Christopher Associates' Unisonik Selected for Photovoltaic Panels

A Bay area thin film photovoltaic manufacturing company recently adopted the Japan Unix ‘Unisonik' soldering system for its large panel soldering needs.

Christopher Associates announces that a Bay area thin film photovoltaic manufacturing company recently adopted the Japan Unix ‘Unisonik' soldering system for its large panel soldering needs.


Several different methods of attaching PV ribbon were investigated, and the Unisonik was selected for its ease of use, flexibility and low cost of ownership.

The Unisonik system, developed exclusively by Japan Unix, uses a proprietary combination of heat and vibration to allow soldering to previously difficult substrates. Stainless steel, aluminum, coated or uncoated glass, and many other substrates that were difficult to work with in the past now are standard processes due to this advanced system.

The Unisonik-M uses ultrasonic waves of 60 kHz to remove oxidation, diffuse the metal into the substrate and reduce voids in the solder joints. The Unisonik-M system is a manual system for small applications or lab work, and the Unisonik-F system is a fully automated robotic soldering system for use in production environments.

Uniquely suited for soldering to difficult substrates, the Unisonik has shown excellent results in multiple areas outside the Photovoltaic manufacturing process as well.

OMG Roofing Products - PowerGrip Universal

Eliminate Solar Rack Ballast and Reduce Rooftop Material Handling. PowerGrip™ Universal (PGU) is a commercial roof mount system designed to secure solar racks and other equipment to any type of commercial roofing system. PGU provides a secure connection directly to the roof deck or structural members and is designed to reduce or eliminate ballast in solar racking systems, so there's less weight on the roof and less material handling. Made of heavy-duty cast aluminum, PGU units include a base ring which is secured through the roofing cover and into the structural roof deck, and a waterproof top plate.
