New Product: Reis Robotics new ‘High Speed Module Taping System’ uses single robot


Product Briefing Outline: Reis Robotics has launched a new High Speed Module Taping System that handles tape application by a single robot. This newly developed system could substantially increase the process stability compared to the former systems available on the market.

Problem: Edge taping of solar modules prior to framing is a critical step for the protection of the module.  Long warranty periods make the fit and function of the taping a quality vital process step. 

Solution: The High Speed Module Taping System uses a single robot to apply tape to the module. This taping cell achieves a sequence cycle of only 35 seconds for a standard 60-cell module. After lamination and trimming, the tape is applied to all 4 laminate edges, while being simultaneously corner edge-folded and lubricated for frame pressing. It also supplies a higher level of precision in resulting edge cut. The liner is loosened shortly before the application, so the glue side is not touched even once prior to application onto the laminate edge. The application head is directly controlled with the robot control, thus the tape will be applied in a synchronous manner and free from strain. Tape spools are  changed without any interruption of work flow. The system features a very simple and durable design. 

Applications: This process step can be implemented on new or existing lines.  High volume production is particularly well-suited for automated taping, both from cycle time and quality perspectives.

Platform: The system features a simple and durable design. With more than 80 module lines integrated, Reis Robotics is the leading system supplier for module production lines, ranging from 10 MW up to fully automated 400 MW systems.

Availability: March 2010 onwards.
