PV equipment specialist InnoLas Solutions said it had so far received orders equating to almost 1GW of production capacity for its laser systems used for PERC solar cell processing.
Markus Nicht, CEO InnoLas Solutions said, “Our investments in R&D are paying off. We are the technology leader in advanced PV manufacturing processes like PERC and cell cutting. These process steps offer a cost effective way to increase solar cell efficiency and thus give our customers a competitive edge. What puts us into a unique position is that we have taken these concepts from the laboratory to 24/7 production solutions with an excellent uptime.”
InnoLas noted that were several more solar cell manufacturers that are planning PERC cell migrations but have yet to confirm orders.
The ILM-2 laser system is claimed to offer the fastest laser process on the market, which can be adjusted between 1,600 and 3,600wph, with a claimed uptime of >96%.
