Aqualite Increases High-power LED Production With Six AIXTRON CRIUS Systems
(Nanowerk News) AIXTRON AG today announced a new order for MOCVD reactors from LED power chip expert and existing customer Aqualite Co. Ltd. The order comprises six CRIUS® 31x2-inch configuration deposition systems. The China based company placed the order during the second quarter of 2010 and after delivery of the systems in the current quarter, they will be used for high-power LED production.
The new reactors will be commissioned by the local AIXTRON support team in Aqualite's dedicated facility at its mainland China production plant.
Dr James Dong, CEO of Aqualite, comments, "We have been very satisfied with our three existing reactors as they are perfectly matching our requirements. However, we now have to increase our production capacity for high-power LEDs. AIXTRON has always been very helpful to us and hence we look forward to receiving these new CRIUS® systems. Our systems have delivered on their performance promise – AIXTRON engineering means they have superior specification on all counts but particularly in uniformity and yield. The quality of their engineering and the know-how of their local support team are first-class."
