The solar industry offers solutions to convert converts solar energy into heat or electricity. Photovoltaic and solar systems are primarily located on roofs and facades, or in open spaces.

Workpieces such as wafers, cells, strings and finished modules are handled in the manufacturing process of photovoltaic modules. These extremely sensitive workpieces must be gripped gently, while avoiding any marks or contamination. At the same time, the industry has very high standards in regards to cycle times, speed and dynamics. Cycle times of less than one second for cell manufacturing processes are state oft he art. The requirements for vacuum technology are accordingly high.

Products from Schmalz are used throughout the entire process chain: from wafer and cell manufacturing to module assembly and even in thin-film processes.
