Smart solar panel and mechanical engineering from Freiburg: SI Module and M10 Industries show new developments for the solar industry.

Joint presentation for the M10 Solar Campus at the Intersolar Europe in Munich: 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 building-integrated photovoltaics and PV automation between May 31st and June 2nd 2017 (Hall A1, Booth 620).

Colourful facades with “Saphir-Skin” photovoltaic panels

This year, SI Module will again 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”, 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.

Kubus MTS 5.500: Innovative production technology for the photovoltaic industry

The M10 Industries also have new features: “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 Günter Schneidereit, Managing Director 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 – so the high-performance stringer is ideally suited for the international photovoltaic industry, which wants to expand its production capacities and invest in new plants for module production”, emphasizes Reddemann.

M10 Industries supports the Georg-Salvamoser-Prize 2017

In order to promote innovations in the field of renewable energies, M10 Industries supports the Georg Salvamoser Foundation with a sum of 10,000 euros. Together with the city of Freiburg, the foundation will award the Georg Salvamoser Prize for outstanding merit in renewable energies on the Intersolar in Munich for the fourth time.

”In the late 1990s, we developed our first soldering machine for Georg Salvamoser – pioneering spirit and the belief in solar energy have linked us”, the shareholders Schneidereit and Reinhard Willi give their commitment to the foundation.
