- First machine for CIGS/CIS modules with a market size of 1200 x 600 mm in the order backlog
- SINGULUS adds an additional important component to its offerings for CIGS/CIS
Kahl am Main, September 11, 2012 – The SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES AG (SINGULUS) starts the active marketing of vacuum coating machines for thin-film solar cells and presents the technology to the professional attendees at the 27th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (27th EU PVSEC) in Frankfurt from September 24 to 28, 2012.
A long-time cooperation partner for the development of new, more efficient CIGS/CIS thin-film solar modules sets up a new inline semi-commercial production line for CIGS/CIS cells for market-customary module sizes of 1200 x 600 mm and amongst others has ordered a first vacuum coating machine for this size from SINGULUS. The new machine has the particular feature that it can be used for the vertical vacuum coating of glass substrates. Hence, SINGULUS develops a new work area in the sharply growing thin-film photovoltaics market and expands the offer of production equipment for the manufacturing of CIGS/CIS cells.
Dr.-Ing. Stefan Rinck, CEO of SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES AG, comments: “Following the recent delivery of an F&E machine, we can now offer such a line with process know-how and therefore continue to strengthen our position as a development partner for thin-film solar manufacturers.”
At the 27th EU PVSEC in Frankfurt numerous other product innovations will also be presented for the work area of photovoltaics.

SINGULUS continues to expand its activities in the business segments Solar and Optical Disc. The goal is to attain a leading position in the silicon and thin-film solar technology as a machine supplier as well as a development partner for new cell concepts and to maintain the market leadership in the Optical Disc segment for production equipment for the manufacturing of dual-layer Blu-ray Discs. The business activities in the division Semiconductor are extensively strengthened in the course of the apparent growing market for MRAM semiconductor technology. In addition, the company reviews other sectors and work areas, where new market segments can be developed on the basis of the present know-how in the area of vacuum coating.
