OPTROTECH, DUPONT ELECTRONICS ANNOUNCE DWF PHOTOTOOLING JOINT PROJECT

OPTROTECH, DUPONT ELECTRONICS ANNOUNCE DWF PHOTOTOOLING JOINT PROJECT
 BILLERICA, Mass., July 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Optrotech (NASDAQ: OPTKF) and DuPont Electronics have announced their intent to develop and introduce a direct write film (DWF) system for phototooling applications in early 1993. The system will enable printed circuit board (PCB) fabricators and service bureaus to produce phototools, used to image printed circuit boards, on special films that do not require any wet processing after exposure and which can be inspected as they are being imaged on the plotter.
 Optrotech has been engaged in developing laser plotting technology, based on high-power laser diodes and advanced multibeam modulation techniques, for exposure of direct write films. DuPont has been involved in film research to develop products that can be exposed by high-energy lasers.
 In recent years major progress has been achieved in the development of both the plotting device and the film technology. As a result of these recent achievements, Optrotech and DuPont have agreed to work together to optimize and introduce a system to the PCB industry consisting of plotting equipment manufactured and marketed by Optrotech, using a film to be manufactured and marketed by DuPont Electronics.
 Both companies expect to demonstrate the new plotting system and film in early 1993. It is believed that successful performance under this agreement will give both companies a technology and marketing advantage that will uniquely meet emerging PCB market needs.
