1366 Technologies, Inc. Announces Opening of New Manufacturing Facility
Jan 30 13
1366 Technologies, Inc. announced the opening of its new, 25 MW wafer manufacturing facility in Bedford, Massachusetts. The 42,000 square foot factory, slated to employ 100 people, represents the final step in the path to commercialization of the company's Direct Wafer(TM) technology, a transformative manufacturing process that produces a uniformly better wafer at half the cost. The new factory is the heart of 1366's R&D operation and the proving ground for Direct Wafer, which forms multicrystalline wafers directly from molten silicon instead of multi-step, energy- and capital-intensive process. Within the next 12-18 months, Direct Wafer production will surge from thousands of wafers to millions, as the company's team of engineers and scientists fine tune the process to where it can be easily transferred and replicated in future facilities.
