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.”
