PV manufacturing process inspection specialist, ACT Aurora Control Technologies expects to supply its first repeat order for two ‘Decima’ inline production measurement systems with its ‘Veritas’ software.
The company said it had received a letter of intent from an existing customer to purchase the tools.
“Our work with this customer quickly demonstrated the accuracy and repeatability of the Decima measurement technology”, said Steve McDonald, Vice President of Business Development. “Aurora’s tube uniformity visualizations highlighted previously unknown levels of process variation. This information was vital to our customer when selecting the best furnace technology for their new line where Aurora’s Decima technology will be integrated inline for batch-to-batch diffusion furnace optimization.”
ACT Aurora noted that the order is expected to be for its three-track measurement system, which measures three tracks down every wafer as they emerge from the annealing or diffusion furnace at full production rates.
