Solar cell production lines details

Lot 1 is the Midsummer Duo line, a fully automatic deposition tool for thin film CIGS solar cell manufacturing. Designed for high throughput, operational stability, optimised layer uniformity, superior material utilisation and energy efficiency.

The DUO tool deposits the complete solar cell material stack in an unbroken vacuum chain, creating a durable solar cell that requires few post-treatment steps. All materials are deposited by sputtering onto flexible stainless-steel substrates in the entirely Cadmium-free process.

The unbroken vacuum chain allows for a less stringent clean room environment while also minimising the risk for contamination. The Midsummer tool produces individual flexible cells on pre-punched 156x156mm, thin stainless-steel.

Lot 2 is the MDI line, composed of: MDI 4 scribing heads: 1 laser from Photonics Industries (RGH-532-6) 6W@100kHz 6ps pulse width, 532nm, 3 diamond needles XYZ + 0 or 90° rotation table. Dust collection system, cooling system, manual loading, automated patterning with the scribing heads, recipes and recipes jobs storage.
