iTi Solar, a manufacturer dedicated to advancing the economics of clean, renewable energy through the use of industrial ink-jet technologies, has been selected by Solarcoating Machinery GmbH (ScM) of Germany, a supplier of turnkey production line solutions for flexible solar cell fabrication, to provide the first digital ink-jet system for its integrated roll-to-roll solar cell manufacturing production line.
iTi Solar says it will provide ScM with precision digital industrial ink-jet systems that improve production efficiencies and reduce manufacturing costs. The single-pass ink-jet printing technology will be integrated into ScM's flexible, roll-to-roll manufacturing line process.
‘Solar cell manufacturers around the world want to produce quality, high-efficiency solar cells that enable solar energy to cost-effectively compete with traditional energy sources,’ says Thomas Kolbusch, managing director of ScM. ‘We believe ink-jet technologies represent a powerful tool in reducing manufacturing costs and improving efficiency.’
