Modules & Upstream Manufacturing

Standardizing for reliability and low costs

Solon’s Velocity MW utility-scale solar systems are built up from identical, one megawatt clusters to achieve high energy output with performance, short construction cycles, improved reliability and reduced overall project risk.

Even bigger

Degerenergie is presenting its solar tracking system Degertraker 9000NT at PVSEC. The dual-axis system is designed for 70 square meters of module surface and works with all solar modules currently on the market.

Systems for protection

Dow Corning will introduce its PV-8080 neutral sealant, which it says enables a good fit and long-term bond as well as protection against moisture, mechanical and thermal shock and vibration in framing applications.

Gripping without contact

Zimmermann and Schilp has introduced a non-contact gripper that is based on ultrasonic sound for module glass substrates. In order to create a safe transport system, the system maintains the balance between the attracting and repelling forces.

Ultralight tracking system

GeckoVoltaik is showing its single-axis tracking system ilioflex at EU PVSEC. Because of its low grammage of less than ten kilograms per square meter, it is suitable for industrial roof surfaces whose static properties weren’t sufficient for tracking systems before, says GeckoVoltaik.

Three-dimensional inspection

The new Traqu 3D inspection and measuring system by Essemtec allows for 3D metrology to professionals in the photovoltaics industry.

Six lasers, one commonality

Trumpf is set to introduce its TruMark Series 6000 at this year’s EU PVSEC.
It consists of six different, special lasers, which have one common trait: a high power and beam quality combined to produce a laser light of high brilliance.

Screw-free click installation

Mounting Systems offers the Sigma installation system for ground-mounted installation of laminates and framed modules. To reduce Sigma’s installation time even more, the company has now developed the Pi track, which it is introducing at EU PVSEC.

Edge-sealing with hot-melt

The HMA system by German based Gerold automatically applies liquid butyl (hot-melt) to enable the edge sealing of photovoltaic modules. This function is typically applied to frameless thin film modules.

Flexibility in production

The new metallization line by Dek Solar, the Eclipse platform, is said to be very flexible according to the company.
