Wafer Separtation


The fully automated system include a separation and cleaning unit for processing the wafers in a trouble-free and cost efficient manner.

In designing its wafer separation unit, DECKER was inspired by a creature that moves easily on smooth surfaces: the Gecko. You can benefit now from this superior technology – inspired by nature! Wafer separation is a key element for automation in the photovoltaic production – and is therefore crucial for competitiveness.

Gecko system characteristics:

Fully automatic handling of wet wafers
Comprehensive adhesion, with no punctiform pressure
Throughput of max. 3,000 wafers/h
Wet chemical processing feasible
Wafers are kept wet
Optical inspection and automatic sorting of broken wafers
Universally applicable, including for thin wafers as small as 120 µm


Advantages:

Significant increase of production capacities
Consistent higher quality
Considerably reduced production costs
Drastically reduced wafer breakage
100 percent usage rate of the final cleaning unit
