News Release
October 5, 1998


MIDDLEFIELD, CONNECTICUT (October 5, 1998)......Zygo Corporation (NASDAQ:ZIGO) today announced a major step forward in the implementation of its strategy to take its precision measurement capability to the production lines of its customers. Ahmad Akrami, vice president marketing, sales and customer services, announced that ZYGO had received the second of two fully integrated automated lines from Kobe Precision, Incorporated. The orders from Kobe amount to in excess of $3.0 million in automated metrology equipment. Akrami commented, "this is what our strategy is all about. We have successfully combined metrology and automation to provide the customer with the ability to measure and sort 100 percent of their product giving KPI a big advantage over their competitors." The equipment to be provided under the two orders consists of automation equipment for handling cassettes of substrates for the hard disk industry, ZYGO's AutoMESA Flatness Measuring System, ZYGO's Automated Thickness/Sorting System, cassette lidders, and cassette stockers. Bobby Gulati, director of program management at ZYGO Automation Systems, added, "this order clearly demonstrates the reason for adding automation capability to our product offering. The combination of automation and metrology gives the customer cost savings and yield enhancement in his production environment."
