Abstract:
Models 655 and 665 Now Ship with Either 380V or 480V Power Supplies Facilitating Adoption of CVD Diamond Deposition Technology Globally

sp3 Diamond Technologies Announces Three-Phase, 380V Integrated Power Supply CVD Diamond Hot Filament Reactors

Santa Clara, CA | Posted on December 1st, 2010

sp3 Diamond Technologies, Inc. (sp3), a leading supplier of diamond products, equipment and services, today announced the ability to ship its Model 655 (single-chamber) or Model 665 (dual-chamber) hot filament CVD diamond reactors with an integrated power supply that complies with local 380V three-phase electrical systems. The availability of the lower-voltage power supply (342 to 440 VAC) facilitates the adoption of CVD diamond in manufacturing by eliminating the need for customers to use step-down transformers to implement sp3's diamond deposition systems in certain countries.

"Given the global nature of manufacturing today, a company's ability to offer products that allow direct, local power connections is a critical requirement for adoption," said Dwain Aidala, president and COO of sp3 Diamond Technologies, Inc. "sp3 has worked with a power supply manufacturer to provide integrated 380V in our Models 655 and 665 systems supplementing our existing 480V (396 to 528 VAC) supply and allowing us to now ship systems that can be implemented virtually anywhere in the world without any customer power adaptations required. This capability is key to further establishing the viability of CVD diamond as a material of choice and expanding our customer base for our CVD diamond deposition systems."

The new electrical supply targets Asian countries including China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam, as well as European countries including Italy, Belgium, France, Sweden, Hungary, Norway, Poland, Spain and the United Kingdom, among others. sp3's hot filament diamond deposition reactors are already used in manufacturing of cutting tools. Other key markets that are rapidly moving towards full commercialization of CVD diamond include chemical mechanical planarization (CMP) pad conditioners, diamond-coated electrodes for water treatment and diamond interlayers on semiconductor wafers.
