As a high-tech equipment manufacturer, Manz AG realizes new product characteristics with its technological expertise and rapid implementation of innovations and contributes in significant ways to increasing the productivity of its customers. Today in focus: The SpeedPicker from the SAS series in its third generation. The fully redesigned automation solution was specially developed for handling crystalline silicon wafers in the manufacturing of solar cells.
Manz thus extends its product offensive to the market for crystalline silicon solar cells with flexibly configurable standard machines. SpeedPicker is the latest offering from the SAS series; an automation solution for almost contact-free handling of solar cells throughout their entire production process.
The Reutlingen-based high-tech equipment manufacturer, with 30 years of experience in the solar industry, has specialized in recent years primarily in production equipment for manufacturing CIGS thin-film solar modules. “We still consider CIGS technology the most promising in terms of potential efficiency increases and cost reduction,” says Eckhard Hörner-Marass, CEO of Manz AG. “However, we see that also the established manufacturers of crystalline solar cells have a great need to upgrade and further develop their existing production lines worldwide and to build up new production capacities. We develop and produce the SpeedPicker at our China site in Suzhou. Like this we are as close as we can get to our customers and their requirements. Furthermore we can offer the high quality standard of Manz to locally competitve conditions.“”
