LPKF receives another order from the solar industry

After the technology company LPKF Laser & Electronics AG received a major order from a leading global solar module manufacturer in July, LPKF now reports another order with a volume of almost EUR 10 million. The new order is expected to generate revenue in 2022/2023.

LPKF has been a leading supplier of highly specialized laser systems for structuring thin-film solar modules for 14 years. Thin-film modules are characterized by high economic efficiency and are mainly used in the professional sector.

Christian Witt, CFO of LPKF, says: "With these two major orders we have strengthened our strong position in the solar market. Our laser systems enable our customers to produce more efficient solar modules at lower cost. LPKF will be excellently positioned in this fast-growing sector in the future."

With the new order, the order backlog in the Solar segment exceeds EUR 40 million. Possible risks to on-time delivery, e.g. due to logistics bottlenecks, are monitored on an ongoing basis.

LPKF is the market leader for the structuring of thin-film solar modules and contributes to climate protection with its innovative processes. Laser technology from LPKF makes the production of solar power more competitive - even without government subsidies.
