“We received a tremendous response from customers at the Solar Power Show in San Diego,” said Erwin DiMalanta, ABB solar segment driver. “ABB’s extensive product line combined with the company’s experience in cell and module applications places ABB in a strong position to provide automated solutions to the solar industry.”
A number of high-payload robot configurations are available for thin film glass handling, along with clean room options for thin film processing. The company also offers solutions for end-of-line pack out, front-of-line load and station-to-station transfers for large thin film glass and crystalline module applications. In addition, robots are used to load and unload frame sections for module assembly. These offerings capitalize on ABB’s extensive experience in glass handling in the automotive and structural glass industries; similar methods are used for large-scale automated solar module manufacturing.
Additional automated solutions are available for high-speed cell and wafer handling, robotic soldering and busing, and laminate edge trimming. Visit www.abb.com/robotics for more information.
