Solar Assembly Applications with PVA’s Integrated Systems to be Demonstrated at SNEC
Cohoes, NY – February, 2010 – Highlighted at this year's SNEC PV Power Expo will be PVA’s MX4000 Gear Pump Meter-Mix Dispensing System integrated with a PVA350 Benchtop Dispensing System. Primarily demonstrating two component adhesive applications for junction box (J box) attachment, the combo can also be used for receiver sealing and optical interface for CPV and BIPV components, and potting of inverter modules.
On its own, the MX4000 is a robust system designed to control non-abrasive meter-mix dispensing for one and two component materials and is ideal for solar applications such as J box attach, J box potting, frame seal, rail attach, CPV packaging, liquid cell encapsulation, and inverter module potting. Always customized to the specific application, the gear pump processes a wide range of adhesives and sealants while providing continuous material flow with no recharging necessary. Repeatability and dispense volume accuracy are assured via closed loop servo drives that enable the operator to program the mix ratio, shot size, flow rate, pressure control, and other functions via a menu-driven HMI.
PVA’s MX4000 can be configured as a stand-alone manual system or, as demonstrated at SNEC, integrated with a PVA dispensing robot for semi and fully automated processes.
The PVA350 is a flexible three or four-axis robot that is suitable for coating and automated dispensing applications, as well as specific solar applications such as; J Box attach, solder paste, CPV receiver sealing, CPV optical interface, CPV thermal interface, and inverter potting. The PVA350 features a robust overhead motion platform employing brushless DC servo motors and precision ball screw slides. Encoder feedback on all axes assures a closed-loop process that is consistent and reliable.
All systems are backed by a 24-hour global service network, including regionally trained technicians for fast response times.
During SNEC PV Power 2011, 22 – 24 February, delegates from PVA and their local representative, Schmidt Scientific Taiwan Ltd., will be available, at booth #E1208-210,
