Discover XtremePrint™ technology

ASM AE’s XtremePrint technology is the first and only self-adjusting print head for solar cell metallization. Print speeds can remain high and constant, as XtremePrint automatically accommodates for variations in substrate height in real time. This novel development has numerous benefits for solar cell manufacturers and for the advancement of single and dual print processes.

Among the advantages of XtremePrint are: excellent wafer to wafer repeatability (lower standard deviation on fired front side line height and width), increased printed line aspect ratios, cell efficiency improvements by as much as 0.1%, reduced print head maintenance requirements, ease-of-use through automatic/software-controlled operations (as opposed to manual settings), better process control and extended screen life.

XtremePrint comes standard on all Eclipse metallization platforms manufactured after May 1, 2016.
