Ypsator / Multi opening lamination line


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

Photovoltaic modules are delicate devices. They have to be protected from surface damage by lamination. That is the task of the Ypsator, which can laminate several modules simultaneously. Its four units: charging, laminating press, cooling press and discharging are placed behind a self-supporting casing, which is alike a backdrop. Its coffering reflects the theme of the solar cell. Charging and discharging units have their own prominent volume, which emphasises their special role in the process sequence. For maintenance purposes, there are easily accessible walks between chasing and machine.
