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.

The solar tracker market continues to mature at breakneck speed, with designs and component selections becoming ever-more complex in the pursuit of better project economics. But a more simplistic design could deliver a triple benefit of lower Capex, EPC and Opex costs. This webinar will set out the ideal single axis tracker design for utility-scale solar farms. The design leapfrogs from decades of experience, with a comprehensive understanding and attention to the three cost structures of Capex, EPC and Opx. Sun and Steel Solar has prototyped a single axis tracker designed to deliver up to US$0.03/W in real savings compared to existing single axis trackers on the market. That’s US$30 million for every gigawatt deployed.

The 10th edition of the famous Metallization and Interconnection Workshop, MIW2021, will take place in the Thor Central venue in Genk, Belgium, on Monday, November 15, and Tuesday, November 16, 2021 as a face-to-face meeting. We are longing for direct exchange of knowledge and ideas after a long time. Hopefully you can be part of it! But of course, the organizors will keep an eye on the evolution of the Covid pandemic. It will be assess carefully, whether the workshop can be held without major risks or excessive restrictions. We are looking forward to exciting talks, discussions and meetings and to welcoming you in Genk!
