Scribing Equipment (Laser & Mechanical Scribing)

Scribing Equipment (Laser & Mechanical Scribing)

Manz’s scribing systems are optimized for the highest level of precision – for every scribing process needed during the manufacture of thin-film solar modules. And Manz’s equipment can be used for both high-precision mechanical (P2, P3 for CI(G)S substrates) as well as laser-assisted (P1, P2, and P3) scribing.

During the manufacturing process, active tracking (Manz’s Inline Precision Control System) allows dead areas to be reduced by 150 µm–300 µm, a new milestone compared to other systems on the market. Doing so significantly increases the efficiency of the solar modules.

Low operating costs are just one of the many benefits of Manz’s scribing equipment. High throughput and maximum efficiency are valued by long-term Manz clients. This is primarily the result of the parallel processing, which allows tact times to be reduced while still maintaining the high level of quality.

Another notable characteristic, in addition to the high-precision processes and the high quality of the products, is the equipment’s sophisticated and flexible design. It allows the equipment to be easily integrated in completely automated production lines.
