FlexiCoat Solar Cell Coating System

Ultrasonic Coating System for Solar Cell Manufacturing

The FlexiCoat solar cell coating system is an inline programmable 3-axis small footprint platform designed for depositing active layer solutions, suspensions, and nanosuspensions in CIGS, CdTe and other thin film solar cell production.

Applications include but are not limited to:

Ideal for mid-level production volume, the FlexiCoat SC employs robust ball-screw slides driven by precision servo motors. Any Sono-Tek nozzle can be integrated. Spray patterns are easily shaped, ranging from 2 – 50 mm (0.08 – 2″) wide. Several integrated liquid delivery options are available, depending on the system configuration.

Ultrasonic nozzle benefits:

  • Highly homogenous coatings resulting in greater cell efficiency
  • Up to 80% reduction in material consumption
  • Non-clogging design results in minimal servicing and downtime
  • Precise, repeatable spray patterns that are easily shaped
  • Highly controllable spray produces reliable, consistent results
  • Corrosion-resistant titanium and stainless steel construction
  • No moving parts to wear out

The FlexiCoat Inline system features:

  • Windows®-based programming software
  • Teach pendant with trackball for easy axis motion and programming
  • Offline programming capabilities
  • 500 mm x 500 mm x 100 mm (19.69” x19.69” x 3.94”) range of motion
  • Programmable 3-axes coordinated motion via stepper motor drive
  • Non-volatile memory for storage of up to 30 programs
  • Can be configured for spray up or spray down applications
  • Wide range of delivery rates from .02 ml/min and up
  • Exhaust Sensor

FlexiCoat SC Benefits:

  • Precise substrate uniformity with repeatability down to ±2%
  • Small footprint standalone system
  • Can be configured with SMEMA conveyor
  • 500 x 500 x 100 mm (19.69 x 19.69 x 3.94”) range of motion
  • Pathmaster® Windows®-based programming software with recipe storage
  • Remote trackball teach pendant
  • Coordinated motion in all three axes simultaneously

Optional Equipment

  • IR Heat, Heat and/or Vacuum Plate
  • Ultrasonic Dispersion Pump
  • Continuous Syringe Pump
  • SMEMA Conveyor
  • Laser Pointer
  • 4th Axis (rotational)
  • Camera (Passive Vision)
  • Low O2 Environment

Nozzles can be integrated with the following air shaping technologies:
