Wafering and Inspection

Advances in wafering and inspection technology are paramount to meeting the solar industry’s cost objectives, because silicon and wafering represent over half of the total cost of the completed module.

Applied Materials is the market leader in solar PV wafering, offering a comprehensive line of wire saws including squarers, croppers and wafering systems. In addition, advances in wire technologies and related processing techniques are accelerating customer roadmaps towards lower cost.
