Oxford Instruments Wins Plasma Etch Tools Order From a Leading HB-LEDs Manufacturer
(Nanowerk News) Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology (OIPT) has announced that it has recently won an order from a leading manufacturer of HB-LEDs for three Plasmalab System133 ICP380 plasma etch tools for use in High Brightness LED (HB-LED) manufacturing. This order is the first of a potential total of up to fifteen systems from this important Asian HB-LED manufacturer that may be required over the next 12 months, and validates OIPTís position as a key supplier in the HB-LED market.
This order also comes on top of what has proven a very successful month for OIPT with orders placed for over 20 systems. This makes October the fourth highest order month in the company's history, consolidating an extremely successful 12 months which has already seen the first and second highest order months.
