Cambridge, ON-based ATS Automation Systems Inc. has recently received $20.3 million in orders to design and build a number of fully-integrated, automated manufacturing lines for a major supplier of flat panel display materials.
The systems are scheduled to be built and delivered to the customer’s production plants in Asia in stages over the next 11 months. ATS has built similar systems for the same customer in the past. Some of the systems will incorporate enhanced vision inspection technology, developed by ATS, to achieve higher inspection rates and enhanced yields.
"Over the past five years, ATS has devoted significant resources to expand our process knowledge, build our technology base, and generate greater awareness for our unique customer-focused solutions in the flat panel display market," said Klaus Woerner, ATS president and CEO. "This order validates the strategic market development approach we have taken to target and align ourselves with the best customers."
The order was secured by the company’s US West Coast operations. ATS will primarily use the resources of its US West Coast and Asian operations to build these systems under contract. Based on discussions with the customer, ATS believes there is potential for significant follow-on orders.
