Rehm Thermal Systems Launches New Fast Fire Furnaces for Solar Cell metallization

Rehm Thermal Systems recently announced the launch of an advanced new series of firing systems for solar cell metallization.

The RFS and RFS-D Fast Firing Systems offer a range of advanced process features and thermal control that enable PV manufacturers to move their processes to an entirely new level of efficiency and yield.

Just launched following exhaustive testing by the renowned Fraunhofer Institute ISE, the new Rehm RFS Fast Firing Furnace extends the company's decades of high performance thermal engineering and manufacturing experience further into the world of PV manufacturing. A complete lineup of thermal solutions for metallization now includes the RFS Firing System and RFS-D combination Drying and Firing System in addition to the model RDS series dryers. All feature industry leading low energy consumption and a compact footprint that optimizes factory space while minimizing expense.

The new Rehm Fast Fire Systems feature a host of innovative design features that enable new levels of metallization process performance, including
Very high throughput rates (e.g. transport speeds up to 6m/minute and multiple lanes) maximize productivity - vital to satisfy an escalating world demand.

Flexible transport systems that enable single, dual and triple lane handling of wafers

An Integrated residue management system that maintains an exceptionally clean process chamber and extends maintenance intervals.

Superlative profile control and process monitoring including reference products for baseline profiling.
Rehm Visu2 software including traceability tools, remote diagnostics and an extensive product library.

Unique gas management improves thermal transfer efficiency without using supplemental heaters. This reduces energy consumption and increases system insulation; all contributing to improved COO.

Separate heating and cooling zone transports, which improve the cooling gradient and shorten the necessary cooling zone length

Marc Dalderup, Rehm CCO explains further. "Though the Rehm brand name might not be widely recognized among PV cell manufacturers, we have over 200 curing and drying systems in production in factories worldwide right now. Rehm's twenty year history of advanced thermal engineering and our best-in-class process philosophy has now been applied to these new firing furnaces. Our technology and experienced global support network offer significant opportunities for PV manufacturers to move to the next level of yield and efficiency."

Lithium Ion Battery based Power Systems for Mobile Energy

Lithium Ion Battery based Power Systems for Mobile Energy

Get an efficient power supply system based on lithium technology and receive 12V/24V and 230V/50Hz simultaneously.

The Clayton Power lithium battery system can be charged from the mains via a G3 Combi - inverter/charger, an alternator while driving or from other power sources.

Our lithium ion batteries can be connected in parallel to achieve scalable power capacity and output. Connect more inverters or inverter/chargers to get a greater 230V output and even faster charging times.

Combined Inverter/Chargers
The G3 Combi - Inverter/Charger series, is a combined 230V power supply and intelligent multi charger in one compact unit.

Lithium Ion Batteries
Built-in Battery Management System. 12V and 24V - 100Ah. Scalable up to 2000Ah.

+ Powerful + Low weight + Long lifetime + Fast charging
