Order Focus: AIS Automation Dresden installs MES at Bosch’s Arnstadt facility


AIS Automation Dresden has been tapped by Bosch Solar Energy for one of its manufacturing execution systems (VPC-MES) for installation in Bosch’s Arnstadt crystalline solar cell manufacturing factory. This order marks the fourth AIS Automation MES system to be installed in a Bosch facility, and will enable the increase in Bosch’s production capacity by approximately 400MWp.

With production scheduled to start at the Arnstadt facility in early summer 2010, the transfer and installation of the tool will be sped up to accommodate the impending start date. The new MES system will aid in the provision of extensive information on factory management, production, and quality assurance.

Gottfried Gerlach, AIS’s Managing Director, said: “We are pleased with this important contract and the continuation of our successful cooperation with Bosch Solar Energy. By using our comprehensive experience in the field of MES solutions for the photovoltaics industry, we will once again be a reliable and innovative partner for our customer Bosch Solar Energy. Furthermore, in this project, our VPC-MES will help our customer reveal cost saving potential in production control, quality assurance and production optimisation.”
