Solar PV

A lean solar solution

Fully automated. - Modular. - Upgradable. - Flexible (complete geometry, number of parts). -

The need

Challenges to the solar industry include the competitiveness of the assembly of solar panels in low-cost countries, the relocation of some photovoltaic (PV) manufacturing in Europe, reduced money investment, low total cost of ownership (TCO) and reduced labour, all due to very specific robot use.

The solution

The solution is a special machine for photovoltaic panels assemblers. The product is scalable and modular, much smaller than classic models, and requires fewer components and less energy, maintenance and manpower. It is flexible (complete geometry, number of parts), fully automated and upgradable, and offers increased reliability quality and efficiency.

The value proposition

• Capital expenses (capex) /2 vs. state of the art.
• Only one person / unit vs. five people.
• Operating expenses (opex) / 5 vs. state of the art.
• Small footprint equipment 80m² vs. 400m².
