Innovative Dosing Solutions for Photovoltaic Production

Increase Process Reliability – Lower Costs

(PresseBox) (Töging a. Inn, ) ViscoTec Pumpen- u. Dosiertechnik GmbH appeared for the first time as an exhibitor at PVSEC from 5 to 8 September in Hamburg, Germany. EU PVSEC is recognized as the world's most important platform for exchange between science, industry and global PV solar markets. Focusing purely on photovoltaics, the exhibition was an ideal communication platform for ViscoTec to present its dosing and conveying solutions developed specifically for the requirements of solar module production.

ViscoTec offers specialized dosing solutions for all production steps that work with adhesives, sealants and metal pastes. Such a system significantly increases process reliability, while also lowering costs - thereby ultimately leading to a significant increase in production efficiency.

For manufacturing silicon wafers, the ignots need to be glued onto carrier plates so that they can be finely sawn. The most commonly used adhesives for this are two-component adhesives, which must be applied absolutely free of air bubbles. With the ViscoMT series of emptying units, ViscoTreat-Inline degassing and the ViscoDuo-V two-component system, ViscoTec can provide a complete system for this production stage that guarantees both bubble-free product feed as well as application of a constant, precise mixture of two-component adhesive.

Wafers are metallized with aluminium and silver paste using screen-printing systems. These must be continuously supplied with abrasive and highly viscous paste. For the small containers predominantly used in these applications, ViscoTec offers the ViscoMT-D, a version of this emptying system developed specifically for such silk screening systems, which can be easily integrated as a feed unit into the existing system control technology.

Since PV modules are exposed to extreme weather conditions, and must accordingly satisfy stringent demands on quality, perfect dosing results during production are directly proportional to the long-term success of the manufacturer's business. The most commonly used media for gluing module parts and casting connection sockets are two-component adhesives and potting compounds. Special material properties such as high viscosity and filler content place very high demands on dosing systems. The endless-piston principle of ViscoTec dosing pumps has been developed specifically for such applications. ViscoTec dosing systems can be easily integrated into various processes, thus ensuring high quality bonding and potting in automated production lines.

ViscoTec Pumpen- u. Dosiertechnik GmbH

ViscoTec Pumpen- u. Dosiertechnik GmbH manufactures systems required for conveying, dosing, applying, filling and emptying medium to high-viscosity fluids. The technological leader headquarter is in Töging a. Inn (Bavaria). Furthermore, ViscoTec has subsidiaries in the USA, in China, Singapore and in India and employs about 200 people worldwide. Numerous sales partners all over the world complete the international distribution network. Next to technically sophisticated solutions to even the most complicated application, ViscoTec is the single point of contact to deliver all components for a complete system: from emptying to preparing and to dosing. This guarantees successful interaction of all components. All fluids showing a viscosity of up to 7.000.000 mPas can be conveyed and dosed almost pulsation-free and with extremely low shear. ViscoTec offers comprehensive consulting for every application and, if required, extensive tests will be carried out in close cooperation with the customer. The dosing pumps and systems are perfectly adapted to their respective application whether it is the food sector, the e-mobility industry, the aerospace field, the medical technology, the pharmaceutical industry and many other branches.
