ACT Aurora Control Technologies is using engineering equipment and services firm, SIBCO to support market penetration of its inline measurement solutions to the China-based PV manufacturing sector.
The agreement includes the development, marketing and installation of ACT’s inline measurement and process control applications for its ‘Decima’ and ‘PMC’ inline measurement and control products.
“We chose Aurora’s Decima and PMC products because they are unique in their specific design and capabilities for inline process control, and they fit extremely well with our high-efficiency cell manufacturing systems,” said Ton Schless, SIBCO’s CEO. “By combining our products, PV wafer and cell manufacturers will be able to readily maximize their production line yields and throughput, providing a lower cost of ownership and higher profitability from manufacturing operations.”
“We are very pleased to work with SIBCO in China, as they are a successful and established manufacturing engineering firm that, over the past seven years has designed and brought into operation more than forty new manufacturing technology installations in the photovoltaic and semiconductor industries,” said Gordon Deans, Aurora’s President & CEO. “We expect this relationship will benefit manufacturers and accelerate the adoption of Aurora’s products in the Chinese photovoltaic market.
ACT has recently garnered evaluation testing opportunities for its CD measurement technology.
