See the standard Syatem throughout the photovoltaics industry for Partner Spire.

You can purchase individual pieces of manufacturing equipment from Spire, or an entire Procon that provides all the equipment, supplies and training needed to establish a photovoltaic manufacturing line.

Follow the solar module manufacturing process below and select the equipment that fits your needs.

Test & Sort Solar Cells

Step 1 :: Test & Sort Solar Cells

Test and sort solar cells for optimized module performance. Cells of many types and shapes can be used in Spire manufacturing equipment. Testing and sorting equipment includes:

  • SPI-CELL TESTERĘ‚
  • SPI-CELL SORTERĘ‚

Tab and String Solar Cells

Step 2 :: Tab & String Solar Cells

Interconnect solar cells by soldering flat metal leads, or tabs, to cell contacts, producing solar cell strings. Tabbing and stringing equipment includes:

  • SPI-ASSEMBLERĘ‚ 6000

Transfer Cell Strings onto Modules

Step 3 :: Transfer Cell Strings onto Modules

Gently pick up and transfer interconnected solar cells, or strings, from storage trays onto module substrates, accurately aligning the strings to ensure module quality. Solar cell string transfer equipment includes:

  • SPI MODULE LAY-UP STATIONĘ‚
  • SPI-VAC PIKĘ‚ 660

Laminate Solar Modules

Step 4 :: Laminate Solar Modules

Encapsulate solar modules with controlled heat, vacuum and pressure to form a uniform, environmentally-stable, composite structure. Solar module lamination equipment includes:

  • SPI-LAMINATOR models with vertical-lift cover
    • SPI-LAMINATORĘ‚ 1834N
    • SPI-LAMINATORĘ‚ 1734N
    • SPI-LAMINATORĘ‚ 680N
    • SPI-LAMINATORĘ‚ 580N
  • SPI-LAMINATOR models with clam shell cover
    • SPI-LAMINATORĘ‚ 580
    • SPI-LAMINATORĘ‚ 480

SPI-FRAME PRESS

Step 5 :: Trim, Frame & Finish Module Assembly

Trim solar modules after lamination, install edge sealant and structural frames, and attach electrical junction boxes. Mount frames to seal the edges and add structure. The completed modules are rugged and water resistant. Post-lamination equipment includes:

  • SPI-AUTO TRIMĘ‚
  • SPI-AUTO FRAMEĘ‚
  • SPI-FRAME PRESSĘ‚
  • SPI-AUTO BOXERĘ‚
  • SPI-AUTO BUFFERĘ‚
