Rexroth introduces TSsolar conveyor for solar cell manufacturing
With the explosive growth in demand for solar power technology, manufacturers are ramping up solar cell production across the globe. Wafer-based and thin-film solar module manufacturing processes are extremely complex and sensitive, demanding ultra-smooth, vibration-free material transport. Bosch Rexroth has incorporated high-friction belt technologies, special routing and handling devices, and variable speed drives into the TSsolar conveyor line to help ensure a gentle material flow, an extremely clean, particulate-free operation, and the ability to operate in the high-temperature environments (up to 200 degrees Celsius) required for solar cell module manufacturing.
TSsolar conveyors are based on Rexroths industry-leading TS family of modular conveyors, designed for a wide range of flexible assembly and material transport applications for both automated and manual assembly operations. Rexroth's broad offering of conveyor components for transferring, routing, stopping and positioning products of all types gives the company an ideal starting point in providing effective technologies to solar panel manufacturers.
