MINNEAPOLIS, USA: CyberOptics Corp. announced that it has entered into an OEM agreement with a global supplier of state-of-the-art solutions for photovoltaic (solar) cell manufacturing.
CyberOptics has received an initial order for its CWA30 cameras totalling $550K, for units to be delivered in the first and second quarters of 2010.
CyberOptics’ CWA30 Solar Wafer Alignment Camera performs accurate high-speed alignment measurements within the wafer print nest. The CWA30 can align a broad range of wafer technologies, including selective emitter, metal wrap-through, and print-on-print. The CWA30 also has the ability to perform traditional wafer edge alignment of both monocrystalline and polycrystalline wafer materials.
CyberOptics has leveraged its core technology, developed over 25 years serving the electronics assembly market, to enter a new market space. Kathleen P. Iverson, CEO and chair, commented: “We are extremely pleased that our advanced optical alignment solution was chosen for this OEM solar cell manufacturing platform. The application of our technology will improve the quality and increase the speed of solar cell manufacturing.”
