LPE, a company with close links to the development of Epitaxial Technologies.The late 1960s and early 1970s were crucial times in the development of modern computer technologies. LPE was founded in Milan, Italy during this essential period and began designing and producing Epitaxial Reactors.LPE’s initial output involved horizontal type reactors for 1.5-2’’ wafers. The wafers were subsequently increased to their current size of 8’’. During the mid 1970s, we began production of dual station barrel reactors with high frequency induction heating.These reactors were state-of-the-art products at the time and have been continually updated over the years. This process has resulted in the excellent reliability and productivity which have made LPE one of the world’s leading Epitaxial Technology Companies.
