(SAN DIEGO, CA, Mar 15, 2011) -- Torrey Hills Technologies, LLC (THT) and KIC today announced an agreement to form a strategic business alliance to speed up the optimal thermal process setup of THT belt furnaces through the use of KIC thermal profilers. Under the terms of the agreement, THT will introduce KIC thermal profilers to its current and prospective furnace customers, while KIC will perform all sales and service support associated with the profilers.

"KIC is recognized as the market leader for thermal profilers," said Joyce Zhang, THT¡¯s Marketing Manager. "We welcome their technical expertise, state-of-the-art products and the industry¡¯s best customer support. KIC thermal process tools will help deliver faster furnace setup and higher efficiencies in both high volume production lines and development labs.¡±

Based in San Diego, KIC is the leader in thermal process development and control products. For nearly three decades it has advanced industries worldwide with their innovative technology firsts. KIC thermal profilers, including KIC Explorer, KIC Vision, and SlimKIC 2000, are great accessories for THT¡¯s belt furnaces. These profilers remove the complexities typically associated with thermal process setup, allowing furnace operators to easily acquire an accurate product thermal profile and quickly achieve the optimal process. 

THT will also endorse KIC¡¯s recently developed profiling and thermal process optimization tools for the solar cell manufacturing industry. These tools take advantage of KIC¡¯s extensive technology platform developed in the semiconductor and SMT industries. They are designed for quick and accurate profiling and process optimization for higher efficiency cell manufacturing. The product range includes the SunKIC profiler, the e-Clipse TC attachment fixture, and the Spectrum process optimization software.

"We are pleased to be in partnership with THT and have great confidence that our profilers will enable THT furnace customers to easily reach a whole new level of process improvement and control." said Bjorn Dahle, President of KIC.
