Inline solar cell measurement equipment specialist Aurora Solar Technologies (AST) has won an order ahead of SNEC 2019 from another major China-based manufacturer of high-efficiency PERC solar cells.
AST noted that it will supply four DM-110e measurements systems to the new customer in June, which marks the third China-based manufacturer customer that Aurora has secured since February 2019.
Gordon Deans, Aurora’s Chief Executive Officer said, “Over the past few months we have now gained orders from three of the global top ten solar cell manufacturers. These orders have followed a period of thorough competitive product evaluations by these industry leaders, demonstrating that Aurora’s products are technically and commercially superior. We are also in active discussions and evaluations with other top ten manufacturers. Building these customer relationships puts the company in a strong position for future sales of all of our products – DM, Insight and Visualize, as these product lines each provide complementary value to solar cell manufacturers.”
The DM-110e measurements systems are used for automation of manual sheet resistance measurements with limited testing after the thermal diffusion process step.
