Aixtron secures multiple repeat orders from China

Aixtron of Aachen, Germany has reported multiple repeat orders from Chinese organisations for its MOCVD systems in Q1. The company did not name the organisations involved or comment on the exact number of systems sold, but did say that the orders exceeded a total value of €7.5m, and that the systems will be fully installed and booked in the second half of 2007.

The orders include CRIUS and AIX 2800G4 HT systems for producing blue, green and red LEDs as well as novel, innovative GaN LEDs. The CRIUS CCS and the AIX 2800G4 HT Planetary Reactor represent the company’s latest developments in MOCVD technology, offering 30x2 and 42x2 inch capacity, respectively.

Dr. Bernd Schulte, Aixtron’s executive vice president, COO comments: “We are pleased about the customers’ confirmation of our technical improvements such as increased throughput, compact footprint, better maintenance, easier operation and handling, improved reliability and reproducibility. We feel customers are rapidly gaining confidence to select the production-proven Aixtron CRIUS and G4 systems for their LED capacity expansion”.
