Berlin based LayTec in-line GmbH, which develops in-line metrology for thin-film processes has announced the installation of its X Link in-line at Astronergy in China.
The tool is integrated into a production line of high-efficiency PV modules for in-line control of EVA or polyolefin cross-linking degree immediately after lamination. It allows for a 100 percent monitoring of produced PV modules.
The measured data is directly fed into the Manufacturing Execution System (MES).
The data helps to quickly optimize lamination process for better cross-linking quality by adjusting the heating zones and the duration of lamination. The result is a perfect lamination process, which is the key to high-quality modules.
The whole measurement procedure is non-destructive and does not affect the functionality of the tested modules.
