Beneq to deliver ALD system to leading OLED customer

Beneq, global supplier of thin film coating equipment, will deliver a large-area batch atomic layer deposition (ALD) coating system to a leading Asian customer developing OLED products.

The system will be used for the development of flexible OLED products, for which high-quality ALD films are essential for product performance. Beneq batch ALD systems offer a unique combination of excellent thin-film quality, high-throughput and large-area processing capabilities, enabling scale-up of demanding thin-film processes.

Says Beneq CEO Sampo Ahonen: “This delivery is yet another example of the potential our technology has for the organic and flexible electronics industry, and of our commitment to serve this industry and grow with it. This delivery fits perfectly into the core of our corporate strategy, which is to work with industry leaders in demonstrating scalability and integration of our technology. We believe that our batch mode ALD technology, as well as the development of roll-to-roll ALD, are spearheading the technological breakthrough which will enable cost-efficient manufacturing of OLED products with competitive lifetimes.”

Beneq is a leading authority in batch-mode ALD systems, with access to more than thirty years of hands-on experience in industrial manufacturing of ALD-enabled products, as well as more than one hundred deliveries to academia and research.  In addition to batch-mode ALD, Beneq has initiated development of the first commercial roll-to-roll ALD system for wide flexible substrates, the WCS 500, in June 2011. The WCS 500 is especially designed for R&D and pilot manufacturing of flexible moisture barrier films. Beneq is also a member of R2R-CIGS, a high-profile photovoltaics project financed by the European Commission Programme (FP7), and which aims to scale-up laboratory processes to meet production requirements of flexible solar modules.
