Leading Hydrogen Solutions
SITEC and Feintool will be making their first joint appearance on the European stage at Hydrogen + Fuel Cells EUROPE from April 17 to 21. Following a successful start to their cooperation in Asia, the two technology companies are also strengthening their collaboration in Europe to produce metallic bipolar plates for fuel cells and electrolyzers.
Hydrogen is considered as a central component for the energy system of the future. Metallic bipolar plates - the heart of hydrogen systems for fuel cells and electrolyzers - must therefore be manufactured economically on an industrial scale.
For decades, Feintool and SITEC have been valued suppliers of precision parts and assemblies worldwide, as well as manufacturers of complex production systems for the automotive industry and alternative energy technology, among others.
In the production of bipolar plates, the forming and joining process must meet the highest requirements in terms of tightness, precision and repeatability. With the FEINforming forming process developed by Feintool and SITEC's efficient FLEX Welding laser welding process, the companies also want to take off in Europe. The integrated processes of FEINforming, FLEX Welding and FLEX Inspection are used to join high-precision individual sheets into bipolar plates on corresponding production lines.
Thanks to the partnership, both companies are able to supply bipolar plates according to customer-specific designs, ready for installation, in the highest quality and in large series worldwide.
The cooperation ranges from engineering and supply chain management to prototyping and quality management. In the course of the cooperation, the manufacturing processes are constantly being further developed and additional complementary processes, such as coating, are added.
We are looking forward to your visit in hall 13, booth D47.
FEINforming: Advantage through precision
F EINforming technology enables the precise processing of the thinnest material thicknesses with the highest accuracy. This results in a reduction in weight and volume, allowing a more compact arrangement of cells in the stack. The optimization of material usage, design implementation and production opens up high potentials for cost reduction and efficiency increase in fuel cell and electrolyzer technology.
Flex Welding: Advantage through efficiency
The use of efficient laser technology is an extremely economical process. Highest welding speeds, maximum contour accuracy and almost distortion-free components are the features of FLEX Welding. In addition, the intelligent fixtures specially developed by SITEC form the basis for excellent welds. Integrated, intelligent monitoring systems ensure 100% quality control and traceability in automated production lines.
