SBI Bulletin: Thin Film PV Manufacturing Equipment Global Manufacturer Profiles

Notice
This publication has been discontinued on September 7, 2012.

Abstract

A selective methodology was employed for these company profiles due to the high number of component, machinery and equipment manufacturers active in the supply chain for TFPV production lines. The leading TFPV manufacturing equipment suppliers by sales volume were selected based upon their representative standing within the industry. Additional companies were selected as representatives of emerging regional TFPV manufacturing equipment industries worldwide in places such as Eastern Europe (Hungary - GreenSolar) and Asia/Pacific (Japan/China/Hong Kong/Taiwan - ULVAC, Tokyo Electron, Apollo Solar Energy Technology, Mirle Automation). North American component and equipment suppliers provide a thorough representation of global participation within the industry.

The equipment manufacturer profiles also represent a comprehensive selection of the various product components and equipment required for TFPV production lines. Profiles are included for companies that manufacture components such as laser sources, vacuum equipment energy sources, pumps, vacuum chambers, furnaces and filters as well as engineered equipment pieces such as physical vapor deposition (PVD) equipment, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) equipment, working panel conveyance and handling systems, process automation systems, laser tools, and wet process equipment. Major TFPV turnkey production line suppliers are also included in the profiles.
