What makes us unique ...
LPKF SolarQuipment - a success story
Based on the first customer requests in 2006 we started to develop our basic laser scriber concept. We received the first order end of 2006, these scribers were delivered in summer 2007. In the years following, our thin-film business grew along with the general boom in photovolatics. We supplied laser scribing systems to all three major thin-film technologies, CdTe, CIGS and aSi/µSi. Despite the consolidation in the PV market, we were able to successfully acquire a very large order for thin-film scribing equipment in 2011. Since then we have further devleloped, produced and successfully commissioned more than100 laser scribers worldwide.
Let's shape our future together
Thin-film manufacturers appreciate our dedication to their business. We are supporting our customers on the road from technology and application development via scribing system design to installation and commissioning and sustainable product support in production. One major part of maintaining availability is our well organized 24/7 service support in the countries where production takes place.
Always a step ahead
We help our customers to stay ahead in their market environment and stay ahead even in comparison to crystalline based PV. Competitiveness in PV production depends on minimizing the €/Wpeak ratio. Our Allegro systems substantially contribute to minimize the enumerator in this equation by providing highest throughput avoiding parallel systems and providing a maximized uptime. The denominator is increased by the Allegro's superior accuracy to minmize dead zone and thus to maximize module output.
