Sonobond Ultrasonics has introduced its MS-5010B Foil Splicer Modular System – an ultrasonic welding system for the production of photovoltaic solar cells.
The product features a new solid-state power supply that offers automatic frequency control and a rotating head with a circular welding disk. These modular units can be easily integrated into applicable production systems, the company says.
According to Sonobond Ultrasonics, its welding process – whereby solar panel manufacturers weld aluminum strips to the thin conductive metal layer deposited onto the photovoltaic modules – does not require excessive heat, fluxes, filler metals, tapes or other consumables.
The MS-5010B Foil Splicer can also be used for fast, clean splicing of aluminum and copper foils. A rack and spline with drive system are available for this application.
