Midsummer Wins New Orders For CIGS System
- Unnamed customer to buy two new DUO fully automatic deposition systems
Midsummer, a Swedish provider of equipment for manufacturing flexible CIGS thin film solar cells, has received an order for two compact DUO solar cell manufacturing systems from an undisclosed customer.
Due to a strong demand for lightweight, flexible modules, the customer has decided to buy two new DUO manufacturing systems, which will be manufactured at Midsummer's facilities outside Stockholm, Sweden and delivered to the client end of 2017. This new order is a repeat order from this particular customer.
The Midsummer DUO is a compact, fully automatic deposition system for the manufacturing of CIGS solar panels. It is designed for operational stability and superior material utilisation. The system is used for the manufacturing of lightweight flexible panels to cater the growing needs for portable panels and roof top installations.
"Our DUO system is now the most widely spread manufacturing tool for flexible CIGS solar cells in the world", said Sven Lindström, CEO, Midsummer AB. "We have yet again shown that we are the leading provider and supplier of advanced solar energy technology solutions for the production and installation of thin film solar panels. Swedish technology is at the forefront of the race towards a fossil free planet and we look forward to the future."
Midsummer has several times been named as one of Sweden's and Europe's fastest growing technology companies.
AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!
AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
