Lotus Systems has
received an order from a large German solar cell manufacturer to install fully
automated wet chemical process lines for cell production. There was also an
agreement to cooperate long term, and a total volume of more than €8 million
is expected for the future. For more information about wet chemistry.
“Our innovative tool design decided it” says New Products Manager
Hans Hauger, explaining how Lotus Systems beat out several other competitors.
“We have incorporated new details everywhere – in input and output
stations, cleaning, etching and drying. All together, this makes for extremely
high productivity and conserves substances like water, electricity, and chemicals.”
The first system will be installed in January 2010.
“The photovoltaics industry needs new ideas to meet future quantity and
cost demands,” says Joachim Mink, founder and CEO of Lotus Systems. “Every
factory is different. We do not just listen to our customers well; we also do
our homework and deliver both innovation and absolute reliability. I personally
make sure of that.”
