LG Display Selects Orbotech AOI for South Korea Facility


Reading time ( words)

Orbotech Ltd. announced today that LG Display has ordered multiple Quantum AOI (automated optical inspection) for Flex solutions for its new flexible OLED Gen 6 fab in Paju, South Korea, which is intended for flexible mobile device display production. Delivery of Orbotech’s solutions is expected to be split between the first quarter and the second quarter of 2018.

The production process required for flexible OLED panels is more sophisticated and complex than the traditional LCD manufacturing process due to its reduced layer thickness and increased number of stages. Based on Orbotech’s patented multi-modality imaging (MMI) technology, the Quantum™ AOI for Flex series is a comprehensive yield enhancement solution for high quality inspection, detection, classification and 3D measurement of critical defects that impact the quality and the lifetime of the final flexible OLED display.

"This repeat order from LG Display is testament to the high quality of Orbotech’s advanced solutions," stated Edu Meytal, President of Orbotech Pacific Display. “Orbotech’s end-to-end advanced AOI display solutions are designed specifically to address the unique challenges posed by flexible OLED panel production and will enable our customers to produce the most advanced FPD products with high yields.”

About Orbotech's AOI for flex Series

Orbotech’s Quantum AOI for Flex offers display manufacturers cutting-edge automated inspection solutions for all types of advanced display technologies, including flexible OLED. Orbotech’s display AOI solutions offers full coverage of both Micro and Macro inspection, layer thickness, defect height measurement, and 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, click here.
