Optimiert für das Handling von Solarzellen und Wafern: das High Speed H-Portal von Festo

Fast and reliable repositioning thanks to the high-speed planar surface gantry

The fragile wafers frequently need to be repositioned. As they are transferred from one production step to the next, the wafers will be unloaded from a machine and transported to the next processing step. This must be done at maximum speed, and at the same time reliably and accurately in order to maximise the output.

The wafers must be touched as gently as possible in order not to "stress" them. As the wafers have photosensitive surfaces, no residues must remain on their surfaces so that the best use can be made of the light. Permanent checks, which don't interfere with the throughput, complement the repositioning process.

The award-winning high-speed planar surface gantry provides the best solution for this task:

Designed for handling solar cells and wafers, the planar surface gantry covers a rectangular working space with up to 4 degrees of freedom. The Bernoulli gripper has been adapted to transporting the fragile wafers. It ensures smooth, almost contactless transport. The integrated intelligent compact camera checks the wafers for damage and correct alignment.
