26 Sep 2016
Advanced Energy Industries, Inc., incorporated on September 1, 1995, is a provider of precision power conversion, measurement and control solutions. The Company is engaged in designing, manufacturing, selling and supporting its power conversion products and solutions that transform power into various forms in various applications ranging from manufacturing and industrial processes to instrumentation, and test and measurement. It also provides repair and maintenance services for its products. The Company operates through Precision Power segment. The Company's process power products enable manufacturing processes that use thin films for various products, such as semiconductor devices, flat panel displays, thin film renewables, hard and industrial coatings and architectural glass. It also supplies power control modules for controlling thermal processes, and thermal instrumentation products for temperature measurement, both of which provide solutions for thin film semiconductor, thin film industrial and heavy industry. Its remote plasma sources are used in the thin films processing industries and in gas abatement applications. The Company's high voltage products offer power solutions for semiconductor, analytical instrumentation, industrial x-ray and medical imaging applications. Its network of global service support centers offers repair services, conversions, upgrades, and refurbishments to companies using the Company's products.
The Company principally serves original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and end customers in the semiconductor, flat panel display, solar panel and other industrial capital equipment markets. Its products are used in a range of markets, applications and processes, including the manufacture of capital equipment for semiconductor devices, thin film applications for thin film renewables and architectural glass, and for other thin film applications, including flat panel displays, data storage and industrial coatings.
The Company's thin film deposition power conversion systems include direct current (DC), pulsed DC low frequency, high voltage and radio frequency (RF) power supplies, matching networks, remote plasma sources (RPS) for reactive gas applications and RF instrumentation. Its power conversion systems refine, modify and control the raw electrical power from a utility and convert it into power that may be customized. Its power conversion systems are used by semiconductor, solar panel and similar thin film manufacturers, including flat panel display, data storage, industrial hard coating and ophthalmic optical coating equipment makers, and architectural glass manufacturers.
The Company's power control modules and thermal instrumentation products are used in the semiconductor industry, including adjacent thin film applications for solar photovoltaic (PV) and light emitting diode (LED) industries, and heavy industries, for thermal control and temperature measurement solutions for applications in which time-temperature cycles affect material properties, productivity and yield. Its products are also used in rapid thermal processing, chemical vapor deposition, crystal growing, and other semiconductor and solar applications requiring non-contact temperature measurement. They are also used in chemical processing, glass manufacturing and other general industrial power applications.
The Company's global support services group offers in-warranty and out-of-warranty repair services in the regions in which it operates. To provide local repair service and customer support, it maintains a across the world support organization, consisting of both direct and indirect activities through partnership with local distributors in the United States, the People's Republic of China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Germany and Great Britain.
The Company competes with MKS Instruments, Inc., Comdel, Inc., Daihen Corporation, Kyosan Electric Mfg. Co., Ltd., Huttinger Elektronik GmbH, Comet Holding AG, New Plasma Products, Entech, ADTech, Spellman High Voltage, Crane, Matsusada Precision, Lumasense Technologies, CI Systems, BASF, Laytec GmbH, Eurotherm by Schneider Electric, Control Concepts Inc., CD Automation and Spang Power Electronics.
