Our Family of Furnaces

Our family of furnaces is designed for producing the highest quality silicon at some of the industry's fastest speeds, lowest costs, and largest formats. Each of our furnaces can be customized to meet your precise needs.

Key features of our product line:

  • Modularity—designed to be easily and inexpensively refitted for multiple hotzone sizes. As industry standards—and your needs—change, your furnace system can, too.
  • Faster crystal growth—Our systems are achieving some of the fastest crystal growth speeds in the industry, to speeds of 1.6 - 2.0 mm per minute.
  • Low operating costs—Much of our research and development targets lowering your operating costs, such as:
    • Low-power, high-efficiency hotzones that reduce power consumption by nearly half, extend the lifetime of crucibles to approximately 250 hours vs. typical 185 to 195 hours
    • Newly-designed heaters and insulation boost efficiency and lower operating costs
    • Superconducting magnets vastly reduce power requirements
  • Automation—Currently available automated capabilities include:
    • KrystalVisionTM system for monitoring diameter and controlling melt level
    • Kayex Intelligent Crystal Control System (KICCSTM) for hardware and software process control
    • Web Integrated Grower Supervisor (WINGS) for remote furnace management and data collection
    • Self-cleaning filters that partially automate the cleaning process required after each growing session
  • Larger wafer sizes
    • Hotzone sizes range from 24 to 36 inches optimized for 200 mm, 250 mm and 300 mm wafers (custom - capable of accommodating other sizes)
    • The first to market with a 200 mm furnace in 1987 and with a 300 mm furnace in 1997
