Solar Cell Manufacturing Equipment

Solar cells (also known as photovoltaics or PVs) are arrays of cells containing a material that converts sunlight into electricity. Due to the growing demand for renewable energy sources, the manufacture of solar cells and photovoltaic arrays has advanced dramatically in recent years. Solar cell production is the world’s fastest growing energy technology – it has doubled every two years since 2002, increasing by an average of 48 percent per year!

Amada Miyachi offers a comprehensive range of both laser and resistance welding technologies for today's solar cell manufacturers. All of our welders feature closed loop power feedback, built-in quality monitors, and output data to meet the most stringent manufacturing standards.

Applications include laser welding of rear conductors to thin film solar cells, laser marking of thin film metal backing and silicon, and resistance welding ribbon to cells, edge connectors to cells, ribbon to ribbon interconnects, buss bars, and junction box connections.
