High Speed Inline Roll-to-Roll Module Production
EMC GigaSpeed™ Production Line
The GigaSpeed™ production line will manufacture the entire solar module in-line with a target speed of 30 meters per minute. Employing an eight-station production coater with a 1.5 meter wide web, the annual output of one line (at typical uptime and yield rates) culminates in 20 million square meters, equaling 4GW’s of BackbonePV™ material per year.
Printing on flexible, 100 micron Corning® Willow® Glass, the high-speed Roll-to-Roll process provides a base module which is ready for second stage junction box installation and frame, or glass-on-glass butyl edge sealant depending on product type.
Corning® Willow® Glass
Fusion formed Willow® Glass provides the inherent benefits of glass in a mechanically bendable form-factor, enabling cost-efficient device processing.
Roughly the thickness of copy paper, it’s an ultra-light weight, durable hermetic barrier back sheet and a pristine surface for printing high performance perovskite solar cells on Roll-to-Roll production lines.
