Bruker Wins Over $3 Million in Orders for Consumer Display Solution
(Nanowerk News) Bruker announced today that it has received over $3 million in orders from a leading provider of consumer displays for Bruker’s self-calibrating ContourGT-X 3D optical microscopes. The ContourGT-X optical microscope plays a key role in the customer’s strategy to dramatically reduce production costs while maintaining the highest standards of quality as it expands production of larger, higher density displays.

“Display manufacturers are working to deliver sharper images with brighter colors on bigger screens while lowering power consumption of their products,” said Mark R. Munch, President, Bruker MAT Group and Bruker Nano Surfaces Division. “This means continuously pushing the limits of their production tooling to higher and higher levels of precision while increasing throughput in their factories to drive economies of scale. The ContourGT-X 3D optical microscope can quantify dimensions that are critical for high-fidelity, high-pixel-count displays, and identify defective features with greater speed and higher sampling rates than other techniques. The end result is a substantial increase in yield that can pay back the cost of the instrument in a short period of time.”
“The customer bought a single ContourGT-X 3D optical microscope and tried it in their factory,” added Rob Loiterman, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Bruker’s Stylus and Optical Metrology Business. “Their work with this first instrument demonstrated its breadth of measurement capabilities, ease of use and exceptionally high throughput to meet the demanding metrology requirements of their latest generation product. Based on this experience, the customer placed a larger multi-system order that puts the ContourGT-X at the core of their quality assurance efforts.”
About the ContourGT 3D Optical Microscopes
The ContourGT 3D optical microscope family features patented, higher brightness dual-LED illumination that, when combined with the systems’ superior vertical resolution, greatly improves sensitivity and stability. These surface profilers enable precision non-contact 3D surface metrology in difficult applications and environments that are challenging for competing systems. The ContourGT microscopes also feature new Vision64™ operating and analysis software and the industry’s most intuitive, modular user interface to deliver user-level customization capabilities for a wide range of surface metrology applications.
