Steve Harshbarger, VP of Electronics and Advanced Energy, will be traveling to Shanghai, China for the 5th Annual PV Expo, scheduled to take place February 22-24, 2011, at the Shanghai New International Expo Center. His presentation, titled "Ultrasonic Coating Technology for Thin Film Solar Manufacturing, an Economical Alternative to CVD / Sputtering," will highlight the benefits of ultrasonic coating technology for thin-film solar cell manufacturing, including process benefits and major economic advantages. Mr. Harshbarger will explore the necessity of cost effective criteria in the investment into pilot lines and capital equipment for CIS, CIGS and CDTe manufacturing lines.
Chris Cichetti, Senior Applications Engineer for Sono-Tek’s Electronics and Advanced Energy Division, will be traveling to Tokyo, Japan, to deliver a presentation on the technology benefits of ultrasonic spray systems for depositing carbon black inks and other catalyst suspension onto fuel cell membranes. He will speak during the technical conference at the 4th International Power Generation Expo, scheduled to take place March 2-4, 2011 at the Tokyo Big Sight.
At the show, Sono-Tek will exhibit ultrasonic spray technology for solar cell manufacturing in conjunction with Altech Corp. Ltd. in Booth E28-11 at the PV System Expo, a concurrent show hosted a the same venue.
Sono-Tek is the world leader in the development and application of liquid ultrasonic atomization technology into nozzle systems and spraying and coating application systems. Compared to conventional pressure spraying methods, the company’s ultrasonic nozzles do not clog, reduce liquid usage, waste, and environmental impact while achieving much more precise, uniform, thin film coatings. Sono-Tek is continually developing new applications for its unique technology, replacing wasteful practices in a world that is growing ever more environmentally sensitive.
