NORTH BILLERICA, Mass., Feb. 3, 2011 — BTU International will introduce its next-generation thermal processing equipment in Booth I-33 at the upcoming International Power Generation Expo. This event is scheduled to take place February 16-18, 2011 at the Kintex - Korea International Exhibition Center in Goyang, Korea.


BTU's new TRITAN™ dual-lane metallization firing system will be introduced to the Korean market. This state-of-the-art system features increased throughput at 3600 wafers per hour, an edge support transport system, and a temperature spike faster than 3 seconds. The 90 MW metallization firing system also features BTU's unique TriSpeed™ technology. TriSpeed allows users to take advantage of superior ramp rates ― up to 200şC per second ― while not compromising the drying and cooling sections of the profile. The three-belt, three-speed system provides revolutionary control of profile development.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
