Reliable String to Glass Layup
The GL30 layup system offers a stable and efficient automated string placement solution.
- Innovative Design loads strings onto glass
- Four Standard Configurations providemaximum flexibility to optimize product flow and reduce manufacturing wastes
- String Inspection Process detects and removes defective strings from the process flow
- Accurate String Placement to improve module appearance and reduce rework
- Centralized Operator Control so the GL30 and Xcell stringer are operated from the same HMI console
The GL30 uses key components to create accurate and reliable automated string-to-glass layup system.
- Robot with pickbar picks and places strings onto the glass panel while meeting module polarity requirements.
- Buffer and reject string trays maintain productivity if glass is unavailable or strings are defective.
- Conveyor system transports and positions glass panels within the GL30 for string-to-glass placement
An optimized layout includes one ergonomic HMI to control the GL30 and X2 Turbo.
- Ribbon Trimming for your GL30 cuts ribbon ends before glass placement. This option is a great way to reduce bussing time!
