Miyachi Unitek Offers Resistance Brazing System to Solar Industry Manufacturers

IPB-5000A ideal for PV panel manufacturing

MONROVIA, CA - Miyachi Unitek Corporation, a leading manufacturer of resistance welding equipment and laser processing systems, offers the IPB-5000A inverter power supply to provide metallurgical bonding of tin-plated copper ribbon and buss bar interconnects for PV panel manufacturing. The resistance brazing system, which consists of a power supply, transformer and brazing head, is easily integrated into most PV panel manufacturing operations.


The IPB-5000A offers 5 kHz fast feedback for the best welding control, as well as a full-color LCD to show all parameter traces for easy understanding of the welding process. The system operates in constant current, voltage or power feedback modes and is also capable of welding in combination mode to address even the most challenging application or process conditions. A pre-check function determines resistance prior to the weld, while comparator and envelope functions monitor the weld to ensure quality.

"The IPB-5000A has been successfully integrated into PV manufacturing facilities on a global basis since 2003. Its eight-year track record has delivered the measured results and process control not achievable with other technologies," said John DiGiacomo, Miyachi Unitek Regional Sales Manager.

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
