Bruker announced today that it has received over $3 million in orders from a leading provider of consumer displays for Bruker’s self-calibrating ContourGT-X 3D optical microscopes. The ContourGT-X optical microscope plays a key role in the customer’s strategy to dramatically reduce production costs while maintaining the highest standards of quality as it expands production of larger, higher density displays.

“Display manufacturers are working to deliver sharper images with brighter colors on bigger screens while lowering power consumption of their products,” said Mark R. Munch, President, Bruker MAT Group and Bruker Nano Surfaces Division. “This means continuously pushing the limits of their production tooling to higher and higher levels of precision while increasing throughput in their factories to drive economies of scale. The ContourGT-X 3D optical microscope can quantify dimensions that are critical for high-fidelity, high-pixel-count displays, and identify defective features with greater speed and higher sampling rates than other techniques. The end result is a substantial increase in yield that can pay back the cost of the instrument in a short period of time.”

“The customer bought a single ContourGT-X 3D optical microscope and tried it in their factory,” added Rob Loiterman, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Bruker’s Stylus and Optical Metrology Business. “Their work with this first instrument demonstrated its breadth of measurement capabilities, ease of use and exceptionally high throughput to meet the demanding metrology requirements of their latest generation product. Based on this experience, the customer placed a larger multi-system order that puts the ContourGT-X at the core of their quality assurance efforts.”
