LDX orders Aixtron MOCVD reactors for LED backlighting market entry

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron AG of Aachen-Herzogenrath, Germany says that in first-quarter 2010 it received an order for two CRIUS production deposition systems in 31x2”-wafer configuration from new customer LDX (LongDeXin), a joint venture by Zhejiang Longfei Industry Co Ltd and China Delixi Holding Group Co Ltd founded last October. Scheduled for delivery in second-quarter 2010, the new reactors will be installed and commissioned by the local Aixtron support team at LDX’s new factory in Shanghai, where they will be used for GaN HB-LED production.

“Our company has decided to make a strategic investment to enter the display backlighting business,” says LED project manager Lin Loufei. “This project requires rapid in-house LED development and the manufacturing of materials for epiwafer-based high-brightness LEDs,” he adds. “We turned to Aixtron because of the company’s experience and the technical know-how its support team can bring to our project…We look forward to working with Aixtron to quickly and efficiently bring the new reactors into full production.”

China’s Zhejiang Longfei Industry specializes in developing and producing healthcare oxygen supply equipment, meters for industry, and fire alarm and linkage control systems. Via its customer network and after-sales service network, its products are also exported to North America, Japan, Turkey, Nigeria, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Its core businesses are the production of high-, medium-, and low-voltage electric apparatus, the transmission and transformation of power distribution, and industrial automatic control electrics. The scope of its business has been further expanded to trading and logistics services, mineral energy resources, environmental protection, renewable resources and private equity investment.
