Basler wins large order for Color Filter Inspection Solutions
Color Filters are a crucial building block of LCD flat panel displays. They get applied as thin layers on top of a glass substrate and allow for the proper display of the color information on the panel. The Color Filter production process is continuously monitored inline by using Vision Technologybased inspection solutions in order to optimize yield and quality.
By placing this new order AUO has chosen Basler as their preferred partner for Color Filter inspection solutions for the third time in a row since 2006. Basler was able to differentiate themselves from the heavy local competition by offering a leading priceperformance ratio. The recent new orders confirm Basler's leading position in the inspection of coated and bare glass for applications in the LCDindustry.
The generation 8.5 expansion at AUO is consistent with growing capacity utilization across the FPD industry during the last quarters. Capital expenditures in the FPD industry in 2010 are in general expected to grow beyond the very low 2009 levels. In this context the AUO project marks the beginning of again stronger order entry in Basler AG's SOLUTIONS business segment in 2010.
