Founded in November 2021 through a joint venture between M10 Industries AG and ZAHORANSKY AG, we are driving the transition to renewable energies with compact evolutionary power. Our SURFACE stringer machine has enabled us to lay the cornerstone for module manufacturers to position themselves on a broader basis and tap new sales potential.
Backed by the know-how of 30 years in the interconnection of photovoltaic cell strips, we joined forces with Fraunhofer ISE to develop and perfect the Shingle Matrix Technology. The SURFACE serial machine connects up efficient and lead-free crystalline PV cell strips (of any type and size) using ECA and generates a masonry pattern – unparalled in the world – which covers the surface of the module.
You can put the brakes on us –
but you can’t stop us!
