Inc. announced today that Motech Solar, one of the world's leading
producers of crystalline silicon (c-Si) solar cells, has installed and qualified
an Applied Baccini back-end line for double printing applications at its volume
production facility in Tainan, Taiwan. Applied's recently announced Esatto
Technology on the Baccini system will be used to manufacture Motech
Solar's new c-Si solar cell design.
Dr. Kuo En Chang, president of Motech's Solar Division, stated, "We've
successfully used Baccini systems for cell production for five years. We recently
installed Baccini's new Esatto Technology for double printing our new
cell architecture and have had outstanding results. As a long term collaborator
with Applied Baccini, we look forward to continuing our close relationship for
"We are pleased to be collaborating with Motech to further optimize the
solar cell configurations in their technology roadmap," said Davide Spotti,
