Solar modules easily moved
Delivery period: August 2009
Sunfilm AG, a major manufacturer of thin-film solar modules based in Großröhrsdorf, Germany, commissioned an ALFOTEC conveyor system in November 2009, which temporarily stores the front and back glass of solar modules and provides them to production just-in-time.
The system designed by Alfotec GmbH, Wermelskirchen – already the second system of this kind delivered to Sunfilm – consists essentially of two parallel four-strand chain conveyor systems. Self-supporting load carriers serve as carrier elements for the front and back glass of the solar modules, which ensure safe transport. Each of the 2,850 mm x 900 mm x 2,900 mm large load carriers has a total carrying capacity of 4,400 kg.
