Conveyor system ramps up solar panel production by 1000%

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Belt Technologies has announced that its customised stainless steel vacuum conveyor belt system, installed at a solar panel manufacturing facility, has resulted in a production increase of 1000% over the course of one year.

“We’re extremely pleased with these results,” said president of Belt Technologies, Alan Wosky. “To develop and produce an automated conveyor system that could allow them to ramp up their production rates in such a drastic fashion is a major accomplishment.”

The conveyor belt system will replace manual manufacturing methods that had a slow turnaround time and inconsistent results.

Key features of the conveyor system include a specially designed vacuum conveyor; the vacuum allows the belt to smoothly release the solar panels with minimal handling at high temperatures.

Belt Technologies anticipates an increased demand for automated conveyor systems as a means to improve production rates across multiple industries, including food service, medical device manufacturing, robotics, and more.
