eMagin Ships OLED Deposition Machine
BELLEVUE, Wash., Sept. 28, 2011 — eMagin Corp. announced that its new proprietary organic LED (OLED) deposition machine was shipped from the manufacturer, SNU Precision Co. Ltd., and is scheduled to arrive at eMagin’s production facility in Hopewell Junction, N.Y., in early November.
The new machine is expected to increase OLED deposition capacity by approximately tenfold, to increase yield, and to contribute to a substantially more efficient, automated process with lower maintenance requirements and greater utilization. The $4 million tool will replace eMagin’s existing Satella OLED deposition system, a tool adapted and used by the company for both R&D and production since its inception in 1996.
With substantial production efficiencies expected, the company plans to use the machine to address its key domestic and international markets, such as military, industrial and consumer applications. Once the new machine is operating efficiently, the Satella machine will be used for R&D of new microdisplay products.
eMagin manufactures active-matrix OLED microdisplays for high-resolution imaging products.
