China-based PV manufacturer Zhejiang Hongchen has purchased a second PV1200 photovoltaic metallization line from DEK Solar to boost its throughput and increase production volumes.
‘After purchasing the first platform, we discovered that the breakage rate was incredibly low,’ says Xiang Xiao Long, general manager of Zhejiang Hongchen. ‘Plus, while consistently high print quality means that our cell efficiencies are extremely high, a compact footprint enables us to optimize factory floor space.’
DEK Solar says the platform delivers 1,200 cells-per-hour throughput, Six Sigma process ratings, 12.5-micron resolution and advanced handling capabilities.
