Amtech Systems, Inc. (ASYS) Reports Substantial Interest At Recent SNEC Solar Industry Exhibition & Conference For New Ion Implant & PECVD Products

|Includes: Amtech Systems, Inc. (ASYS)

Amtech Systems, a worldwide supplier of production and automation systems and related supplies for the manufacture of solar cells, semiconductors, and sapphire and silicon wafers, announced today that its new ion implant and PECVD products garnered substantial interest at the SNEC 6th (2012) International Solar Industry and Photovoltaic Exhibition Conference. The conference took place May 16-18, 2012, in Shanghai, China.

Amtech's China subsidiary, Kingstone Semiconductor, spent just a little over a year developing its ion implant system before showing it at the SNEC Exhibition. This system was developed precisely to serve the solar industry's continued need to increase efficiency at a lower total cost of ownership.

In addition to the exciting new technology from Kingstone, Tempress Systems, another subsidiary of Amtech, debuted its tube-type batch PECVD product at the SNEC Exhibition. In the development of this new product, Tempress has drawn on its vast expertise in the fields of diffusion batch processing and PECVD development to bring this new product to market. This move positions Tempress to double the size of the solar market it serves.

Mr. Fokko Pentinga, Chief Executive Officer of Amtech, commented, "We are excited to report a very high level of interest in our new products. Having the ion implant system physically at our booth gave our current and prospective customers the opportunity to see the quality of design and manufacturing of this solar implant system and familiarize themselves with its capabilities. We are processing sample wafers for a select number of customers with our machine and are having discussions on potential future orders for the beta machine."

"Our investment in research and development is delivering highly relevant technologies to the marketplace. Additionally, the introduction of these new technologies serves our ongoing strategic objective to expand our product portfolio and the size of market we serve, and to more fully participate in the next generation, high-efficiency solar market."
