M10 Industries and SI Module show new developments for the solar industry
Joint presentation for the M10 Solar Campus at the Intersolar North America in San Francisco: The Freiburg-based company group, consisting of the mechanical engineering company M10 Industries AG and the solar module manufacturer SI Module GmbH, will be showing its product range for PV automation and building-integrated photovoltaics between July 11th and 13th 2017 (Booth 9011).
Kubus MTS 5.500: Innovative production technology for the photovoltaic industry
The M10 Industries present new features at the Intersolar: “After winning the Intersolar Award 2016 for our soldering machine in the photovoltaic sector last year, we can now present it with a ten percent increase in performance”, says Gregor Reddemann, co-founder and CEO of M10 Industries. The high-performance stringer “Kubus” is now soldering 5,500 cells per hour and thus achieves an annual capacity of 190 megawatts for module production. It is the world’s only tabber-stringer that can connect all the cells for an entire module in a single soldering process and operates without interruption. “With Kubus, the cost is further reduced and the performance is increased. The high-performance stringer is ideally suited for the international photovoltaic industry, to maximize their ROI emphasizes Reddemann. The system will be presented on this year’s exhibition at the “Innovation & Application Stage.
Colourful facades with “Saphir-Skin” photovoltaik panels
This year, SI Module will focus on photovoltaic panels for building integration (BIPV): “Our latest product innovation is the frameless glass-glass panel “Saphir-Skin”, which is ideally suited for the design of facades. Thanks to the general approval for overhead installation we see many interesting projects coming up”, explains Gregor Reddemann, Managing Director of SI Module and M10 Industries. The solar manufacturer, specializing in special module design, uses “Saphir-Skin” to apply colour to the facade: The solar module offers a multitude of colour variants and the front glass, which is printed with a special pattern, appears as a homogeneous coloured surface. The individual solar cells are almost invisible, but the remaining power yield of almost 90 percent compared to previous solutions is very high. “With the use of glass-glass panels, architecturally appealing facades can be realized, which also produce solar energy”, assures Andreas Kotterer, sales manager at SI Module.
Smart connection technology for photovoltaic modules
If desired, the SI Module also uses smart connection technology for solar modules: Whether module optimization, monitoring on the module level or fire protection – smart connection technology offers safety and control at the module level and guarantees maximum performance.
