Italy-headquartered 2BG SRL has introduced the IC200AR, an automated system for PV soldering.
The in-line system includes a robotic workstation that prepares the measure and welds ribbon bussing strings to complete the electrical circuit before module lamination. The company said it has paid particularly close attention to the integration of the soldering technology and the vision system to achieve high levels of reliability.
Cycle times are approximately 80 seconds for each 72-cell module. With an automated bussing station, solar cells are not subject to mechanical stress or excessive heat, the company adds.
