The PV module industry may leave a deep impression on people due to its ups and downs in development. Now, the industry has gradually entered the rational stage with the great tide of development.
China’s rapid development of PV module industry has made European and American countries feel the pressure, so the global PV module market has set off a wave of “De-centered”.
At present, China entrepreneurs are making steady progress in the field of raw materials, batteries and module, but in Horad’s opinion, the “De-centered” of China PV module equipment manufacturers haven’t started yet.
PV module production’s TQCM
In the process of industrialization of a technology, the most important factor is equipment. Since the official establishment of the PV module business department in 2006, HORAD has witnessed the development of PV module, from the manual assembly production to the fully automated production, of the entire process chain today.
At that time, China solar cell market was in the pattern of “Two sides out”, that is, the production equipment and materials were all dependent on foreign countries, and the market was also dependent on foreign countries. The domestic PV module industry needed to constantly improve the technical level and substantially reduce the production cost to achieve the goal of replacing traditional energy.
In the backdrop of the “Two head out”, HORAD through active research and development, seamless docking with customer’s technical team, every week there are new models machine technical seminars, and every month have new version prototype electricity debugging, commissioning finished free for users to get the valuable opinions of user feedback. . And after all of these to build a batch of domestic belongs to an innovative at the time of the equipment.Because the domestic labor cost is cheaper, the domestic manufacturer produces achieves the foreign level to have the price advantage, opened the domestic market quickly.
Whole series of PV production equipment
In 2008, PV module industry experienced a wave of low tide, but HORAD believed that backward technologies and high costs were the root cause of the low tide, and the high-end demand of the PV module industry was actually constantly increasing or even in short supply. HORAD withstands the pressure to exploration so many years ,realizes the equipment automation to efficiency reaching the international advanced level finally.
At present, Horad has become an international leading manufacturer of solar PV module production equipment, which mainly dealing with automatic material loading and testing, cell string layout, auto-welding, module packaging, EL&VI tester, auto-framing, IV tester, high-pot tester, autopackaging line, etc. HORAD have a independent research and development, design, production and construction, domestic and foreign after-sales long-term service and other comprehensive strength, solar PV module module production enterprises, to provide high efficiency and large capacity of the overall solution.
The PV module equipment of Horad, already has whole series of PV module such as Monocrystalline silicon, Polycrystalline silicon, Silicon-based thin film, Copper indium gallium selenium, Gallium arsenide, Cadmium telluride, which involving the production of 24 pieces /32 pieces /36 pieces /48 pieces /60 pieces /72 pieces /96 pieces modules, etc.
A bellwether for Industry 4.0
The highest degree of automatio for module production line in China: LONGI Ph-1 module workshop be located in Xi’An CHINA ,which workshop is compatible with the Common module/Half cell/Imbricate cell/Double glass module, to realizing intelligent material distribution, the whole process tracking of all consumables, equipment remote monitoring, automatic docking modular functions, fully auto-packaging line, to achieve the greatest possible authors efficiency for LONGI.
HORAD was jointly with LONGI and other client enterprises for the project, to approval project of industry 4.0 of MIIT of China (See Note), and passed the final acceptance smoothly.

In 2018, the state launched the “531 new policy” for PV module industry, hoping to force the PV module industry to reduce costs and increase efficiency as soon as possible, by means of accelerating subsidy regression and scale limitation. HORAD deeply aware that the single market boom was highly volatile, and that companies had to take the initiative in global positioning if they wanted to be “strong and strong”.
HORAD is confidence for the realization of this goal: HORAD has begun to deepen the equipment agency cooperation and after-sales team layout in India, southeast Asia, Europe and North America at present. And HORAD has formulated a 10-year action plan to finally achieve the global layout of equipment production & sales & after-sales service in addition to R&D.
