ACT Aurora Control Technologies Corp. develops, manufactures and markets inline measurement systems for the photovoltaic (solar-generated electricity) industry. The company’s shares are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange and trade under the symbol “ACU”.
Aurora’s mission is to create the yield improvements for manufacturers of photovoltaic wafers, cells and solar modules that are necessary for them to profitably exploit the increasing economies of scale in the expanding photovoltaic industry. As solar product manufacturing has grown, it has become a high-volume, low-margin industry. To operate profitably, manufacturers must continuously drive to produce the highest possible yield of the top, most profitable product grades. Aurora’s products provide the means for manufacturers to achieve this goal by providing in-line measurement, real-time analysis and control capability throughout the production line. This eliminates waste early in the manufacturing process, narrows the variations in product quality, and raises average quality level.
