Founded in 2007, LINTON is a leader in the field of photovoltaic and semiconductor equipment manufacturing in China and the world. From the very beginning, it was born to fill gaps, meet market needs and create value for clients. As the earliest domestic company engaged in the R&D and manufacturing of professional cutting equipment in the photovoltaic field, LINTON has successfully broken the foreign monopoly and taken the lead in promoting the diamond wire cutting technology and equipment in the industry. It has helped lead users significantly reduce the cost of silicon wafers to highlight the advantages of single crystals, and completely replaced imported equipment. With outstanding technology, LINTON continuously upgrades product performance and launches new designs for large size requirements to stay ahead of the industry.

About us

Change the situation that photovoltaic cutting equipment is monopolized by foreign enterprises, and carry out strategic cooperation with clients

Diamond wire slicer promotes industry changes; the acquisition of Kayex ensures its absolute leading position in single crystal furnace equipment

Expanded scale of operation: vertical and horizontal layout - platform framework is formed

Kayex Trailer

The company launched the diamond wire slicer for the first time in China in 2013, which means that it has completed the development of the whole series of main equipment in the photovoltaic silicon wafer cutting process and driven the large-scale promotion of diamond wire cutting technology in the photovoltaic field, forming an important beginning for domestic cutting equipment to completely replace imported equipment in the following few years.

In the same year, LINTON acquired Kayex in the United States to obtain the most leading single-crystal furnace technology in the world's semiconductor and photovoltaic fields, and thus entering the semiconductor field. The Chinese and American teams work together to form highly complementary relationships. Since then, LINTON has achieved key breakthroughs in the photovoltaic field through independent R&D and innovation, in this way, it has developed its main business and made constant innovations with the development of trends such as large size.

Under the background of extensive layout in photovoltaic and semiconductor fields in recent years, LINTON has accelerated the formation of a horizontal and vertical double industrial chain on the dual racing track of photovoltaic and semiconductor.

1. Photovoltaic new energy industrial chain

Based on the one-stop turnkey service of photovoltaic silicon wafer, LINTON extends to the fields of photovoltaic cell and module core equipment + auxiliary materials, and provides customers with intelligent reform and direct output smart factory solutions with strong innovation genes.

2. Semiconductor and new materials industrial chain

As a member of the China Semiconductor Industry Association and The Third Generation Semiconductor Industry Innovation Alliance, LINTON integrates semiconductor and photovoltaic industry experience based on silicon and compound semiconductor crystal growing and processing technology, and continues to extend to the field of material growth equipment and cutting equipment such as silicon carbide and sapphire. While extending the two industrial chains, LINTON accelerates its transformation from a product company specializing in crystal production and processing equipment to a platform company specializing in providing photovoltaic and semiconductor integrated service.

LINTON will work with numerous clients and partners to further create a miracle of great value!
