Infrared for Photovoltaics Manufacturing
Product Announcement from Heraeus Noblelight, LLC
Drying, sintering and string soldering--the manufacturing of solar cells--requires heat in many of the individual production steps. Infrared radiation is a high energy, contact-free method of heat transfer which saves time and production space.
Thanks to the newly developed quartz reflector, the heating of carrier materials before or during coating processes can be carried out more efficiently in vacuum or at high ambient temperatures.
Below are links to examples of many of these. If you don't see an application that is similar to yours, contact Heraeus to discuss how infrared technology can help your process.
