North Vancouver, BC, May 21, 2019 – Aurora Solar Technologies Inc. (TSX.V: ACU) (the “Company”)is pleased to announce that it has received a repeat order to supply a major China-based manufacturer of high-efficiency PERC solar cells. This new volume order is for fifteen DM-110e measurements systems. The systems will be shipped in June/July 2019.
“We are pleased to have been awarded significant follow-on business from one of the largest solar cell manufacturers in the industry,” said Gordon Deans, Aurora’s Chief Executive Officer. “This continuing order stream is indicative of both the renewed growth in the Chinese solar manufacturing market, and the fit of our business strategy and products for manufacturers focused on cost-effective high yield PV cell production,” he continued.
Aurora’s DM-110e was launched as a less expensive version of our DM product line, to address the price-sensitive market for the automation of manual sheet resistance measurements. The DM-100e is typically used by manufacturers for more limited testing after diffusion and, like all of our DM products, is a reliable non-contact system that prevents cell damage during testing, while providing high measurement accuracy and excellent repeatability.
