Metal Wrap Through (MWT)-Technology

Within the field of module technology, Fraunhofer ISE offers a comprehensive range of services for product development and materials testing. We provide support for turning innovative ideas into reliable, efficient and competitive products, as well as for improving quality and efficiency in existing module and interconnection concepts.

Our research covers the integration of high-efficiency solar cells, direct contacting of the aluminum metallization, reliable soldering processes, conductive adhesive technology, rear contact and wire interconnection, laminate-free edge-sealed solar modules and detailed analysis of cell-to-module (CTM) losses.

We are able to develop, improve and test your products to meet industrial demands our excellently equipped Fraunhofer ISE Module Technology Center.
