Solar cell manufacturer Q-Cells SE has selected Camstar Systems Inc.'s SolarSuite to be deployed in two new production lines in Bitterfeld-Thalheim, Germany, and in its new 300 MW factory in Malaysia.
Based on the Camstar Enterprise Platform, SolarSuite is a manufacturing execution system aimed at improving process quality and cell efficiency. The company says the tools will also enable Q-Cells to address process-improvement needs and frequent tool upgrades.
‘[The] technology is delivering the ability not only to collect large volumes of data from automated tools, but to quickly analyze and immediately act upon that data for process improvement and increased equipment efficiency,’ says Robert Rudder, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Camstar.
