Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum to equip state-of-the art display production line

Cologne, Germany / Pfäffikon SZ, Switzerland, April 25, 2013 - A well-known
East Asian display manufacturer has awarded Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum the
contract to deliver fore-vacuum solutions for its state-of-the-art production
process. This multi-million Swiss Franc contract involves fitting the
production line with around 200 systems. "With this major order, we are
positioning ourselves in the growing display and monitor application area and
have once again demonstrated our expertise in processes and solutions," says
Dr. Martin Füllenbach, Segment CEO at Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum.

Vacuum systems made by Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum are a key element in the
production of what is currently the most innovative display technology, AMOLED
(Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode), which is used in mobile devices
such as smartphones and tablets. Apart from the increased brilliance of color
and the improved black and white contrast, one of the major benefits are the
new design options that these flexible and pliable displays make possible.

Starting in 2014, Oerlikon Leybold's vacuum technology will be used in the
display manufacturer's standard production for applications including
vaporization, thin-film wrapping and transportation. Of particular importance
to the manufacturer are the short cycle times, superior process performance
and competitive operating costs of the vacuum system. This order demonstrates
Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum's leadership position in vacuum technology for
production processes.
