KaiStar orders multiple Veeco MaxBright M MOCVD systems for its LED manufacturing ramp

Epitaxial deposition and process equipment maker Veeco Instruments Inc of Plainview, NY, USA says that in second-quarter 2013 it received an KaiStar Lighting Co Ltd. Order for multiple TurboDisc MaxBright M metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) systems from from KaiStar Lighting Co Ltd of Xiamen, China. a joint venture between Taiwan’s Epistar Corp and China’s Shenzhen Kaifa Technology Co Ltd that began LED production in 2012. The systems will be added to KaiStar’s current installed base of Veeco MOCVD systems as part of the JVs 2013 capacity expansion plan.

“This latest capacity expansion is based on our customers’ growing demand for LEDs for backlighting and general illumination applications,” says Epistar’s president MJ Jou. “We have been delighted with the performance of Veeco’s production-proven MOCVD systems, which provide high productivity and low cost of ownership,” he comments.

“We are gratified that KaiStar has again chosen Veeco as their MOCVD supplier of choice as they ramp production,” says Veeco’s executive VP William J. Miller Ph.D.

Veeco reckons that its TurboDisc MaxBright M GaN MOCVD multi-reactor system is the industry’s highest-footprint-efficiency MOCVD system designed to manufacture high-brightness light-emitting diodes (HB-LEDs), providing up to 15% improved footprint efficiency and easier serviceability as well as offering flexible layout configurations compared to the original MaxBright.
