FRAMINGHAM, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Re:Build Manufacturing, a leader in the design and production of custom automation and industrial products, advanced materials, and technology solutions, announces the launch of the RBM600 Solar CZ Puller designed for the manufacture of high-purity ingots used in the photovoltaic solar materials industry. This state-of-the-art equipment showcases Re:Build’s dedication to driving innovation, fostering American manufacturing, and delivering products that are designed and built in the U.S. and meet the highest standards of safety and performance. The RBM600 is a testament to Re:Build’s mission to reinvigorate American manufacturing. Every aspect of the RBM600’s development—from its inception, design, and fabrication to its final assembly— takes place domestically.
At the onset of the development of the RBM600, Re:Build’s engineering and design team identified safety as the first issue to be addressed. The new system is designed to meet or exceed the most stringent U.S. safety standards and provide a secure and reliable environment for crystal growth operations. With built-in safety features and comprehensive real-time risk assessment, users can carry out crystal growth processes confident that both personnel and the equipment are protected. The RBM600 offers industry-leading, integrated advanced process monitoring and data insights capabilities that maximize output and minimize downtime, making the technology distinct in the field. The real-time insights into the crystal growth process enable operators to push the boundaries of solar crystal growth efficiency with optimized performance, enhanced yields, and informed decisions. The RBM600 comes standard with the capability for a 600Kg charge size producing up to a 300mm diameter ingot. With the optional top-off feeder, the ingot length can be as much as 3.2M long. In addition, the RBM600 will come standard with a hot zone and product recipe to enable immediate production following installation.
“The team behind RBM600 has some of the most experienced engineers with years of applied knowledge in developing sophisticated equipment solutions for multiple crystal growth technologies and is reinforced with the depth of our Re:Build Digital group, which helps integrate advanced software and intelligence into the system architecture,” says Miles Arnone, CEO of Re:Build Manufacturing. “Our hardware and process expertise combined with our unique software and digital tools put the RBM600 at the forefront of crystal growth technology. The team’s dedication to innovation and their deep understanding of robust, industrial process development are evident in every aspect of the RBM600’s design and functionality. We are proud to play a role in the future of photovoltaic manufacturing in the U.S. and to create more jobs in a high-growth, high-tech industry.”
The RBM600 Solar CZ Puller marks a new era in solar crystal growth equipment, solidifying Re:Build’s status as a driving force in reshaping American manufacturing. With innovation, safety, and expertise at the core of its design, the RBM600 paves the way for a brighter, more sustainable future. Re:Build Manufacturing is now taking orders for the system for delivery by the end of 2024.
