3D-Micromac receives large volume orders from leading Asian solar manufacturers for half-cell cutting systems totaling more than 3 GW

Enhanced module power gain by thermal laser separation for solar cell separation compared to scribe and break technology

3D-Micromac AG, the industry leader in laser micromachining and roll-to-roll laser systems for the photovoltaic, medical device and electronics markets, today announced that the total received order volume for its microCELL TLS high-throughput half-cell cutting tools tops 3 GW in 2019.

The microCELL TLS systems use Thermal Laser Separation for separation of standard silicon solar cells into half-cells. The ablation free process guarantees an outstanding edge quality. The separated cells show an approximately 30% higher mechanical strength. By using Thermal Laser Separation, module manufacturers are enabled to guarantee a lower power degradation value over lifecycle of the solar module. Furthermore, a module power gain of 1-2 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.

Media, analysts and potential customers interested in learning more about 3D-Micromac’s laser systems for silicon solar cell and flexible photovoltaic, including microCELL TLS, are invited to visit the company at SNEC 2019, June 4-6 at the Shanghai New Int’l Expo Center in Hall N3, booth #111.
