3D-Micromac Receives Large Volume Orders from Solar Industry for microCELL TLS System Totaling More than 1.5 GW
3D-Micromac succeeds with the industrialization of its half-cell cutting process by thermal laser separation for solar cell separation(PresseBox) (Chemnitz, Germany, )
The microCELL TLS systems use Thermal Laser Separation for cleaving solar cells into half-cells. This process provides a multitude of mechanical and electrical benefits to customers. The separated cells show a significantly higher mechanical strength, better edge quality as well as lower power reduction compared to laser scribing and cleaving approaches. A module power gain of more than 1 W was seen with TLS compared to conventional scribe and break methods, in addition to the 5-7 W per module gain of half-cell module technology.
Further cementing its position as the market leader for laser systems in photovoltaics,
3D-Micromac also yesterday introduced its second-generation microCELL OTF system, the high-performance production solution for Laser Contact Opening (LCO) of Passivated Emitter Rear Contact (PERC) solar cells, which achieves a world-class throughput of 8,000 wafers per hour.
