Develops and markets unique industrial technologies to a broad range of industries, including glass, solar and semiconductor. These technologies open new horizons, substantially enhancing productivity and cutting costs by, among other things, applying heat in a dramatically more efficient and effective manner than is possible with legacy technologies. Most of GYTI's technologies utilize the Gyrotron, a very sophisticated device originally developed for use in high energy for physics that is able to produce a concentrated flux of microwave energy called the Gyrotron Beam ("GB").
GYTI's proprietary and largely patented technologies enable use of this beam as an alternative or supplementary source of heat in a broad range of industrial technologies, allowing ultra-rapid, volumetric, and highly controlled heating to produce unprecedented results.
GYTI's patent-protected product lineup also includes a line of glass laminating and solar cell encapsulating equipment (the Gyrotron Laminating System, or "GLS"), which uses patent-protected laminating technology to address longstanding knotty problems in laminating and encapsulation.
GYTI's customer base consists of industrial manufacturers who will use our technology to improve their processes. The company's revenue model for its GB technologies is to license them to industrial manufacturers, integrate them into our customers' architecture and industrial process, and collect royalties. The company intends to monetize its GLS technology by selling equipment manufactured by subcontractors to GYTI's specifications and collecting licensing fees and royalties.
Semiconductor manufacture requires activating dopants by both heating and cooling. Use on these chips, increase the speed and power of computers and other semiconductor devices significantly. This technology facilitates processing of high-temperature semiconductor solar coatings on heat-sensitive substrates, increasing efficiency of solar cells.
GTYI's glass shaping technology can improve windshield glass quality while significantly lowering costs. The technology decreases the required shaping temperature, thus reducing optical distortion.
The Gyrotron facilitates joining glass, ceramics, plastics, and other materials, including completely sealing thin-layer PV solar modules, thus protecting them from moisture (which destroys the modules) for a projected 20 years, much longer than is possible with legacy technologies.
Preliminary testing suggests that a new GB technology can be used in food sterilization, especially in the processing of meat carcasses, eradicating bacteria on the surface of meat to an absolutely safe level without harming the quality of the food. Other GB applications include industrial glass cutting, tempering glass for both residential and automotive applications, tempering thin glass, and curing polymers.
