Consistent quality of output and process stability are essential for profitability. In order to achieve it, all steps of a production process needs to perfectly fit to each other and to the used materials.
Deep analysis helps to decide for the best cell design and layout, paste selection and the optimal printing and firing process. A good partner needs to contribute expert knowledge in the application of pastes but also deep understanding of manufacturing processes. This broad experience can only be gained by a long-lasting track record in the industry.
In addition, advanced infrastructure at the supplier can make the difference for a competitive edge. For example, an own application lab enables a supplier to simulate the specific production settings in order to find individual solutions. With a global footprint, application engineers can also join the customer’s experts at his site and directly collaborate for best results. Ramp up cycles are accelerated and at the same time provide better results.
Many paste supplier focus on the metallization paste as such. However for the full process perspective a higher commitment is needed. With complementing services like scientific cooperation for best cell design or complementing products a partner helps you to leverage your goals.
