Home > Press > Vitex Systems’ Licensees Receive Multiple Orders for Barix Thin-Film Encapsulation Equipment

Vitex Systems, Inc., a leading technology developer, licensor and engineering service provider of thin-film encapsulation and moisture barrier films, announced that its equipment licensees, SNU Precision and Sunic Systems, have received multiple orders for BarixTM thin-film encapsulation (TFE) equipment.

Vitex Systems’ Licensees Receive Multiple Orders for Barix Thin-Film Encapsulation Equipment

San Jose, CA | Posted on March 11th, 2010

"SNU Precision just received a Barix TFE tool order from Taiwan," said Chyi-Shan Suen, President and COO, Vitex Systems. "This is the first TFE tool sold into Taiwan, marking an important milestone for both Vitex and SNU. We are very excited that SNU continues to expand its customer list which already included many companies in Japan, Korea and a few European countries."

"Additionally, our licensee Sunic Systems has received an order from its second customer in China. Sunic Systems had already delivered its first Barix TFE equipment order to a customer in China at the end of last year," Suen continued.

The Barix encapsulation process and Barix Barrier Film are proven solutions for manufacturing Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) displays that are lighter and thinner than any other commercially available displays. The same characteristics that make Vitex's technology valuable in the display market have been applied to thin film photovoltaic (solar) cells. By eliminating costly, heavy and fragile glass packaging, Vitex technology lowers the cost and opens up new possibilities for Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) and consumer applications.

"Market adoption of Vitex's proprietary Barix TFE process and equipment continues to accelerate. By the middle of this year, there will be sixteen Barix TFE tools operational at customers. We are very encouraged that several customers have multiple sets of equipment operational already or have repeat order for tools to be delivered soon," added Suen.


About Vitex Systems
Vitex Systems Inc., headquartered in San Jose, Calif., licenses its intellectual property and provides related engineering expertise to enable organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display manufacturers and producers of organic optoelectronic devices to speed time-to-market of thinner, lighter, lower-cost products. Vitex solutions include Barix™ proprietary encapsulation process technology; Flexible Glass next-generation flexible barrier substrate, and the GuardianTM deposition system tool. The company was incubated at Battelle Memorial Institute, the world’s largest independent private non-profit research foundation, and was spun off as an independent company in 1999.
