Singulus Technologies AG of Kahl am Main, Germany (which makes production equipment for the optical disc and solar sectors) has signed a new contract for the development of the next generation of manufacturing equipment with its long-standing customer Avancis GmbH of Torgau, Germany, a subsidiary of China National Building Materials (CNBM) that specializes in copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) thin-film photovoltaic cells.

Singulus has been working with Avancis since 2008 on the development and optimization of the CISARIS selenization equipment. The common goal is to further reduce production costs in cooperation with the customer and to increase both cell performance and production performance.

“Our CISARIS selenization plants are an important step in the entire production process,” says Dr Stefan Rinck, chairman of Singulus’ management board. “CNBM’s CIGS thin-film technology will meet even greater demands in the future through the use of new equipment,” he reckons.

The production capacity for CIGS cells in China is expected to rise significantly in the coming years. Singulus says that it is involved with all major investments in China with machines for the various CIGS processes.
