Cosma Auto-Chassis Line Developed to Take On Solar-System Work

November 1, 2009

Solar-array manufacturer Skyline Solar, Mountain View, CA, has begun commercial production of the racking and structural components of its new high-gain solar (HGS) arrays at the Cosma metal-stamping facility in Troy, MI. Cosma and Skyline Solar collaborated on product design and materials optimization, including the development of the HGS structure so that it would fit into Cosma’s standard plant layout developed for large-volume metalforming and assembly.

According to Skyline Solar, each HGS array consists of two main components: a reflective rack with integrated tracking, and four rows of high-gain solar panels along its edges.

Cosma’s initial production line is expected to yield 1000 units per month.
