LayTec Delivers Its 1000th Metrology Tool
(Nanowerk News) LayTec is happy to announce the delivery of its 1000th in-situ monitoring system!
Since its foundation in 1999, LayTec has proven to be a reliable supplier to industrial companies
and research institutions world-wide.
At the begining, the company focused on
metrology solutions for III-V based compound semiconductors in telecommnication applications.
In 2001–2005, after flexible adaptation of the product portfolio to the needs
of the III-N market, LayTec's EpiTT and EpiCurve® TT sensors became a must in GaN based
LED production. Hence, in 2008 the number of shipped metrology tools doubled as compared
When the current LED boom hit the roof in mid 2009, LayTec managed to upscale its
production capacities to the current market demand just within a few months. Since
then, several hundreds of metrology systems have been shipped world-wide. Compared
to 2009, the number of delivered products increased by more than 300% in 2010! Thanks
to the leading metrology performance in industry, LayTec's share on the MOCVD market
for new in-situ equipment is well above 70%!
LayTec's production and logistics manager Dr. Elmar Droege commented: "The immense
increase of production capacities was possible due to the extraordinary commitment
and high qualification of our employees as well as immediate additional investments
in the production facilities. Thanks to the high efficiency of our quality control, we managed
to reconcile the fast response to the growing demand with the high quality standards
expected from our industrial customers."
In July 2010 LayTec successfully renewed
its Quality Management Certificate according to the DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 norm.
