display (FPD) manufacturer. The deal includes a large number of Orbotech AOI systems for TFT (thin-film transistor) Array and OLED-related layers for inspection and classification. The new Gen 6 fab is located in Gu’an Hebei, China. Delivery is expected at the beginning of 2018.

 
Among the solutions provided is the Orbotech Quantum™ Flex series, which will resolve challenges that manufacturers typically face with OLED flexible display processes. The production process required for flexible OLED panels is more sophisticated and complex than the process required for LCD panel manufacturing. This solution simultaneously inspects each panel multiple times in the same scan using different modalities, such as various light wave lengths and alternative angles. Each modality provides an alternate perspective of the inspected pattern, and enables wider coverage of materials, patterns and defect types. The solution includes unique technologies to address the requirements of flexible OLED panel inspection.
 
“We are pleased to work with Orbotech and to implement its flexible OLED display inspection solutions,” said Mr. Ming Zhang, Vice President of YUNGU (Gu’an) Technology Co., LTD. “We expect that the implementation of Orbotech solutions in our new Gen 6 fab in Gu'an Hebei will contribute to our reputation for producing superior flexible OLED display products.”
“We are happy to collaborate with Visionox to provide our state-of-the-art advanced yield management solutions for flexible OLED displays,” said Mr. Edu Meytal, President of Orbotech Pacific Display. “We believe that our end-to-end AOI solutions will contribute significantly to the success of production processes for electronic personal devices.”

About Orbotech's Quantum™ Flex AOI

Orbotech Quantum™ Flex series offers display manufacturers cutting-edge automated inspection solutions for all types of display technologies including flexible OLED. Orbotech FPD AOI systems increase production yields using advanced optics for image acquisition, unique image processing technologies, algorithms and data processing capabilities, microscopic video imaging, CD/Overlay measurements, and automated macro (Mura) inspection to enable high-sensitivity defect detection and extremely accurate classification.
 
The Orbotech Quantum™ Flex series solution increase production yields and provides inspection and classification for additional OLED related layers offering full coverage of both Micro and Macro inspection, layer thickness and defect height measurement, accurate location of defects within a stack of TFE (thin-film encapsulation) layers. The system can be operated in N2 environment.
 
About Orbotech Ltd.
 
Orbotech Ltd. is a leading global supplier of yield-enhancing and process-enabling solutions for the manufacture of electronics products. Orbotech provides cutting-edge solutions for use in the manufacture of printed circuit boards (PCBs), flat panel displays (FPDs), and semiconductor devices (SDs), designed to enable the production of innovative, next-generation electronic products and improve the cost effectiveness of existing and future electronics production processes. Orbotech’s core business lies in enabling electronic device manufacturers to inspect and understand PCBs and FPDs and to verify their quality (‘reading’); pattern the desired electronic circuitry on the relevant substrate and perform three-dimensional shaping of metalized circuits on multiple surfaces (‘writing’); and utilize advanced vacuum deposition and etching processes in SD and semiconductor manufacturing (‘connecting’). Orbotech refers to this ‘reading’, ‘writing’ and ‘connecting’ as enabling the ‘Language of Electronics’. For more information, visit www.orbotech.com and www.spts.com.
