Fiber lasers have seen an increasing level of growth in the solar industry over the last few years, especially in the manufacture of thin-film solar cells, particularly for the scribing and cutting of silicon.
This material needs to be cut finely and smoothly and can be achieved by one of our redPOWER R4 continuous wave lasers, making it the perfect choice for the industry. With quick processing times, smaller kerf widths, little dross and the ability to process different levels of wafer thickness, fiber lasers are quickly becoming the preferred choice for the solar industry; take a look at what our products can do for you below.
Fiber lasers can be used for a range of applications, a particular favourite is drilling. Working with many materials, fiber lasers are especially useful at drilling silicon wafers. These are especially used in printed circuit board and solar cell... read more >
Fiber lasers are widely used across a multitude of industries. An industry which is a heavy-duty adopter is the solar cell industry, particularly in the field of photovoltaic cell manufacturing. We go on to discuss this topic in our latest Q&A... read more >
