Turnkey module line 5 - 50 MW
Rimas offers smart turnkey module manufacturing lines up to 50MW. Based on smart Rimas technologies it is possible to create a (semi) automated high standard turnkey solution , for a very acceptable price. Rimas combines self designed technologies for handling, transferring, framing and testing, with A-class stringers, laminators and sun simulators. Depending on the available factory building dimensions, the layout can be adapted; One straight line, L-shaped, U-shaped, etcetera. The Rimas lines can be designed for single or multiple module sizes.
To make the module manufacturing market accessible for starters, Rimas has designed a special layout. It is a semi automated solution with a limited capacity.

Post lamination equipment
|Throughput:|| Minimum of 40 panels/hours |
• Laminate inspection
• Junction box placement
• Flash testing
• Automatic label placement
• Automated connection of all functions
|Global dimensions:||22x3 meters|
|Laminate sizes:||From 1400x600 up to 2000x1300 mm|
|Options:|| • Automatic buffering/stacking |
• Automatic cutting
• Automatic taping • Automatic load of frame parts
• Automatic smoothing of corners (without filing!)
This line is a good example of the post lamination lines we offer. It automatically transports the laminate through the line with the use of a revolutionary moving beam concept. It ensures a smooth and fast transport of the laminates and keeps the laminate in position at all times. The concept can easily be extended with options to automate the line further and reduce labour costs if necessary.
|Throughput:||Solutions from 10 to 60 modules per hour|
|Functions, depending on version:|| • Fixed or flexible dimensions |
• Fixed or flexible dimension
• Pneumatic or hydro pneumatic press functions
• Fit for various connection types
o Silicone or other glue type
o Screwed corners
o Pressed corners
o Pressed and clinched corners
• Automatic or manual laminate load and unload
|Global dimensions:||Small framers of 1&x2 meters, large framers 2x3 meter (footprint)|
|Laminate sizes:||From 1400x600 up to 2000x1300 mm. Depending on the model a set of press beams for each framer.|
|Options:||Automatic load of frame parts on some models|
Rimas is experienced in building several solutions for framing, both standard and custom solutions can be offered. We have built solutions for various different frame types and connection solutions. The best framing result is usually obtained with a framing solution exactly fitting your frame design.

|Options:||Inline 24/7 - Under development (Q1 2009)|
RIMAS participates in the joint venture RUV Systems BV which specializes in crack detection in PV mono and multi crystalline wafer, cell and module manufacturing. The Resonance Ultrasonic Vibrations (RUV) Technology is the most reliable form of crack detection in a production environment. In such an environment the ROI could even go down to three (!) months. RUV is non destructive, fast and has a reliability up to 95%. Currently there are offline solutions available. In 2009 RUV Systems will come up with inline crack detection. RUV has its research facilities in Tampa Florida.
