SoLayTec produces machines that produce wafers for solar panels more efficiently. Via a complex and ingenious air cushioned system wafers are hung freely. At the same time different reaction gases in several chambers are blown over the wafer in order to increase the profit of the wafer in the end-use. This complex system of gases and flows is pressure regulated.
Different CFD studies were performed together with SoLayTec, in which Actiflow also helped SoLayTec to perform additional simulations in-house. Actiflow takes care of the necessary setup of the calculations after which SoLayTec can perform parameter studies itself. With improvement in response to the gained insights, SoLayTecs machine can produce longer and faster.
