Linton Crystal Technologies was formed in April of 2013 to sell and service crystal growing equipment and related accessories. Shortly after being formed, we signed a license agreement with SPX Corporation for the Intellectual Property (IP) relating to the Kayex brand of crystal growing equipment.
Later, in June of 2013 Linton Crystal Technologies moved into a 15,000 square ft (1,400 square m) facility in Rochester, NY. The core team of employees is comprised of former Kayex employees with nearly 200 years of combined experience in all aspects of the business. This unique combination of state-of-the-art facilities and deep industry knowledge are what enables us to provide you high quality equipment at an affordable price.
Linton Crystal Technologies’s mission is to support your silicon ingot growing operations with:
- Design and development of new equipment. This includes next generation crystal growing furnaces for both the semiconductor and solar industries, as well as customized equipment built to meet your specific requirements.
- Provide technical support and process development for CZ crystal growers. The technical support team includes experienced engineers that are available to resolve technical issues over the phone and field service engineers that are available to service the installed base of equipment throughout the world. The Rochester facility will also offer spare parts for sale to support the existing base of Kayex brand CZ growers.
- Perform innovative research and development in the field of crystal growing that includes low power hot zones and recharge technology.
- Help customers become more vertically integrated. We do this by providing sales support for Kayex brand CZ crystal growers as well as Linton saws.
