SCHNEEBERGER Systems in the solar industry
One of the main process steps in the production of thin film solar modules is the building of a serial junction between the different cells on a single module, to maximize the overall efficiency. The straightness and the flatness requirements of the motion system represent one of the main target specs to be optimized in a laser scribing tool.
Based on the above mentioned characteristics (accuracy, damping, stability) customer is able to produce big size solar panels (2.2mmx2.6m) with max. performance.
Thanks the good understanding of the development engineers for the laser scribing process, the high quality of the SCHNEEBERGER linear guide ways and mineral casting technology SCHNEEBERGER System group built up an integrated moving platform with until up of today unachievable accuracy values.
