The tool, which cost $1.65 million, can ink 100 feet of solar cells a minute. The ink used is Nanosolar’s trademark nanoparticle ink.

The machine delivers solar cell with efficiencies of up 14.5% efficiency.

Company CEO Martin Roscheisen said the speed can be increased to up to 2000 feet per minute.

“At the 100 feet-per-minute speed shown in the video, that’s an astonishing two orders of magnitude more capital efficient than a high-vacuum process: a twenty times slower high-vacuum tool would have cost about ten times as much per tool,” he also said, in a press release.
