Rehm Thermal Systems Visu2 software brings new Best-in-class capabilities to Solar Cell Metallization

Rehm Thermal Systems recently announced the launch of an advanced new series of firing systems for solar cell metallization to complement their recently updated line of drying systems. The RFS and RFS-D Fast Firing Systems and the RDS 2100 and 3000 drying ovens feature Rehm's Visu2 software which drives a range of advanced process features and thermal control to enable PV manufacturers to move their processes to an entirely new level of efficiency and yield.

Visu2 incorporates process and product traceability tools, remote diagnostics and an extensive product library within an intuitively designed interface that dramatically accelerates set up time and reduces operator training. Extensive system documentation is available with a few keystrokes, and Visu2 offers password protected security levels as well as multilingual operations, data recording and maintenance logging.


Process and product traceability are supported via barcode and data recording of all relevant process parameters with time stamps. With its CCS (Capability Control System), Rehm Thermal Systems offers the ability to monitor process capability during the production process. CCS is based upon the measurement of temperatures in all of the oven's heat zones for each individual cell, as well as measurement of conveyor speed. CCS automatically translates the data into creates control charts where both momentary results and long-term trends are displayed as graphics.

Marc Dalderup, Rehm CCO explains further. "Though the Rehm brand name might not be widely recognized among PV cell manfacturers, 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 best-in-class process philosophy are now being applied to our entire range of metallization systems. Our technology and experienced global support network offer significant opportunities for PV manufacturers to move to the next level of yield and efficiency."

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
