Machine automation in the solar industry

Optimum control of production machines in thin film factories

Many different process steps and automation requirements must be considered when manufacturing thin film photovoltaic modules. For example, solar cells are constructed using laser technology. Therefore, control mechanisms must meet exacting speed and precision requirements. The continuous quality control of each production step is as important as an integrated process and high-precision machines.

The modularity of Totally Integrated Automation allows existing production concepts to be modernized easily and adapted to meet future requirements. Open interfaces and bus systems simplify the connection of individual components as well as the intelligent integration into upper level production planning and warehouse management systems.

All Siemens systems are completely integrated and distinguished by their modular design. This complete harmony of products has unique advantages, including user-friendliness, scalability, efficiency and cost savings.
