The Linear Motion and Assembly Technologies group from the Bosch Rexroth Corporation is offering a free brochure describing a new class of special conveyors for solar cell manufacturing. Titled “TSsolar – Clean, Gentle,
Efficient. Ideal for Module Production,” the brochure provides details on TSsolar Conveyors, which are designed with special features to serve the unique manufacturing requirements of solar cell modules.
With the explosive growth in demand for solar power technology, manufacturers are ramping up solar cell production across the globe. Wafer-based and thin-film solar module manufacturing processes are extremely complex and sensitive,
demanding ultra-smooth, vibration-free material transport. The brochure provides details on the special technologies that Bosch Rexroth is incorporating into the TSsolar conveyor line, to help ensure they provide gentle material flow,
extremely clean, particulate-free operation, and the ability to operate in the high-temperature environments (up to 200° C) required for solar cell module manufacturing.
TSsolar conveyors are based on Rexroth’s industry-leading TS family of modular conveyors, designed for a wide range of flexible assembly and material transport applications for both automated and manual assembly operations. Rexroth's broad offering of conveyor components for transferring, routing, stopping and
positioning products of all types gives the company an ideal starting point in providing effective technologies to solar panel manufacturers.
The brochure is available to download from the company’s website at www.boschrexroth-us.com/BRLcatalogs.
