BTU International Receives Multiple-Unit Order for Tritan Metallization Firing System

Enhanced productivity and lower cost per watt from dual-lane Tritan systems

NORTH BILLERICA, Mass — Aug 24, 2010 — BTU International, a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the alternative energy and electronics manufacturing markets, today announced the receipt of an order from a customer in Asia for multiple Tritan™ metallization firing systems. All of the units are scheduled to be shipped in the second half of this year.


"These dual-lane Tritan systems will greatly enhance our customers' productivity, allowing them to lower their cost per watt," said Jan-Paul van Maaren, Ph.D., vice president of marketing at BTU.

The Tritan metallization firing system, featuring BTU's exclusive TriSpeed™ technology, allows users to take advantage of superior ramp rates ― up to 200ºC per second ― while not compromising the drying and cooling sections of the profile. The three-belt, three-speed system provides revolutionary control of profile development. In trials, Tritan has consistently shown an improvement in fill factor resulting in increased efficiency. This, combined with Tritan's low cost of ownership, enables our customers to achieve the lowest cost per watt.
