“Achieving this milestone only one month from equipment move-in demonstrates our ability to operationally execute and to become a key supplier in the global LED market,” said Chen Jun, general manager of Crystalbridge.
The model K1 sapphire crystal grower is now in startup at multiple customers in China. The K1 uses a modified kyropoulos (KY) technology, combining the proven high crystal quality of kyropoulos with proprietary seeding, automation and process control capability to result in the highest productivity levels available.
“We researched multiple crystal growth technologies prior to making our selection,” Chen said. “We chose Thermal Technology’s K1 because KY technology is proven to yield very high quality substrates and is in successful production at a majority of the largest sapphire producers in the world. The K1 cycle time is 25-30% faster than other alternatives, so each of our systems can produce 25,000 to 30,000 substrates more per year than our competitors using HEM or other alternatives.”
