Advanced Energy Industries’ power supplies featured in Grenzebach Group’s new architectural glass coater demonstration in Hamlar,
This jumbo glass coater, which has the capability to coat glass up to 3 meters wide, is one of the few full-sized lab coaters in the world. The installation also showcases one of the biggest innovations in glass coating in the past 20 years, which is the significant industry shift to bipolar-pulsed DC power system technology. As performance, environmental and aesthetic requirements for architectural glass change, glass coating technologies are becoming more complex. Bipolar system technology addresses these market needs and also reduces the overall cost of ownership. The new demo tool will enable customers to test and evaluate the technology and manufacturing process without incurring full production costs, thereby filling a gap in research and development.
“When we set out to build our new lab and architectural glass coater demo tool, Advanced Energy stood out as the clear leader for partnership,” said Dr.
“Grenzebach has a legacy of innovation in industrial automation and glass production for more than 50 years, and the company is known for its progressive approach to adopting new technologies. We are honored to partner with them for this innovative lab installation,” said
Advanced Energy’s power supply presence in this coating lab is part of an expanding investment in research and development capabilities. This glass coater demo installation utilizes AE’s newest power supply technologies – the Ascent® DMS (dual-magnetron sputtering) and Ascent AMS (arc management system) solutions, as well as the Ascent AP SMS (single-magnetron sputtering) advanced pulsed DC solution. Ascent AMS power supplies deliver stable and repeatable power and advanced arc management, allowing maximum power delivery and a more stable process, with extremely low arc energy to prevent substrate damage. Ascent DMS power supplies offer unprecedented power-delivery ease and control, enabling precise tuning of film characteristics. Ascent AP SMS power systems offer advanced control of unipolar pulsed power, bringing new capabilities to single magnetron processes. These modular, cost-effective and scalable units increase quality, and boost throughput to enable advanced process innovation.
