Innovative pneumatics in electronics
Smaller, more accurate, more compact and more powerful...
The trend towards miniaturisation creates demanding requirements for pneumatic components in electronics.
Whether it is for light assembly, the semiconductor industry or the manufacture of electronic devices - Festo has developed a special pioneering range of cylinders, valves, controllers and accessories and can thus offer maximum performance in minimum space.
Innovative pneumatics in photovoltaics production
High speed - smooth movement
Festo has been developing handling systems for transporting silicon wafers and solar cells for many years. These systems improve productivity for the manufacturers due to their high speed and smooth running characteristics.
Production of thin film solar cells
Thin film solar cells is still a very new technology but is a very promising alternative to conventional silicon solar cells in photovoltaics systems. To ensure optimum utilisation of the expensive production facilities, powerful handling systems are required to quickly and reliably link the individual process steps. The multi-axis modular system from Festo provides the appropriate components, while preassembled and tested system solutions for your handling are even faster.
Solar cell production from silicon wafers
Production of solar cells from silicon wafers is highly automated. Pneumatic drives and valves from Festo guarantee fast transportation and correct positioning of the extremely sensitive raw wafer. Vacuum generators and the appropriate suction grippers keep a secure and reliable grip on the brittle wafers during transportation
