Accurate and precise temperature monitoring is critical for efficient and cost-effective melting, glass viscosity control, heat zone adjustment, annealing, and stress reduction. For decades, our instruments have been used in continuous and batch glass manufacturing processes around the world, where robustness and reliability are critical. Temperature measurement is also directly related to glass quality as well as prolonging the life of critical assets such as refractory walls.
New coating materials and layer stacks require advanced plasma power delivery solutions. Advanced Energy’s DC, pulsed DC, bipolar pulsed DC, and low-frequency AC solutions provide stable, reliable, precise power for innovative coating processes. Highly developed power delivery controls, including sophisticated arc management technology, increase uptime, deposition rates, and quality, while reducing cost of ownership.
