(August 5, 2010) — Sono-Tek Corporation, provider of ultrasonic equipment used for alternative energy product manufacturing, will highlight its ultrasonic coating equipment, including a high-speed ultrasonic reciprocating coating system, HyperSonic, in Hall 4/Level 2/A45 at the 25th EU PVSEC in Valencia, Spain from 6-9 September 2010.
The HyperSonic system is designed to coat large area solar glass (up to 122 cm) with uniform, thin film anti-reflective (AR) coatings. Sono-Tek’s ultrasonic coating technology applies an optimum anti-reflective layer, maximizing light available for conversion and increasing transmission over the sun’s incident angles.
Traditional CVD and PVD for solar glass coatings are expensive, slow batch manufacturing processes. Pressure nozzles are capable of spraying anti-reflective suspensions; however, they have critical process limitations. Significant overspray and clogging, along with poor deposition control and inconsistent uniformity are major
The HyperSonic system incorporates Sono-Tek’s precision ultrasonic atomizing nozzles with a robust, high-speed reciprocator (up to 2m/s) designed for industrial volume manufacturing. Featuring user-friendly control of system functions using Windows-based software, including programming and recipe storage, HyperSonic easily retrofits over existing conveyorized systems.
