Solar panel assembly system
It is obvious that the production of solar panels has plenty of intricacies. Various elements need to get tested throughout the production, to ensure that a faulty solar panel does not unnecessarily go further in the production process.
After understanding and analysing the production process we were able to design the entire assembly line. Together with a partner specialised in the testing of solar panels, we were able to design an in-line testing module. We designed a machine that is able to do in-line trimming (see video below). This had a drastic reduction in cycle time, and completed eliminated man-made errors. Ultimately, the entire design increased the efficiency and quality.
