Solar panel related machinery

There is growing interest in clean, natural, renewable energy. Focusing on photovoltaic power generation, Kitagawa Seiki is confident that we can make a contribution to society through our laminators for fabricating solar panels.

What is a solar panel?

Module composition

Components are loaded into the laminator -> Forming (heating -> vacuum drawing -> pressing -> completion)

Multi-opening laminator for fabricating photovoltaic modules


  • Multi-opening design saves space.

[Shorter fabrication time]

  • Both sides are heated at the same time for more efficient heat transfer to the module, shortening fabrication time and increasing production volume.
  • Also reduces energy consumption.

[Tray loading system]

  • Prevents damage to the modules during loading
  • No contact between the modules and the heating plates during loading ensures more uniform heating, with no temperature difference between the front and rear of the module.
  • No need for a loading belt inside the laminator, for easier cleaning and maintenance.
  • Multiple modules can be fabricated simultaneously.

Tray recovery line operation

Trays are recovered by the tray recovery unit, increasing work efficiency and saving space.

Test laminator for research and development


  • Minimum vacuum volume
    Enables quick deaeration of the module before the sealing resin softens.
  • Sliding tray system
    Safe and easy loading and unloading of modules.
  • Top and bottom double-sided heating
    Modules are heated quickly for higher quality results.
  • Equipped with sensors for gathering data
    The laminator is equipped with sensors for detecting the heating plate temperature and vacuum pressure.   
    By connecting the laminator to a recording device, data can be collected for each setting condition.
  • Compact size for installation flexibility
    Space-saving design enables the laminator to be installed even in an office laboratory room. Equipped with casters for easy movement. No peripheral equipment required.
