As a leading global supplier of high quality solar cells, Ningbo Solar has reinforced its commitment to driving business growth with the purchase of a further 50MW worth of photovoltaic metallization lines from DEK Solar.

The announcement comes just months after Ningbo Solar’s purchase of eight metallization lines from the mass imaging leader. Following an extensive evaluation period which yielded impressive results, Ningbo Solar was impressed by the DEK PV1200 line’s ability to achieve 6-sigma process capability at a resolution of ±12.5 micron for maximum repeatability and accuracy. In addition, Ningbo Solar was also impressed by DEK’s commitment to rapid delivery and the exceptional service facilitated by local Centres of Excellence. In fact, according to Ningbo Solar President Zhou Jianhong, DEK is one of the company’s top vendors for customer service.

Commenting on the new order, DEK Solar China Service Manager, Speed Yan, explains: “We were obviously delighted to receive this additional order from Ningbo Solar and I’m extremely pleased that the PV1200 is proving to be such a valuable addition to its solar cell production environment. Here at DEK, we take pride in the fact that our global infrastructure means that we’ve not only dramatically cut industry lead times, but also, that we can uphold an award-winning level of customer service and support. As a result, our customers receive complete solar solutions – the foundations they need to stay ahead. Ningbo Solar knows what it means to expect more with DEK.”

DEK Solar’s PV1200 photovoltaic metallization line combines the award-winning PVP1200 screen printer with purpose-designed loader/unloader, buffering, inspection and wafer flipping solutions. Driving throughput in the production of high-quality and energy-efficient solar cells, the metallization line delivers superior print accuracy making it ideal for depositing features ranging from sub-100-micron current collectors to low-resistivity bus bars. Completely future-proof and equipped for continual optimisation in line with evolving manufacturing requirements, the PV1200’s special features include dedicated handling for thin wafers for low breakage rates and maximum yield.
