GP ISO-TEST .Waf / Testing tool for solar wafers


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

Laboratory tool for quality inspection of wafers in solar cell manufacturing. GP ISO-TEST .Waf combines all components for testing the insulation resistance between front and back side of a wafer. After opening the lid, the wafer is inserted into the Teflon shell and is analyzed by the integrated test pins during the closing process. Display and light signal inform about the quality of the wafer. The design combines cost-efficiency and longevity in a full-metal housing. The ergonomic tilt simplifies the insertion of the fragile wafers, offers a comfortable screen position and plays with the contrasting materials of aluminum, glass and Teflon.
