Location: Port Klang , Malaysia
Current status of the equipment: warehoused and crated

Here is the capacity calculation:- 
1200 X 4watt cells = 4,800 watts (these are LDK 4 watt Solar wafers) 
4,800 watts X 24 Hr = 115,200 
115,200 X 7 days = 806,400 Watts 
806,400 X 52 Wks. = 41,932,800 watts 
41,932,800 X .8 production = 33,546,240 Watts 
The tools have been de-installed and are presently stored in a climate controlled environment. 
The tools are not crated so you may do a visual inspection if desired. 
There are some video showing the line on youtube. 
Here are links to the videos:
This system is used for the production of solar cells by the silk-screen printing process.
This process allows the production of:
-Glass protections
The loading of the system is carried out by a conveyer with vision system. Wafer cells arrive from a conveyer to a Baccini 
conveyer and here, by a vision system the cells are aligned and put on a walking beam, by adjusting the speed of the first
conveyer you can obtain loading heaps of 4 or 6 cells.
Printing head resolution is approx 0.5nm


20 MWp
Model: Solar

Description: Qty 2 Module Manufacturing Lines
Version: 450 cm x 230 cm
Vintage: 01.06.2008
Quantity: 1
Sales Condition: as is where is
Lead Time: immediately

Comments: Please find hereafter the information of 2 production lines of solar panels to sell.

The lines are still installed, and regularly maintained, but not currently producing. We recommend inspection of the equipment to fully understand the conditions of the machines.
Dismantling and re-installation service is available.

The first line was manufactured and acquired in 2007 and started production on 2008
The second line was acquired on 2008.
In 2009 and 2010 the lines were in full production.

At the end of 2011 the production ceased due decrease of demand.
The lines start to produce again from June 2012 to September 2012, when they ceased production definitively.

The acquired technology is SPIRE SOLAR, a partnership between SPIRE and NISSIHINDO, and the oven for lamination is NISSIHINDO

Full production requires about 15 people


Each line has a capacity of 12 MGW, so total capacity is 24 MGW.
The Cell sorter has a capacity of 20 MGW and the simulator of 72 MGW (can serve 6 lines)

The assemblers can produce around 600 cells/hour (depending obviously on the sizes of panels).

In the laminators the maximum size panels are 450 cm x 230 cm.

Please find attached an excel with the inventory of the machinery and pics of the equipment.

The lines are fully automated , except the last step (frame construction).

I look forward to getting your equipment requests and available equipment lists very soon.
Thanks so much for your kind attention.
