New Center of Excellence for Photovoltaics Process Technology in China

BTU International, a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the alternative energy and electronics manufacturing markets, today announced the opening of its new Center of Excellence for Photovoltaics Process Technology in Shanghai, China.

BTU opened the first of two new process technology facilities as part of its continued investment in Alternative Energy business initiatives. BTU's first Center of Excellence for Photovoltaics Process Technology is located within its Shanghai manufacturing facility and showcases its In-Line Diffusion System featuring a Phosphorus Doper, and a metallization production line including the DEK PVP1200 screen printer. The center is staffed by process engineers with expertise in in-line processing for photovoltaics.

"We are excited to be able to leverage this new center for partnerships and process development work with the growing photovoltaics customer base throughout Asia. This venue will also provide a site for further collaboration with DEK, our strategic partner in metallization," said Paul J. van der Wansem, chairman and CEO of BTU International. "We look forward to helping customers with older, less efficient, batch processes switch to more productive in-line processes."

The opening celebration of this center was jointly hosted by BTU and DEK, and featured invited speakers in the areas of Thin Film and Silicon Photovoltaics.
