Orbotech Solutions Selected by LG Display for New Flexible OLED Display Gen 6 Production Line

Date Announced: 14 Feb 2018

Korean manufacturer will implement multiple Quantum Automated Optical Inspection solutions in its new production line for flexible mobile device displays.

YAVNE, Israel, Feb. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Orbotech Ltd., (NASDAQ: ORBK) a leading global supplier of yield-enhancing and process-enabling solutions for the manufacture of electronics products, announced today that LG Display, a leading innovator of display technologies, has ordered multiple Quantum™ AOI (automated optical inspection) for Flex solutions for its new flexible OLED Gen 6 fab in Paju, South Korea, which is intended for flexible mobile device display production. Delivery of Orbotech's solutions is expected to be split between the first quarter and the second quarter of 2018.

The production process required for flexible OLED panels is more sophisticated and complex than the traditional LCD manufacturing process due to its reduced layer thickness and increased number of stages. Based on Orbotech's patented multi-modality imaging (MMI) technology, the Quantum™ AOI for Flex series is a comprehensive yield enhancement solution for high quality inspection, detection, classification and 3D measurement of critical defects that impact the quality and the lifetime of the final flexible OLED display.

"This repeat order from LG Display is testament to the high quality of Orbotech's advanced solutions," stated Mr. Edu Meytal, President of Orbotech Pacific Display. "Orbotech's end-to-end advanced AOI display solutions are designed specifically to address the unique challenges posed by flexible OLED panel production and will enable our customers to produce the most advanced FPD products with high yields."
