GP Solar GmbH, a provider of measuring systems for solar cell manufacturing and a subsidiary of centrotherm photovoltaics AG, says it has won its first major order. The company will be equipping a factory under construction in southeast Asia with measurement systems from the GP Solar Inspect range for a leading European solar cell manufacturer.
These camera-based systems, which are also referred to as vision systems, are deployed in the manufacturing quality control of wafers, solar cells and modules. Special illumination units allow GP Solar to achieve a significantly optimized degree of measurement acuity, the company says. The systems also offer a fully automated calibration function to enable efficiency enhancements during production.
