The Linear Motion and Assembly Technologies group from the Bosch Rexroth Corp. has developed a special transfer system that takes into consideration the special demands of solar production. The TSsolar Conveyor is designed with features and materials to serve the unique manufacturing requirements of wafer-based solar cell modules or thin-film technology modules, the company says.
Bosch Rexroth has incorporated high-friction belt technologies, special routing and handling devices, and variable speed drives into the TSsolar conveyor line to help ensure a gentle material flow; an extremely clean, particulate-free operation; and the ability to operate in the high-temperature environments (up to 200 degrees C) required for solar cell module manufacturing.
TSsolar conveyors are based on Rexroth's TS family of modular conveyors, designed for a wide range of flexible assembly and material transport applications for both automated and manual assembly operations.
