Our proprietary high-velocity forming and manufacturing technology is ideally suited for shaping thin metal with high precision. Since pattern design and quality is directly related to a bipolar plate’s energy efficiency, this type of forming technology pushes the boundaries for what’s currently possible in terms of hydrogen fuel stack efficiency.
By working with higher precision in thinner materials, fuel cell stacks can typically increase both their power out and their footprint. With 500-800 bipolar plates per stack, this is a very important consideration. Since tooling costs are lower for high-velocity forming, compared to conventional methods, we are able to produce large volumes at very competitive prices.
