XsunX Business and Technology Newsletter
Hello from the XsunX team,
In our last update we outlined how the CIGSolar™ system would soon begin to take on a new and more complete appearance as we began attaching the various load locks, in-feed systems, and other componentry. We are well underway with this process and we have added pictures and information to our CIGSolar project update page where you can see the progress being made.
The pictures we provided this week look as if the system is beginning to grow in scale, yet the CIGSolar™ evaporation chamber is just over ten feet long making it small in comparison to many commercial thin film solar deposition systems. We have focused our process technology on highly manageable smaller area techniques that do not require enormous systems; however, we didn’t sacrifice any production capabilities.
The CIGSolar™ evaporator chamber is designed to initially process nearly four million CIGS cells annually while still allowing for normal maintenance and customary yield rates. The system can be paired with multiple other CIGSolar evaporators to meet the demands of even the largest commercial production environment.
As a first build, there has been a lot of time spent on pre-assembly and testing that was necessary to verify that fit and function met our design requirements. While this added to the time necessary to assemble the system, these types of testing and verification procedures help to stream line and expedite future system builds.
We are now working to attach or install the balance of the major components necessary to prepare the system for testing of the vacuum and fully integrated material handling systems, control systems, and heating assemblies.
The CIGSolar™ system build has come a long way and we still have a lot of work to accomplish, but as is typical with building disruptive technologies, momentum has picked up so stay tuned and we will provide more updates as soon as possible.
Thanks again for your time, support, and interest. Have a great week.
The XsunX Team
