MAG to provide XsunX’s CIGSolar users with turnkey back-end process equipment and support

XsunX Inc of Aliso Viejo, CA, USA, which is developing hybrid copper indium gallium (di)selenide (CIGS) thin-film photovoltaic (TFPV) solar cell technologies and manufacturing processes, is teaming with MAG Industrial Automation Systems (MAG IAS LLC), which supplies industrial manufacturing systems, assembly and engineering services, to provide XsunX’s customers with 24/7 global service and parts support for its CIGSolar cell manufacturing lines.

XsunX and MAG have also agreed to work on specific requirements for the back-end process equipment for those XsunX customers who are requesting a complete turnkey solar module assembly line. The CIGSolar system is designed to deliver the front-end process (to make the solar cells). MAG will now work with XsunX to provide a module assembly line (i.e. back-end process equipment) that can assemble the cells into modules for a complete turnkey factory to produce CIGSolar modules.

“As a technology development company, we need to stay focused on our core competency, that of empowering our customers with breakthrough technology that incorporates the best systems and designs to address product market needs, rapid time to market to stay ahead of the competition, and pricing to make solar affordable for our partners and their clients,” comments XsunX’s president & chief operating officer Joseph Grimes. “This teaming with MAG supports that goal and helps to provide our target customer group with confidence that their systems are backed by a proven installation and support infrastructure.”
