Camstar Systems landed a deal to supply its SolarSuite for Q-Cells’ two new production lines in Bitterfeld-Thalheim, Germany, and its new factory in Malaysia where production, at peak, is expected to be over 300MW by the end of 2010. Q-Cells chose the SolarSuite for its intended solution to lower cost per watt through improved process quality and cell efficiency.
“We are very pleased to be a strategic partner for Q-Cells as they create the most modern, fully automated solar cell production lines in the world,” said Robert Rudder, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Camstar. “We have made significant investment in our enterprise platform as a seamless foundation for manufacturing execution, quality management, and manufacturing intelligence. That technology is delivering the ability not only to collect large volumes of data from automated tools, but to quickly analyze and immediately act upon that data for process improvement and increased equipment efficiency – driving real, measurable quality improvements faster.”
