AE’s Pulsar™ High-Power DC Pulsing Accessory Adopted for Several Advanced Applications by End-Users Worldwide
FORT COLLINS, Colo., Feb. 7, 2006
—Advanced Energy Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: AEIS) today announced that its Pulsar™ High-Power DC Pulsing Accessory has been adopted by several leading end-user customers worldwide to enable the commercial viability of difficult, DC-power thin-film manufacturing processes for which straight DC power is inadequate. The Pulsar accessory has proven successful in reducing yield-crippling contamination, splattering and crazing, while improving target utilization in such varied applications as residential and architectural glass coating, flat panel display (FPD) manufacturing, roll-to-roll coating and headlight metallizing. In addition, the Pulsar accessory enables difficult processes to become competitive without costly start-up expenditures because it is a single, add-on solution designed to retrofit to old and new systems alike without the need to change power supplies or established control schemes.
