AZUR orders 3D-Micromac microPRO XS for processing GaAs solar cells

3D-Micromac AG of Chemnitz, Germany (which provides laser micromachining and roll-to-roll laser systems for semiconductor, photovoltaic, medical device and electronics applications) has received an order for a microPRO XS laser system from AZUR SPACE Solar Power GmbH of Heilbronn, Germany for processing III–V (GaAs-based) solar cells.

AZUR develops and produces III–V (GaAs-based) multi-junction solar cells for both satellites and terrestrial concentrative photovoltaic (CPV) solar systems. More than 550 satellites have so far been equipped with AZUR cells. To increase the production of such solar cells, AZUR has now ordered a microPRO XS. The main application for this system is laser drilling and laser cutting of germanium, semiconductor and glass substrates. The flexible system will also be used for laser marking.

“During the assessment of different laser systems for our solar cell production, 3D-Micromac’s microPRO XS has convinced us with its smart machine concept, in combination with the achievable throughput rates,” comments AZUR’s CEO Jürgen Heizmann.
