September 10, 2009
SynergX Technologies Inc. in in Laval, Quebec, a supplier of automated
optical inspection technology for the solar panel industry, today
announced nine orders for its Glass-Scan inspection systems for
photovoltaic glass. The orders come from customers in China and
Glass quality is an important aspect of the manufacturing of both
standard crystalline silicon solar panels and thin film solar panels.
Poor quality glass can disrupt the manufacturing process with in-process
breakage and can often be a reason for failure of the solar panel
after installation in the field. With twenty year plus warranties
that are being provided with solar panels, automated inspection
of the glass is the only way to guarantee quality and long term
We are thrilled to be participating in the Green Revolution,
says Ken Wawrew, president and chief executive officer. The
photovoltaic market is exciting and fast-growing.
SynergX Glass-Scan Systems provide solar glass and panel manufacturers
with a turnkey yield management and quality control solution for
the inspection of both continuous and cut sheets of super clear
and patterned glass. High-resolution camera-based systems provide
accurate detection, sizing and classification of defects, including
open and closed bubbles, black and white stones, scratches, and
edge defects. The modular design of the Glass-Scan systems means
that they can be readily adapted to all manufacturing environments.
SynergX can provide solutions at a number of stages in the
manufacturing process with its Glass-Scan Systems, says Wawrew.
We have systems for the glass manufacturers, as well as for
the factories that cut and temper the glass, and the actual solar
panel makers. This is a solution that provides the benefits of improved
quality, increased productivity and process improvement, ultimately
resulting in a competitive advantage for our customers.
