baker s silicon wafer processing technologies address a pressing industry need
Baker’s Silicon Wafer Processing Technologies Address A Pressing Industry Need
  • High-speed, high-yield continuous-flow, conveyorized wet process systems
      • Decreased handling increases yields; uses less chemicals when compared to batch processing
  • Baker is one of three suppliers worldwide with the know-how to deliver these systems
      • Process chemistry
      • Handling of fragile materials
      • Management of difficult chemicals
  • Baker is developing patentable improvements
      • Improved guide systems to significantly decrease broken wafers
      • High speed systems capable of much-higher throughput
      • Lower maintenance and chemistry consumption
  • Currently in discussions with three major solar companies for near-term projects
baker has unique technologies for thin film pv
Baker Has Unique Technologies for Thin-film PV
  • Unique roll-to-roll plating and metallizing systems
    • High-volume systems for creating precision metal coatings and finishing on flexible backings
    • Supplied equipment for all facilities of a Fortune 100 company producing very-high-volume inkjet printer cartridge flex-circuits
  • Currently is discussions with two solar companies for roll-to-roll thin-film PV metallizing lines
baker is uniquely positioned to advance metallization state of the art for solar cell production
Baker Is Uniquely Positioned To Advance Metallization State-of-the-Art For Solar Cell Production
  • High-volume, high-efficiency systems are needed to replace current silver-paste or batch metallization systems
    • Metallization currently largest bottleneck in silicon-wafer solar cell production
    • Silver-paste based systems also consume expensive silver paste which can be replaced with lower-cost metals like copper
      • Silver paste also has poor conductivity, requiring large traces which shadow more silicon than advanced metals, reducing efficiencies
  • Baker is a world leader in continuous-flow metallization systems for PCB applications
    • Orders won based on quality of plating and system throughput
    • Deep experiences in diverse applications creates store-house of techniques to solve yield and throughput challenges
    • Baker has strong ties to industry leading chemistry suppliers like MacDermid and Rohm & Haas
