„In order to develop the ideal process technology for current and upcoming cell technologies we cooperate closely with our customers and research institutes.“
Helge Haverkamp, CTO

State-of-the-art integrated production solutions

Flexible equipment designs for lowest total cost of ownership

Our modular batch-type equipment designs are designed for future process technologies with economically viable upgrade options. This enables the integration of new cell concepts or alternative coating or laser processes into existing production lines.

Flexibility regarding cell technology and wafer sizes

Together with industry partners and research institutes, our R&D teams develop technologies and production processes for highly efficient p-type and n-type solar cells such as PERC, PERT, IBC or TOPCon. Our equipment is designed for all wafer sizes up to M12 as well as potentially upcoming generations.
