Surprise yourself with our effective solutions for handling, control & transfer applications

You may be surprised to see some of our great solutions for handling, control & transfer applications

Originally part of our electronics team our specialist photovoltaic experts are highly trained, extremely knowledgeable with a huge breadth and depth of experience in the solar sector.

Whilst not all photovoltaic production processes are the same, some common requirements are shared:

  • Manipulation accuracy – due to the delicate nature of the cells
  • Fast handling – a requirement for large scale manufacturing
  • Uniformity – critical for the deposition layer
  • Precise temperature control – increasingly critical with the adoption of laser applications
