Energy, light, power: Printed solar cells

An industry is born and grows. Keywords: Renewable energy.

Means to an end: Solar cells. Method of production: Screen printing. Required: Extremely reliable and easy-to-use screen printing stencils. No other printing process is able to produce within seconds reliable and reproducible functional layers on almost all substrates. Naturally, this requires a standardized production process, precise definition of printing parameters, exact process steps and continuous quality management.

Sefar offers screen printing meshes made to the tightest tolerances, tested in the context of your needs and continually developed for such uncompromising applications.

For specialists it has long been crystal clear: Screen printing offers the photovoltaic industry the most trusted, cheapest and fastest technology for applying metallization and passivation layers. In the process of manufacturing crystalline solar cells new ways are constantly sought to further increase the benefit/cost ratio. Sefar screen printing solutions will reduce production costs of your screen printing process with the same, if not improved efficiency – we particularly recommend the best all-rounder SEFAR PET 1500.

Why has screen printing become established as one of the main production processes in the manufacturing of dye-sensitized solar cells? It is because of the wide range and ease of selection of printed layer thicknesses, the production rate and design capabilities are above all because of reproducibility in any up-scaling process. Sefar screen printing mesh is the state of the art choice for dye-sensitized solar cell printing.

SEFAR PME – The best performing screen printing mesh

PS SEFAR PME Mesh 01

SEFAR PME is the screen printing mesh for use in the industrial environment. It is based on an innovative, high modulus polyester yarn developed by Sefar having extraordinary tensile strength combined with very low and evenly-balanced elongation. SEFAR PME sets new standards in the stencil making process. Its quality printing results are hugely impressive in the most demanding and innovative printing applications.
