Tempress, Solar Subsidiary of Amtech Systems, Strengthens market position with industry acceptance of its Next Generation (HD-POCl3) Solar Diffusion System
Amtech Systems, Inc. a global supplier of production equipment and related supplies for solar, semiconductor, and LED markets, recently announced that its solar subsidiary, Tempress Systems, an industry leader for POCl3 and BBr3 (Boron) diffusion, has won an order from a new customer in Taiwan, a repeat order from an existing customer in Taiwan and installed approximately 800MW of its next-generation solar diffusion systems at a leading Chinese solar cell and module manufacturer.
Mr. Fokko Pentinga, Chief Executive Officer of Amtech, commented, “After Tempress’ successful implementation of approximately 400 megawatts (MW) of HD-POCl3 systems at a top-tier Taiwanese cell producer, we are proud to announce a repeat order from this same Taiwanese customer and a new order from a new customer in Taiwan. In addition, we successfully installed approximately 800MW of our atmospheric high-throughput diffusion systems at a leading Chinese solar cell and module manufacturer. One of the key differentiators is the integrated compact automation which seamlessly matches the high output of the HD-POCl3. This system is delivered and installed by another subsidiary of Amtech, R2D Automation.
Pentinga added, “We are very pleased that our fully integrated, automated system platform, including the HD process, is fully qualified and accepted in the industry. With this next generation, low cost solution for POCl3 diffusion, Tempress is proving its leadership in the POCl3 market by innovations that lead to low cost solutions.”
