Product Briefing Outline: The InnoLas Impala series of large scale laser processing systems provides multiple laser beams technique and parallel processing heads for increased throughput. Innovative handling concepts minimize defects and contamination. The IMPALA laser systems are designed for all high-accuracy processes (P1 through P3) of thin film processing. InnoLas Systems can ensure optimal transition to industrial production conditions.

Problem: Precise laser scribing is of key importance for successful production of thin-film solar modules. The accuracy of the scribing process as well as the use of an appropriate laser source according to the substrate has direct influence on the quality and efficiency of the finished solar panels. At the same time the processing time has to be minimized to guarantee utmost throughput and a most cost-efficient way of manufacturing.

Solution: To optimize results the Impala ‘Multiple Laser Beam Option” enables substrates to be processed with multiple laser beams in parallel. With the integration of different wavelength laser sources, the system can also be customized to specific application requirements. Substrates are manipulated on the machine platform with minimum mechanical contact to avoid damage and contamination. Machine precision minimizes distances between scribes in monolithic interconnections. Impala InnoLas systems now offers the Impala TTG for ‘Through-The-Glass’-structuring. With these two main models, all thin-film applications are covered.

Applications: Impala/Impala TTG are designed as workstations for precise processing over a large area for processing panels up to 1200 x 1600 mm size.

Platform: Modular in construction they can be tailored to customer requirements. Both laser processing and mechanical scribing are available. A variety of laser sources (Nd:YAG-, Nd:Vanadate-, Pico-Second laser at 355 nm /532 nm /1064 nm wave length) is available to machine different thin-film technologies. Enhanced drive and handling concepts, automatic alignment based on precise machine vision systems as well as integrated solutions to compensate for glass waviness, provide the required accuracy and throughput.

Availability: June 2010 onwards.

Utility-scale solar is evolving, shaped by higher power modules and demand for increasingly lower levelised cost of electricity (LCOE). Those trends are also changing project requirements elsewhere, with inverters capable of delivering high power density and power capacity in strong demand. In this webinar, FIMER will detail how its innovative high-power, multi-MPPT string inverter and modular conversion solution can both meet those demands and transform the utility-scale solar sector for the better.

The race is on but we need to sprint… With global climate talks fast approaching and time running out to prevent the most disastrous impacts of climate change, now is the time to act. The Summit will explore the opportunities that emerge from taking action on climate change and provide a clear pathway forward for governments, citizens and companies. Taking place just 10 days before the G20 meeting in Rome, on 30-31 of October, and in the lead up to the critical COP26 meeting in Glasgow from 31 October–12 November, this event will be instrumental in influencing ambitious global action.

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!
