Veeco Instruments Inc. announced today that Hangzhou Silan Azure Co. Ltd., a leading LED manufacturer in China, has placed a multi-tool order for Veeco's TurboDisc® K465i™ Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) systems. The equipment will be used to expand Silan’s manufacturing capacity for blue and green high brightness light emitting diodes (HB LEDs).
Mr. Zhongyong Jiang, President of Silan Azure, commented “The growth we are experiencing supplying LEDs for general illumination, backlighting and outdoor display applications required us to add manufacturing capacity at our Hangzhou facility. After evaluating various suppliers, we chose to purchase additional systems from Veeco because of our satisfaction with the production-worthiness and reliability of existing K465i MOCVD tools at our fab. The excellent field support we have received from Veeco was also a major factor in our decision.”
William Miller, Ph.D., Executive Vice President of Veeco Process Equipment commented “We are pleased Silan Azure has chosen the K465i for their manufacturing expansion, and look forward to continuing to build upon our relationship with one of China’s top LED manufacturers.”
