The order for two AIX 2600G3 IC reactors (both in 49x2”-wafer configuration) and three AIX2800G4 reactors (each in 60x2”-wafer configuration) will be delivered in second-quarter 2012. One of Aixtron’s local support teams will install and commission the reactors in Aucksun Opto’s cleanrooms in Huaian, China.

“We are familiar with the very high quality of service and equipment we can expect to receive from Aixtron, and their MOCVD systems will provide the perfect solution for the development and production of wafer materials for HB-LEDs,” comments Aucksun Opto’s general manager Kai Chen. “Aixtron has a strong presence in China and their local service team will play a key role in assisting our internal efforts as we ramp up production,” he adds. “We shall be returning to Aixtron in the future to help us with our plans for the production of HB-LEDs based on gallium nitride materials.”

Aucksun Opto is a subsidiary of Jiangsu Aucksun Co Ltd, formerly known as Jiangsu Aucksun Metal Co Ltd. Its current clients are mainly information technology (IT) manufacturing companies, and it operates its businesses predominantly in the Yangtze River Delta and the Pearl River Delta, China.
