Stainless steel belt and solar modules

In Japan large solar power plants have been made here and there.
Its safety is evaluated.

It is interesting to know that stainless steel belts are used in many process of solar module manufacturing.

First is band saw. This steel belt is a knife to cut long silicon ingot into several pieces.  Belt is set in the cutter and rotates in high speed to cut silicon.  These silicon pieces are set in wiresaw cutting machines and becomes silicon slices.

These slices are made silicon wafer and wafers are combined together in a stringer.  Here wafers are connected with each other by automatic soldering of inter-connectors.  This stringer process is done on steel belts that are flat and tough in heat environment.

Stainless Steel Belt, Flat Suction Belt

In suction belts belt surface flatness is vitally important.
If there are waves, suction becomes weak and belt surface is not flat.
In other words, the same vacuum does not bring the expected flatness.

Waves are often found along the welding line.
But we add process on material before welding so that the best condition for butt welding is prepared.

The  line in the center is a welding line of this steel belt.
Belt thickness 0.3mm x belt width 428mm.

Stainless Steel Belt Suction Conveyor at The Imaging Soceity Japan

Dymco made a speech on our stainless steel suction conveyor and its flat belt surface at the annual meeting of Imaging Conference JAPAN 2014.

Stainless steel belt surface height ranges 150 microns under free-suction state, while it ranges 50 microns under suction.

Thesis on stainless steel belt flat surface due to suction
