The world-wide “green”, renewable energy revolution has created a boom in the solar panel market. Solar cell fabrication plants (FABs) increasingly face the challenge of creating large volumes of c-Si or thin film solar cells with consistent quality and low costs. Hence, they are especially focused on minimizing tool downtime. The FABs also closely monitor and control every step of their manufacturing process (etching, diffusion and screen-printing).
The solar FAB’s constant focus on maximizing CIGS efficiency and cell output means that factory solution and tool suppliers (OEMs) face tough SLAs with stiff penalties. They are under constant pressure to bring their tools online in the shortest time possible and ensure maximum tool availability and performance. All these factors make the perfect case for remote monitoring and remediation of Solar FAB machine tools.
