Rudolph Technologies Wins Multiple Lithography Orders

Rudolph Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:RTEC) announced today it has received two orders for its lithography systems, totaling more than $11 million. Purchase orders include a repeat order for the JetStep Lithography System for advanced packaging (AP) applications and a repeat order for a PanelPrinter™ 9200 System for flat panel display (FPD) lithography. The orders were received in the fourth quarter of 2013, and came from customers who are presently using Rudolph’s lithography systems in volume production, both of whom foresee new capacity needs that require the Company’s lithography systems. The JetStep system was shipped in Q1 2014 and the PanelPrinter system is scheduled to ship before the end of 2014.

“This repeat JetStep order is further evidence of the growing acceptance that we are seeing for our lithography systems in back-end applications,” said Rich Rogoff, Vice President and General Manager of Rudolph’s Lithography System Group (LSG). “The requirements of those applications are very different from traditional front-end lithography, and our JetStep system delivers immediate, tangible benefits. The most obvious of these is the increase in throughput and resulting reduction in cost of ownership; but numerous other capabilities, tailored specifically to the needs of AP applications, provide additional improvements in yield and reliability. Our 2X reduction stepper is tailored for the specific, highly demanding lithography needs of advanced packaging processes, including large depth-of-field, long working distance and flexible substrate handling.”

“The PanelPrinter 9200 System addresses the demanding flat panel display (FPD) requirements of the mobile display industry,” said Elvino da Silveira, Chief Technical Officer of Rudolph’s Lithography Systems Group and Vice President and General Manager of the Display Products Business Unit. “The PanelPrinter 9200 is a well-established, step-and-repeat lithography tool, performing high-resolution imaging on panels up to Gen 4.5 (substrate size of 730mm X 920mm) in the flat panel display market. With multiple FPD systems in the field, including systems at four out of the top 10 display manufacturers, we are beginning to see signs that the market for new lithography systems may be bottoming as demand for displays of smartphones, tablets and Internet of Things rises.”

Rudolph will discuss these recent orders, among other topics, during its 2013 fourth quarter and year-end earnings conference call today at 4:30pm EST. To participate in the call, please dial (888) 603-6873 (Domestic) and (973) 582-2706 (International), and reference Conference ID #33666883. A live webcast will also be available on the Company’s website at www.rudolphtech.com.
