Save the Date: PV Taiwan 2011 Photovoltaic Forum & Expo Starts October 5

Sono-Tek plans to exhibit ultrasonic coating technology for thin film solar cell manufacturing at PV Taiwan 2011, October 5-7, at the Taipei World Trade Center in Taiwan.

Ultrasonic wet process equipment continues to gain momentum in the thin film solar manufacturing world as a viable, cost effective alternative to costly vacuum deposition processes. Sono-Tek offers a full line of equipment, from research and development to pilot line and high volume production equipment for applying active and buffer layer coatings onto CIGS and CdTe solar panels.  Sono-Tek ultrasonic coating systems have also proven successful for depositing TCO layer chemistries in R&D and pilot line manufacturing.

Since ultrasonic coating systems all utilize the same core nozzle technology, scaling up from R&D to pilot line and high volume manufacturing is accomplished seamlessly. Proving process at the R&D level allows customers to optimize coating parameters at little cost, with the assurance that the same quality coatings will be achievable at high volume.
