Manz Automation reports EUR25m in orders

Manz Automation AG, a technology provider for the photovoltaic and flat panel display (FPD) industry, has reported that it has acquired orders and letters of intent for a volume totalling around EUR 25 million. These relate to both systems for the laser structuring and wet-chemical processing of thin film solar modules, and crystalline solar cell manufacturing machinery. In particular, the new SpeedPicker automation systems that were launched at the end of last year elicited strong demand from Asian customers, the company said.

At the same time, this highlights the trend where newly constructed factories in China are increasingly also being fully automated from the outset. Here, too, rising quality requirements and essential cost-reductions can now only be met by innovative automation systems entailing the highest level of throughput and the lowest breakage rates.

Following the company's successful certification of the first Manz OneStep selective emitter technology, it also received several follow-up orders for these systems from Chinese and German solar cell manufacturers. "Solar cell efficiency can be increased by up to 0.5% using the Manz laser systems – while at the same time incurring the lowest additional costs compared to competitor systems," the company said in a statement.
