Azur Space Orders Tool From 3D-Micromac

News

MicroPRO XS laser micromachining system will help to increase production of III–V (GaAs) solar cells

3D-Micromac AG, a maker of laser micromachining and roll-to-roll laser systems for photovoltaics, medical devices and electronics, has announced the order of microPRO XS laser system for processing of III-V (GaAs) solar cells from Azur Space Solar Power GmbH based in Heilbronn.

Azur Space is developing III-V (GaAs) solar cells for satellites and terrestrial concentrative solar systems. More than 550 satellites have been equipped with Azur Space cells. The order of the microPRO XS is to increase production.

"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,” said Jürgen Heizmann, CEO of Azur Space “We are looking forward to installing this system on our production site.”

3D-Micromac's microPRO XS is an adaptable laser micromachining system that is mainly used in industrial manufacturing settings. Due to its high flexibility it is ideally suited for all applications of laser structuring, laser cutting, laser drilling and laser welding. Depending on the chosen process module and the installed laser source, a variety of materials can be processed.



AngelTech Live III: Watch the virtual event ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Live III was broadcast live on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and features online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

The event covered the whole spectrum of key developments affecting the compound semiconductor industry. 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. This was considered a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

With 3 interactive sessions over 1 day AngelTech Live III proved 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.
