What links metrology with solar energy?
Clean power generation from solar (PV) cells is becoming an increasingly important part of the energy mix.
Motion control is involved at every stage of the PV manufacturing process and is particularly essential for high-precision screen printing. This article explains the unique role of encoder position feedback in the development of solar cell technology.
