How to Better Convey a Solar Panel for Increased Production Capacity

U.S. solar panel manufacturers set new production records over the last few years but are still not able to meet local demand. In 2022, less than 15% of U.S. solar installations were sourced from domestic producers. Government initiatives aim to increase solar manufacturing capacity drastically, with the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) setting a 50 GW production target for 2030.

Irregularly Shaped Products Are Hard to Convey Without a Zero Contact Zoned Conveyor

In applications where you need to convey, manipulate, or orientate irregularly shaped products, sometimes it is useful to utilize a system design that can adapt accordingly. This is particularly evident when you want to convey and accumulate assemblies, but they cannot tolerate contact with each other or associated backpressure of accumulation.
