Leybold Optics will, it says, install the world“s largest thin-film coating system for glass production at SAGE Electrochromic“s new high-volume manufacturing facility in Faribault, Minnesota. The record-breaking coating line will be more than 150 meters long, contain more than 200 turbomolecular pumps, and feature a new twin sputter deposition system that operates at high substrate temperatures, among other technological breakthroughs. SAGE will use the system for high-volume production of SageGlass, the world“s most energy-efficient window glass. SageGlass is an electronically tintable dynamic“ glass for use in building windows and skylights. The glass can be switched from clear to darkly tinted at the touch of a button, or programmed to respond to changing sunlight and heat conditions. This revolutionary technology significantly reduces energy consumption and associated costs. Production start is planned for late 2012.
