Singulus Signs Contract For CIGS Production System
Singulus Technologies has signed a new contract for the development of the next generation of manufacturing equipment with its long-standing customer Avancis, Germany, a wholly owned subsidiary of China National Building Materials (CNBM).
Singulus Technologies has been working with Avancis since 2008 on the development and optimisation of its CISARIS selenisation equipment. The common goal is to further reduce production costs in cooperation with the customer and to increase both cell performance and production performance.
Stefan Rinck, chairman of the board of Singulus commented: "Our CISARIS selenisation plants are an important step in the entire production process. CNBM's CIGS thin-film technology will meet even greater demands in the future through the use of new equipment."
The production capacity for CIGS cells in China is expected to rise significantly in the coming years. Singulus Technologies participates in all major investments in China with machines for the different CIGS processes.
