Following on from its introduction at Intersolar Europe, 4JET’s new laser scribing system designed for both CIGS and a-Si flexible thin-film solar cells will take centre stage at its booth during EU PVSEC. The new roll-to-roll monolithic integrated process is claimed to provide advantages over connecting individual small cell shingles to a module.
The 4JET design is said to be based on a patent pending foil and beam delivery system that offers a precise standoff distance between laser optics and foil, while allowing full area processing of the entire foil surface, using upto 10 parallel laser beams.
The machine design is also said to be suitable for processing other flexible materials such as printed electronics and battery foils.
