Origami Solar readies second-gen steel module frame for certification testing

by admin

steel solar panel frame manufacturer origami solar announced that its second generation frame is ready for evaluation and certification testing. This second version of him is lighter and has better structural performance. Comparison with first prototype.

Steel solar module frames represent a significant opportunity to disrupt risky Asian supply chains by leveraging the region’s steel resources to end the solar industry’s dependence on imported aluminum. By sourcing domestic steel frames and leveraging the significant investment in U.S. module manufacturing capacity, we are able to reduce costs, create jobs, and take advantage of domestic content incentives under the Controlled Inflation Act. can.

“Origami Solar’s steel module frame will promote energy self-sufficiency, significantly reduce the carbon footprint of the photovoltaic industry, and enable panel production in unrestricted areas,” said Origami Solar. CEO Greg Patterson said. “Our 2nd generation frames are light and strong and ideally suited to provide excellent support for the new large modules coming to market. We designed the Origami Steel module frame to match the fit, form and function of the frame, making the transition from aluminum to steel seamless in module manufacturing and field installation.”

“We are excited to partner with Origami Solar to develop an innovative and innovative steel module frame,” said Thomas Welser. Welser Profile, a global manufacturer of roll-formed steel products. “Our goal throughout this process is to enable solar panel manufacturers to rapidly integrate and scale these frames, both in the U.S. and Europe, without materially changing their manufacturing processes. To support Solar, we are collaborating with Origami Solar to optimize designs and further innovate to meet future industry needs.”

“Steel is an abundant resource on earth and can be manufactured on any continent. Its use in trackers, racks, mounts and tubes is already widely accepted in the solar industry,” said Matthew, CEO of the company. Mr Arnold said. Unimact. “We are excited to work with Origami Solar to expedite the transition from imported aluminum to domestic steel frames.”

The Origami Solar Frame will support increased domestic recycled steel production as well as recycled or “green” steel. With performance testing by third-party labs and module manufacturers nearing completion, the second generation production-ready frames are now available for evaluation testing by module manufacturers and key partners across the solar value chain.
