Bosch Rexroth Corporation

Rexroth focuses its global application experience on the automation of production and assembly lines for the photovoltaic industryBosch Rexroth has just released a new brochure describing its automation solutions for the photovoltaic industry. Rexroth’s electric drives, controls, pneumatic, linear and assembly technology can be used throughout the manufacturing process of solar cells and modules. Rexroth’s modular automation system simplifies operation, plus reduces training and maintenance times.

Rexroth helps machine manufacturers and system integrators speed up the entire engineering process through perfectly coordinated automation system interfaces.

One example is the contactless linear motion system, which carries highly sensitive solar cells through process chambers via an externally mounted linear motor, which simplifies the system design. Rexroth’s TS 2pv transfer system conveys thinfilm and wafer-based solar modules without vibration.
