|IPG Photonics Expands Laser Production with Purchase of Veeco GEN2000 MBE System|
“Veeco’s GEN2000 is the perfect complement to our existing set of Veeco
MBE systems because of its superior throughput and low production
costs,” said Dr.
With their excellent performance, low power consumption and favorable ownership costs, fiber lasers are becoming the cutting and welding method of choice for materials processing applications, particularly in the automotive industry, according to a report on the laser cutting market from Markets and Markets. As the technology continues to advance, fiber lasers are gaining adoption in other industries including semiconductor processing, 3-D printing and smartphone manufacturing.
“IPG is the clear leader in fiber laser production and has been
utilizing our production MBE systems for years,” said
About GEN2000 Production MBE System
The GEN2000 MBE System delivers exceptional throughput and cost of ownership for high-capacity production applications. Its cluster tool design provides the industry’s most cost effective 7x6” epiwafer growth of devices such as lasers, multi-junction solar cells, and pseudomorphic high-electron-mobility transistors (pHEMTs). Its cluster tool architecture minimizes clean-room space and downtime attributed to maintenance and allows for growth of different materials in connected modules.
Veeco’s process equipment solutions enable the manufacture of LEDs, flexible OLEDs, power electronics, hard drives, MEMS and wireless chips. We are the market leader in MOCVD, MBE, Ion Beam and other advanced thin film process technologies. Our high performance systems drive innovation in energy efficiency, consumer electronics and network storage and allow its customers to maximize productivity and achieve lower cost of ownership.
