Veeco launches dicing system for solar, LED and optics applications

Veeco Instruments Inc of Plainview, NY, USA has introduced the Optium ADS-800 Series Advanced Dicing System to provide high-productivity dicing for a broad range of demanding applications - including high-brightness LEDs (HB-LEDs), solar cells, optics, and microelectronics - in R&D environments, pilot-line production and high-volume production. The ADS-800 offers repeatable cut quality of devices at what is claimed to be unprecedented throughput as compared to other dicing systems.

“Our new ADS-800 Series Advanced Dicing System incorporates over 30 years of dicing expertise, offering high throughput and precise cutting of premium devices, critical for emerging markets such as LED and solar,” says executive VP Robert P. Oates. “We are able to reduce manufacturers’ dicing saw capital costs by over 40% due to our tool’s highly rigid cast-iron structure, high-performance air-bearing spindle and multi-blade cutting technology,” he adds.
