Jabil provides innovative clean technology manufacturing expertise to customers in the industrial and energy sector. Jabil manufactures 800 MW of solar modules per year for various customers at their facility in Kwidzyn, Poland.

“The Bürkle Ypsator® Lamination Line is a high efficiency tool with a high uptime and high yield. We added 2 Lamination Lines Ypsator® 1722-7 and increased the overall number to 6 of these Lamination Lines in our factory in Kwidzyn, Poland. It is very important to have a good lamination tool since the PV industry is very price sensitive and the overall market conditions do not allow any insufficient operation or equipment. The Bürkle equipment is very reliable and we are very happy with the provided service and support”, says Jean-Marie Siefert, Business Unit Director PV at Jabil.

The Bürkle Multi-Opening Lamination Line Ypsator® is available in different sizes and configurations with 4 to 10 openings. For the lamination of glass-backsheet modules the lamination process is carried out in a vacuum membrane press followed by a cooling press. For the lamination of glass-glass modules (either thin film or crystalline cells) Bürkle offers a unique lamination process. The lamination process is split into 2 steps. In the first step the modules are pre-laminated and sealed. The final lamination is carried out in a hot press with top and bottom heating platens which results in a very uniform heating and reduced edge pinch of the modules. The cooling is carried out in a separate cooling step.

Sven Kramer, Sales Director PV at Bürkle mentions that “A profitable operation of a solar module manufacturing facility is possible in Europe and a European manufacturer can compete with Chinese operation costs. The Ypsator® Lamination Line reduces the overall required floor space and allows Jabil to have a high volume production facility in one factory hall with a minimum foot print. Lower manufacturing and operation costs are the decisive advantage of the Ypsator® Lamination Line.”
