Freeman Schwabe Machinery (FSM) launches Solar Cell Quality Testing Equipment

Share Article

Freeman Schwabe (FSM) has expanded into Solar Power Industry, supplying Turnkey Solar Module Production Machinery and Solar Cell "Micro Crack" Detector Equipment.

FSM has evaluated the Renewable Energy Industry as a significant manufacturing market opportunity.

Freeman Schwabe Machinery (FSM) has a successful history of Business Growth & Innovation going back to 1892 and has developed its current business of manufacturing
precision die cutting machines to be a recognized leading supplier with a global presence and worldwide service capabilities.

Greg DeFisher President & CEO of Freeman Schwabe explained, "FSM has evaluated the Renewable Energy Industry as a significant manufacturing market opportunity."

Greg added "Freeman Schwabe Machinery (FSM) has invested time and resource understanding the Technology and Manufacturing skills required in the rapidly growing Solar Energy Industry. Freeman Schwabe now provides high tech & high quality Turnkey Production lines for Manufacturing solar modules." FSM believes Crystalline Silicon provides the optimal efficiency, product life performance, raw material supply, and market share for small businesses. FSM supplies crystalline silicon solar module production line, a turnkey operation, which is ideal for new entrepreneurs in Solar Power or for production & manufacturing expansion.

The FSM Micro Crack Detection Systems allow manufacturers to easily identify microcracks that would otherwise go unnoticed by a visual inspection - therefore reducing rework and improving yield of production.

  • The Solar Module Cell Micro Crack detection system has a Module & Cell String Inspection Capability, Software Controlled I/V input and High Speed Imaging.

The Solar Cell Micro Crack detection system has Fast Adjustment for 5" and 6" solar cells, Auto Cell Positioning Alignment and is Software Controlled.

Greg DeFisher explained, "Maintaining consistency and high quality manufacturing standards of solar cells and modules is key to producing a quality product. With FSM's experience in Manufacturing Machinery and Precision Equipment, at FSM we understand the importance of quality control and quality assurance and we've incorporated these quality controls in the solar module manufacturing equipment that FSM supplies.

Greg stressed, "And at the center of the solar panel efficiency is the quality of the solar cell. During the solar panel manufacturing process it is essential to set up quality controls to detect cell cracks, that lower solar module efficiency output."

"Testing solar cells can be a labor intensive quality check, but with the new technology of Micro Crack Detection Systems, solar module manufacturers can improve the quality and efficiency of the product produced, while also reducing costs."

Please Note: Greg DeFisher President & CEO of FSM and Will DeFisher of FSM - Renewable Energy Division will be attending Solar Power International Convention in Anaheim from Oct 27th.
