Rofin-Baasel has launched a turnkey reel to reel system for the production of flexible photovoltaic products.

The system has been designed to incorporate multiple laser sources that can be used to perform several processing tasks on Si, uSi, GIGS and organic cells within a single machine.

Built upon a substantial granite base, the system incorporates high-speed, high-precision, motorised axes to drive vibration-proof optics when the system is being used used in the step-and-repeat mode.

For on-the-fly applications, beam positioning is achieved using fast and precise galvo scanning heads.

A fully integrated vision system allows precise alignment with fiducials and enables automated inspection tasks to be carried out within the machine.

Rofin’s PowerLine SL PV series has been developed for use within the automation and production systems used by the industry.

Typical applications for this laser include scribing TCO/ITO/AZO layers on flexible substrates of the type that can be produced within the self-contained Rofin production system.

The PowerLine SL PV is available in two wavelengths, 1064 and 532nm, and its compact size makes it suitable for machine integration where one laser per scribe head is required.

For applications where beam splitting is appropriate, the higher output power of the PowerLine E series laser will support two or four scribing heads from the single laser source.

Rofin-Baasel UK Ltd is the UK sales and support subsidiary of Rofin Sinar Technologies Inc, which is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of industrial lasers and is quoted on the USA NASDAQ stock exchange. Rofin makes lasers and laser systems for marking, welding, cutting, drilling and perforating and offers sources and solutions across all the main industrial laser technologies CO2, solid state and fibre lasers. Our lasers are employed in most manufacturing markets to give customers unprecedented results in terms of quality and throughput. We have over 30,000 installations in industries such as medical device, electronics, automotive, jewellery, tool and mould, aerospace and solar power. Examples demonstrating the range of capabilities of Rofin lasers include: * In-line packaging material manufacturers use our lasers to create ‘easy open’ perforated lines in packaging. * High street jewellers buy our microwelding workstations to make and repair jewellery. * Surgical tool and implant manufacturers produce clean and permanent identification marks on their products with Rofin markers. * Photovoltaic customers rely on laser operations from scribing to drilling to make solar panels and wafers. Rofin-Baasel welcomes the opportunity to show customers what lasers can do for them.
