Better Power. Better Gluing


Better Productivity

Revolutionary Solid State RF technology for mass timber equipment.


The productivity of your equipment has everything to do with the quality of the RF power used. Our revolutionary solid state RF system outperforms vacuum tubes on every level. Integrating Aethera solid state RF power into your finger joint, CLT, GLT or LVL equipment will improve productivity and reduce operating costs.

The power to overcome the most common pain points with legacy vacuum tube systems.


Solid state reliability eliminates costly maintenance, unbeatable energy efficiency dramatically cuts energy costs, precise control reduces defects and waste, and everything easily integrates into existing equipment designs and with industrial controllers.

Aethera Solid State Advantages

Unprecedented reliability

With solid state, there is no maintenance required. The APG generator virtually eliminates downtime and costly replacement parts and repair.

95% energy efficiency

Traditional tube technology is inefficient. An APG generator can reduce energy costs by up to 50%

Superior flexibility

This generator eliminates the system design limitations of tube technology and offers superior flexibility with a wider range of applications. Can be configured to your exact power needs.

Space saving design

APG generators are the smallest, lightest high power RF generators ever built. Everything is designed to fit into a 19-inch rack, allowing you to reduce the footprint of your system.

Exact digital control

APG generators measure and fine tune power thousands of times per second, with no power fluctuations resulting in fewer defects.

Modern IP-based controls

Monitor from the desktop and Easy PLC integration with your industrial controllers.

THE APG SERIES EVOLUTION


Aethera solid state generators are available as standalone generators or as part of a complete integrated power generation system including the power generator, coupling network, transformer and cooling unit. Choose power levels from 10 – 400 kW operating at 7 or 14 MHz. Contact us for details.

The APG7-50 High Power RF Generator

6.78 MHz 50 kW

The APG7-50 is the smallest and lightest high power RF generator ever made. The innovative patent pending design is capable of operating from 4 – 8 MHz and features pinpoint digital control that instantly allows you to adjust power levels from zero to full, so you always have the exact power you need with no fluctuations.

The rack includes the generator, matching network and liquid cooling system.

Power. Configured How You Want It.

Choose power levels from 10 – 400 kW operating at 7 or 14 MHz

APG generators are available for purchase as standalone power generators that are ideal for OEMs to package into your products, or as part of a full power generation system including the generator, coupling network, transformer and cooling unit with all components integrated into a standard 19-inch rack.
