Ore., Portland, United States:
Electro Scientific Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq:ESIO) announced an order for seven Model 2300 Chip Resistor trimming systems to be shipped to Beihai Yinhe Hi-Tech Industrial Co., Ltd. during ESI's second fiscal quarter, ending Nov. 30, 2002.
"We are pleased to add ESI's chip resistor systems to our new factory expansion," said Mr. Yao, president of Beihai Yinhe Hi-Tech Industrial Co., Ltd. "Their advanced technology will enable us to offer the highest quality chip resistor products to customers in China, Southeast Asia and Europe."
"Despite overall weakness in the passive components sector, we have seen some customers invest in ESI's strategic technology during the downturn in order to position themselves for growth when the recovery begins," said Bruce Goldwater, director of ESI's Circuit Fine Tuning Products. "Beihai Yinhe Hi-Tech Industrial Co., Ltd. is one of the leading electronic enterprises in China and their investment in our technology is a tremendous compliment to ESI and our capabilities."
ESI's Model 2300 chip resistor trimming system features an innovative dual-mode measurement system and provides high speed and high accuracy over a wide range of resistances. The system also features a diode-pumped laser with self-contained cooling and low input power for increased reliability. Customer productivity is achieved through non-stop handler operation that allows the system to be loaded while it is actively trimming. The systems will be used by Beihai Yinhe Hi-Tech Industrial Co., Ltd. to trim their chip resistors, in substrate form, to precise values at very high rates of speed.
