Production of solar panels - better and more cost-efficient

Reis Robotics presents the latest developments for quality assurance and cost savings in new and existing fully automated production lines for solar modules.

Reis Robotics will once again demonstrate their quality and cost reduction capability. Reis Robotics is a company known worldwide for its reliability in the field of automated production of solar panels. Since 2005 renowned solar panel manufacturers worldwide have been relying on both flexible and standardized module assembly systems of this supplier from the Frankfurt area. Meanwhile more than 130 installed Reis automated systems are producing solar modules for more than 6 GW annually of additional solar power.


Reis knows every necessary production process step of solar panels because the company itself helped developing them on the basis of their automation and handling know-how. As a result, every customer will get an individual solution based on standards with best possible price/performance ratio.

So, single production cells are provided as well as complete production lines - from project planning to commissioning. At customer's request the options include manual, semi-automatic or fully automatic production systems for crystalline silicon, thin film, and solar thermal module production. Eight subsidiaries worldwide ensure constant high integration results, after sales service and customer service.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
