An interview with Mike Anderson, Sales Team Leader, Custom Rollforming Corporation (CRC Solar). SPDN: Tell our readers about your company. What's your main line of business? MA: CRC Solar roll forms customized steel solar racking components such as posts, purlins, support beams and angles to assist with any solar project needs. CRC Solar's clients benefit directly as a result of many years of experi- ence manufacturing simple to complex shapes. Capabilities include work with light to heavy gauge stock, pre-punching and inline punching. Up to 16 passes and strip widths to 24"; and Inline TIG Welding and Flying Cutoffs. These and many more attributes allow CRC Solar to complete projects with a high degree of satisfaction. SPDN: What would you say makes your company unique? CRC: A RELIABLE PARTNER FOR ANY SOLAR VENTURE An interview with Dr. Charles Turk, President and CEO, OAI. SPDN: Solar cell research and development and manufacturing is on the increase. How has OAI's Solar Simulation and Test business been over the past 12 months? CT: Under the leadership of Dr. Mohan Bhan, Head OAI Solar Product Division, the demand for OAI's solar simulator and I-V test products has increased more than five times in the past 12 months. This is because OAI is able to engineer products for var- ious customers' needs and many solar cell applications such as DSSC, organic, c-Si, CPV, multi-junction and thin films. In the past 12 months, OAI has introduced several new products for testing both solar cells and panels. The solar business is outperform- ing our Semiconductor, MEMs and Microfluidic exposure system business. SPDN: What has been the main driving force for this growth in the last year? Campbell Scientific manufactures dataloggers, data acquisition sys- tems, and measurement and control products used worldwide in a wide variety of research and industry applications. The company's mission is to satisfy the instrumentation needs of their customers by providing versatile and reliable products that are rugged enough to withstand harsh, remote environments, while pro- viding precision measurements. With nearly 40 years of scientific sensor development and datalogger manufacturing experience, the company is an industry leader in producing flexible and highly robust measurement systems with low power requirements. Campbell Scientific offers several pre-configured and custom automated data acquisition systems that are specifically designed for solar monitoring applications. A full range of pre-configured and/or custom turn-key systems are available for photovoltaic (PV) and concentrat- ed solar power (CSP) applications to service all solar resource assessment and power Quickscrews International has been steadily creating a full line of mounting products to meet the needs of the most common residential roofs in America. For general installation, one must remove the tile where the hook will be, locate the rafters and carefully pre-drill a hole, secure the roof mounts with bolts/screws and seal in order to prevent water from penetrating. Sometimes one must chip the tile to allow it to sit flat along the other tiles. All of this can be done within five minutes, especially when one has the right product. For flat tile roofs, Quickscrews supplies two easy and effective hooks – 180° and 90° hooks with a 38mm height. These can slide in and out from under the tile until there is no gap between the tiles. Once the location is set, do a felt paper flash underneath the tile and build off the hook. When it comes to Spanish or curved tiles, the 90° Spanish roof hook supplied by Quickscrews is the most popular when installed with batons.
