  • Next Big Challenge for PV Makers: Wafer Handling
    to wafer transfer boats, " he says. One factor that is complicating the task of handling solar-cell material is a trend toward thinner silicon wafers. Raw silicon has been expensive and in short supply. So there is an incentive to use as little as possible. This has led the industry to find ways
  • Robots That Teach Themselves
    A "feel your way around " strategy can let robot arms learn their surroundings. Robots on production lines must be taught where to move. That is true in spades for robots that move silicon wafers in semiconductor manufacturing. Wafer-handling robots are carefully taught each location from which
