Ultrasonic Systems, Inc., released its PV-480 system for CdTe module coating applications. The PV-480 leverages USI’s proprietary, nozzle-less ultrasonic spray head technology for thinner, more uniform coating deposition vs. conventional spray technologies. Optimized for high-volume, in-line manufacturing, the PV-480 can process glass plates up to 48 inches wide at speeds of up to six feet per minute.
The PV-480 delivers liquid coating with transfer efficiencies in excess of 90%, utilizing a traversing Ultra-Spray blade head. This versatile system is ideal for the application of low viscosity liquids especially cadmium chloride solutions and anti-reflective coatings . The system can be operated in-line or as a stand-alone process, and is easy to control via touch screen user interface. USI coating systems are industry proven with more than 2,500 systems installed worldwide in multiple markets.
