Recharge Batteries in the Sun – Recreation or Work?

In summer, many people are looking for relaxation and holidays – while solar panels are now particularly productive. FOBA’s motto “Bring products to life by harnessing laser technology” also applies to this future-oriented technology of energy generation, because a durable inscription on the individual components such as wafers or thin-film solar cells with glass or metal surfaces helps in their clear identification and traceability.


Pulsed fiber lasers not only meet marking requirements on mono- or polycrystalline silicon layers, but are also able to cut out structures with high precision.

Characters or data matrix codes are created using the engraving or color change method. The fast and economic laser marking guarantees best readability and lasting durability with minimal impact on the sensitive surfaces.
