Gautam Solar granted patent for innovation in PV module production


Indian manufacturer Gautam Solar has earned an intellectual property right for a “tool for the bussing process of solar panels,” against the design submitted by the company’s CEO, Gautam Mohanka.

The design registration was granted by The Office of the Controller General of Patents, Designs,and Trade Marks, affirming the tool’s innovative and unique features.

Gautam Solar said its patented tool offers a host of advantages to module manufacturers, including over 50% reduction of manual work and a doubling of solar panel production capacity, at a fraction of the cost of an automatic machine. Additionally, the tool minimizes warpage, breakage, and thermal stress in solar cells, effectively increasing the panel’s lifespan.

The tool minimizes human errors and significantly improves accuracy in the solar panel production process. Operating seamlessly within a temperature range of 300°C to 450°C, it provides precise control for soldering in harmony with solar panel assembly requirements. In addition, the tool features a unique junction configuration that ensures even thermal energy distribution, reducing stress on solar cells. A thermocouple probe allows for precise temperature control.

“It is a defining achievement for the Indian solar module manufacturing industry, which currently relies completely on imported Chinese machines for their production process,” stated Gautam Solar.

Gautam Solar has 25+ years of solar industry experience with four factories in Haridwar, India, and its corporate office in New Delhi, India. The company is planning to expand its annual solar module manufacturing capacity to 2 GWp in the near future.
