“We are extremely satisfied with the line supplied by 3S because we are
able to produce a high yield on a very low breakage rate,” explained
D.V. Manjunatha, managing director of Emmvee Photovoltaics, which has
already ordered the tools necessary to expand its module output to 50
The new crystalline-and metallurgical-silicon line at Emmvee
is comprised of an automatic string soldering station from Somont, a 3S
laminating system, and a high-precision module tester from Pasan.
soft-touch soldering process allows gentle handling of the cells, thus
reducing the breakage rate to a minimum, while 3S’s patented hybrid
heating plate technology permits module producers to achieve
temperature homogeneity in an extremely short heating time and at a
Three more Indian companies have placed
orders for a turnkey production line for solar modules or are about to
sign a contract, according to 3S.
