According to the company, the new STRINGER TT1200 HS solders solar cell strings in a 2.5 second cycle on just one track. It thus outpaces its predecessor by 200 cycles and is currently the fastest single-track stringer system on the global market as teamtechnik claims. A single track means one single soldering process per stringer, less complexity, a lower requirement for replacement parts and fewer operators. Additionally, with a proven availability at over 95%, the system ensures stable production 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The stringer also uses a unique design involving a hold-down device in its systems to separate the actual soldering process from the cell-handling process. This allows teamtechnik to ensure 1400 cycles/hour, with a cycle time of 2.5 seconds with just one track. This hold-down device also ensures a safe process and perfect string geometry. At the same time, the company guarantees extremely low breakage rates of 0.1-0.3%, depending on the type of cell.
