Manufacturing Process for SIT Solar Façade Panel Systems
Fletcher, Bretlan; Foley, Neal; Neumann, Jeff; Thompson, Tim
AbstractThe main goal of this design project is to develop a semi-automated process to assemble structurally integrated transparent (SIT) solar façade panels. These 6’ by 12’ panels consist of a honeycomb-like core sandwiched between two transparent sheets of polycarbonate or glass with a UV-cured methacrylate adhesive. The current manual process for applying this adhesive is slow, imprecise, and messy. The challenge is to develop a process that uses machinery to accurately and neatly apply and cure this adhesive.
