Gyrotron Technology Inc. (GTI) has announced that its new solar encapsulation demonstration center in Pennsylvania is now operational. The center focuses on GTI's newly developed, high-productivity technology for laminating multiple types of solar modules using commercially available films.
The patented technology and equipment provides continuous production of encapsulated cells, the company says. With a modular equipment design, the system can be configured to match line speeds and produce encapsulated modules as rapidly as needed. The technology does not require any pressure for encapsulation, thus preventing panel breakage, and the equipment set can be integrated directly into existing production lines.
