ludes products for fabricating crystalline-silicon (c-Si) solar PV cells, as well as high throughput roll-to-roll deposition equipment for flexible electronics, packaging and other applications. The technologies and products offered in this segment comprise: Solar Cell Manufacturing: C-Si cell manufacturing involves multiple steps, one of which is screen printing the solar cell contact structures. The coamny’s printers are the major systems for this process step. The company’s Fine Line Double Print process enables solar manufacturers to produce cells with less paste, better quality and higher cell efficiencies than conventional single print cells. Roll-to-Roll WEB Coating: The Roll-to-Roll coating systems provide production solutions for packaging, flexible electronics and security industries. WEB systems utilize PVD, thermal evaporation, CVD, and e-beam technology to deposit tiny layers of metal onto flexible substrates. The company’s products include Baccini Systems; and TopBeam, TopMet and SmartWeb Systems. Customers The company’s customers include manufacturers of semiconductor chips, liquid crystal and other displays, solar PV cells, and other electronic devices. The company’s customers, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited, accounted for approximately 18% and 15%, respectively of the company’s net sales in 2015. Strategy The company’s long-term growth strategy requires continued development of new products, including products that enable expansion into new markets.
