Netherlands-based Roth & Rau B.V., a member of the Meyer Burger Group, has received a contract from a U.S. customer to supply PiXDRO JETx inkjet printers for printing high-performance monocrystalline solar cells. The contract also includes wafer inspection systems from Hennecke Systems, another member of the Meyer Burger Group.
The inkjet printing and inspection systems are planned for use in a 100 MW production facility in Malaysia. Meyer Berger says the printing systems are capable of front and rear printing of up to 900 wafers per hour.
Delivery of the equipment to the customer's production site is scheduled for the second and third quarters of 2014.
