                  Our Mission and History

                  The Teknisolar team is made up of professionals that have over 170 years of cumulative experience in the manufacturing of glass lamination equipment, and our lamination solutions have been developed in association with leading world experts and university professors in fluid dynamics and heat transfer.

                  Our first automated multi-level pilot laminator, finished in April 2010, had five levels and was on display in September 2010 at the 25th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition in Valencia (6 – 10 September 2010). Since then, we have developed new generations of laminators that moved us away from the use of membranes and the use of multi-levels. Our newest generation of membrane-less laminator, the RobostakTM Gen. V, has been built to guarantee a higher quality lamination process in a shorter cycle time. This machine also boasts a unique versatility so manufacturers can process both glass-glass and glass-backsheet crystalline modules or any other type of module including thin-film and CIGS on the same laminator.

                  Teknisolar’s mission is to give our clients a competitive edge in the solar panel market by designing and manufacturing high-performance, low-maintenance equipment for photovoltaic production lines. Our focus in 2018 is on inserting the best lamination technology in the world into quality guaranteed production lines manufactured in Europe.

                  We are committed to making solar energy the most sustainable solution in the world. To reach this goal, we understand that the production of photovoltaic modules must be cost-effective and there must be an increase in quality of materials and processes. These are changes that we believe require careful studying. This is why Teknisolar has invested over a million euros in research and development, in order to guarantee a bright future for all.
