|Zygo Corporation Receives Order for New Ink Jet Printing Metrology System|
MIDDLEFIELD, CT, Oct 04, 2006 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX News Network) -- Zygo Corporation (NASDAQ: ZIGO) announced today that its Display Solutions Division received an order in excess of $1.4 million for its DropShot™ Flat Panel Metrology system. The DropShot™ system is specifically designed to operate with the latest OLED and LCD ink jet printing technologies to analyze product quality and provide valuable feedback for real time process control. This latest product from the ZYGO Display Solutions Division joins a family of flat panel products that combine precision 3D metrology with inspection technology. This provides display makers with critical data necessary to adapt ink jet printing technology to next generation LCD and OLED production fabs.
"ZYGO's solutions are now used in both ink jet printer process development, as well as large scale color filter production," said Brian Monti, Vice President and General Manager of ZYGO'S Display Solution Division. "We are extremely pleased to be at the forefront in helping to reduce display product manufacturing costs through the adoption of new production methods like ink jet printing in fabs ranging in size from G5 through G8."
The DropShot™ system's tool is aimed at optimizing ink jet and other novel display manufacturing methods that require concurrent 2D and 3D high-speed metrology. This system utilizes ZYGO's largest staging platforms and provides throughput 30% greater than the Company's previous designs. DropShot™ will be supplied with ZYGO's latest generation of Intellisensor™ technology, which includes advances in optical techniques that allow for enhanced film thickness and volume measurements.
