Solar collector production line
Short project description:
The facility manufactures what is currently the most efficient solar collector available on the global market.
With a welding speed of approx. 10m/min, the laser-welding plant welds the absorber (made from aluminium) onto the meander (copper pipes).
The individual welding points are spaced at a distance of 2mm. After the laser-welding process, the absorber moves on to the next manufacturing stage. The pre-drilled frame is taken to the bonding station.
The 1-component glue with accelerator is transferred onto the frame via an XYZ portal. The back is then pressed onto the frame and the frames are hardened using a buffer system.
After this manufacturing phase, the heat insulation, connectors and welded absorbers from the laser-welding machine are positioned into the frame and clipped into place.
This frame is now once again transported to the bonding station where the glue for the solar safety glass is applied. The glass is pressed on after the bonding process and discharged after a hardening period in the buffer. A completed solar collector is discharged every 5 minutes.
