KIC Partners with GS Electronic Vertriebs und Service GmbH to Expand Its presence in the European marketplace

Aug 18, 2008

San Diego � August 2008 � KIC, the leader of thermal process development and control products, and winner of multiple industry awards, announces that it has expanded its presence in the European marketplace with the addition of GS Electronic Vertriebs und Service GmbH, a leading solutions provider of photovoltaic cell manufacturing, to its global distributor network. Focusing on solutions for the fast-growing photovoltaic (PV) cell manufacturing market, the company will represent KIC's new SunKIC profiler.

GS Electronic Vertriebs-und Service GmbH supplies production equipment for the microelectronics and photovoltaic industries. Its portfolio includes screen printing systems, drying and firing furnaces, inspection systems, and turnkey fabrication lines for wafers, cells and modules.

Founded in 1987 by Wolfgang Glockner and Ludwig Schuhmann, the company is headquartered in Fulda (Hessen), Germany. It focuses on excellent sales and service of high-quality products, and has a track record of many successful installations at well-known manufacturers of electronic components, and PV wafers, solar cells and modules throughout Europe. With the company's well-trained service engineers, strong support from American equipment manufacturers, and its well-assorted spare parts stock in Fulda, GS Electronic Vertriebs-und Service GmbH is able to offer excellent service to in Germany and throughout Europe.

The SunKIC profiler benefits from several hardware and software innovations that help solar cell manufacturers better manage their thermal processes and increase their solar cell efficiency. The compact form factor (19 millimeter/0.75" tall thermal shield) enables the SunKIC to pass through the tight furnace tunnel clearance, and the easy-to-use software makes for quick and convenient profiling. Exceptionally powerful analytical software helps users study and improve upon all the important aspects of the time-temperature profile. Additionally, it displays all relevant process data such as peak temperature, dwell time in various temperature ranges, slope gradients and more. The SunKIC software also measures �the area under the curve� at any given temperature level to further help users analyze the recorded profile.

KIC's Process Window Index (PWI) instantly confirms whether the profile is acceptable. The SunKIC comes standard with a prediction feature that helps solar cell manufacturers improve upon furnace set points as well as their thermal process in general. The SunKIC is backed by 24/7 customer support and an unrivaled worldwide team of field service engineers.

�We are pleased to partner with GS Electronic,� said Bjorn Dahle, KIC president. �The photovoltaic market is critical to our growth, and GS Electronic has an impressive success record in this market. Besides being at the center of global PV activity, the company's commitment to customer service and satisfaction complement's KIC's strategy.�
