News Release
October 5, 1998


MIDDLEFIELD, CONNECTICUT (October 5, 1998)......Zygo Corporation (NASDAQ:ZIGO) today announced it has received multiple orders for its AutoMESA disk flatness measurement and sorting system. The AutoMESA is capable of measuring the flatness of both sides of the disks used by the hard disk industry at the rate of 600 per hour and sorting them into cassettes based upon predetermined flatness profile criteria. AutoMESA combines ZYGO's interferometer experience with its automation, parts handling experience, and manufacturing process knowledge. Roger LaPierre, director of semiconductor and data storage industry sales, stated, "the AutoMESA is now the standard of the disk industry for flatness measurement. Disk flatness is extremely important, particularly as flying heights in drives get lower and alternative substrate materials are introduced. Yield improvement tools like AutoMESA are more critical to our customers than ever to be able to realize the yields necessary to grow profitably."

Zygo Corporation designs, develops, manufactures, and markets high performance measurement and yield improvement instruments, systems, and accessories used in high technology industries. The Company is headquartered in Middlefield, Connecticut, and also has operations in Asslar, Germany; Longmont, Colorado; and in Newbury Park and Sunnyvale, California. ZYGO is traded on the Nasdaq National Market under the symbol ZIGO. Additional information on the Company is available on the Internet at
