eMagin to Build OLED Deposition Machine
BELLEVUE, Wash., Aug. 24, 2010 — eMagin Corp., a developer of OLED microdisplays and virtual imaging technologies, has signed an agreement to build its first production OLED deposition machine, leveraging the advances in its proprietary manufacturing processes.
The machine, which will be a key factor in the production of the company’s OLED microdisplays, is expected to increase OLED deposition capacity tenfold, to significantly increase yield and to contribute to substantially more automated processes. It will replace the Satella, an R&D machine adapted and used by eMagin for production since its inception in 1996.
“I believe this next-generation machine will play a key role in eMagin’s continued growth and success in the coming years,” said Andrew Sculley, president and CEO. “The substantial production efficiencies to be gained from the next-generation OLED deposition machine are clear, and the Satella will be used primarily by our R&D group, which will allow for a much more effective manufacturing process.”
The new machine is expected to be completed next spring, with production beginning in the fall of 2011.
