Reis Robotics, a provider of solar module production line automation and integration, has released a new high-speed module-taping system.
Operation of the tape application unit is performed by a single robot, and the taping cell achieves a sequence cycle of 35 seconds for a standard 60-cell module, the company says. After lamination and trimming, the tape is applied to all four laminate edges, while being simultaneously corner edge-folded and lubricated for frame pressing.
Because the liner is loosened shortly before the application, the glue side is not touched prior to application onto the laminate edge, Reis Robotics notes. The application head is directly controlled with the robot control, thus allowing the tape to be applied in a synchronous manner and free from strain. Tape is changed without interruption.
