The need

There is a requirement for unique, low cost, dry texturing volume production technology for the PV solar cell manufacturing industry that leverages the cost savings of diamond-wire cut multicristallyne wafers and novel wafer technologies. 

The solution

ADE© technology is a unique, low cost, dry texturing volume production technology for the PV solar cell manufacturing industry. It enables manufacturers to differentiate their offerings in terms of both cost and performance, while fully leveraging the cost savings of diamond-wire cut multicristallyne wafers and novel wafer technologies. ADE is a novel, proprietary technology patented by NINES PV. Unlike RIE (Reactive Ion Etching), ADE does not require any vacuum or plasma.

The value proposition

• High throughput capacity - 250 MW per tool.
• Scalable and sustainable PV manufacturing for future generations.
• Small tool footprint.
• Suitable for all PV cell wafer types.
