Mid to small-sized LCD equipment, semiconductor processing equipment for 300mm wafers, and large-sized LCDs, and are currently leading the fields of ELA (Excimer Laser Annealing), LLO (Laser Lift-Off), and OLED Encapsulation, which are the laser equipment necessary for the production of OLED panels. We will continue to grow as a world-renowned total equipment company through endless development based on Top Spirit, Professional Spirit, and Venture Spirit.
APS R&D Center
AP Systems is concentrating on developing core processing technology and facilities for the manufacturing of Flexible AMOLED, which is predicted to form a vast market, and pushing hard for the R&D to maintain its number 1 place in the global market shares in the related field.
AP Systems has developed core equipment for the display and semiconductor manufacturing process based on laser applied technology, heat treatment technology, modules, and plasma applied technology, and is providing them to the client companies.
Laser Application Technology
Annealing equipment is used to crystalize a-Si into p-Si in the AMOLED process, and also used to separate glass boards by coating with polyimide (PI) to form a film on the glass board in the Flexible OLED process.
Micromachining equipment is laser process equipment that can manufacture Fine Metal Mask using materials, and can realize patterns up to UHD (Ultra-HD) level.
Cutting equipment is used to cut glass and the board of the flexible display.

Thermal Process Technology
We provide rapid thermal process equipment, the core equipment in the entire process of semiconductors, to the client companies.
Rapid Thermal Processing (RTP) equipment, which treats wafers with high temperature in a short time using tungsten halogen lamps, is applied to the oxidation process.
Rapid Thermal Process
Rapid Thermal Process
The advantage of RTP is the ability to heat or cool rapidly, which raises or lowers the temperature quickly, so cost of thermal process can be greatly reduced. AP Systems’ RTP equipment provides excellent temperature uniformity, wafer rotation, emissivity compensation, and intelligent temperature control.
It is a non-contact rotation using magnet properties (Magnetic Levitation), which secures excellent temperature uniformity within the surface.
