InnoLas Solutions GmbH, German supplier of laser equipment for micro material processing, looks back to a very successful start into the year 2017. With order entries from the PV industry worth over ten Million Euros already in Q1 the company expects a significant growth rate on a year-to-year base. Key drivers for the strong growth are the continuous high demand for the Laser Contact Opening (LCO) process for PERC and the increasing interest in the Laser Doped Selective Emitter (LDSE) process for advanced p-type solar cells. InnoLas could strongly increase its market presence by winning a couple of new customers from various Asian markets, including tier-1 customers from China. Amongst these orders is also InnoLas’ new ILS-TTnx high-throughput laser platform, which is going to be officially announced at the SNEC exhibition in April.
“This strong order entry doesn’t come unexpectedly,” said Ernst Hartmannsgruber, sales director of InnoLas Solutions. “We did our homework steadily by always looking for the most cost effective process solution for the various laser applications in the PV technology. Our proven laser processes for LCO and LDSE are setting a benchmark in the industry since years and with our new ILS-TTnx high-throughput laser platform we are already ahead of the ITRPV roadmap. Being early in fulfilling the ever more stringent requirements of the market is always paying off.”
