– Commercialization of highly innovative manufacturing technology as Result of intensive R & D activities
– New feature allows high-efficiency cell with increased Efficiency and increased profitability
– Received first orders of Yingli, Bosch and Conergy
Reutlingen, 18 May 2010 – Manz Automation AG, one of the world leading technology provider for semiconductor and flat panel Display (FPD) industry, has for its OneStep Selective Emitter technology first orders of Yingli, Bosch and Conergy received. The innovative procedure has been in numerous trials with great success tested. All three clients are the Manz-system in the coming months introduce into its pilot production and then in mass production verified. This is a crucial Manz Step on the path of the new development to commercialization of innovative selective emitter process succeeded.
In the case of the Manz OneStep selective emitter process, the selective emitter structures generated by a laser process. Using a specially designed laser optics it is possible for parts of the Phosphorus diffusion in the glass gently and phosphorus available free of defects again to diffuse into the surface of the solar cell. This allows locally increase the doping with phosphorus atoms and thus the Conductivity between the silicon wafer and the contact fingers significantly be increased.
In conjunction with an adapted diffusion profile of the whole Cell could increase the efficiency of over 0.5 Percentage points in test series, carried out with different customers were detected. To realize the full potential for increasing the to achieve efficiency, the contact fingers must be extremely precise than the generated by the laser, selective emitter structure lie. This is exactly what allows the newly developed by Manz Hochpräzisionsdrucker HAP2400. In extensive tests and a test series demonstrated reproducible accuracy of well under ten microns.
The HAP2400 is thus the by far most accurate and fastest Screen printing machine on the market. As an integral part of Manz provides back-line This machine together with the OneStep Selective emitter laser system an ideal combination for the production of high-efficiency solar cells dar. Dieter Manz, Manz Automation AG CEO of shows from the excellent result of intensive research and Development activities smitten and is convinced that for a new Manz set to have technological highlight: ‘Through our selective Emitter technology in conjunction with our high-precision screen printers, we will we can open up additional market share. "
In addition he explained the benefits of the new product: ‘This technology offers, which need solar manufacturers. By us developed process for the production of selective emitter has for our Searching by far the lowest production costs and therefore our Help customers improve their profitability. We are pleased that with Bosch, Conergy and Yingli both here in Germany as well services in China to demonstrate the production suitability able. "
