Aethera is transitioning mass timber customers from costly and outdated RF vacuum tube generators to its leading-edge solid-state RF Aethera power generators (APG). Traditional RF vacuum tube generators have been curing glue and heating veneer for decades, but the technology is increasingly more costly and more labor-intensive to operate and maintain.

Aethera’s 6.78 MHZ and 13.56 MHz generators are over 90 per cent efficient (AC-RF), with no user-serviceable or replaceable parts inside. The generators reduce operational downtime and wasted products. APGs are installed and hard at work in veneer heating systems, finger-joint lines, and beam presses at facilities across North America. Typical installation and initial setup is done without impacting processes.
