For the coating of PEM fuel cell and electrolyzer bipolar plates, we can provide a wide range of PVD equipment - from standardized platforms to individual solutions that are tailored to your needs. This portfolio ranges from R&D over pilot to high-volume production equipment for the coating of strip material (roll-to-roll, R2R) and plates (sheet-to-sheet, S2S).
In addition, we offer to discuss your coating requirements with you and to adapt our coater concepts to perfectly match your plate designs and production volumes. Beyond that, we can calculate the total cost of ownership for you.
Metallic Bipolar Plates
Vacuum Coating Equipment & Technologies
As a manufacturer of bipolar plates for PEM fuel cell systems and electrolyzers, you are faced with the challenge of meeting the needs of a rapidly growing market. In addition, you have the task of raising the industrialization of your processes to a new level.
We offer you ideal solutions for cost-effective and highly productive manufacturing, tailored to your current and future requirements.
Our coating systems are based on platforms that allow you to scale from research and development to large-scale production.
Advantages of bipolar plate coating
Bipolar plates should be as durable, conductive and cost-effective as possible. To meet these requirements, metallic bipolar plates are coated with functional layers. PVD technologies are typically used for this purpose.
For the PEM fuel cell, we went one step further and developed and validated our own carbon-based layer stacks. The aim was to meet the demanding range of requirements for bipolar plate coating in an optimal and scalable way.
We will support you from the research and development phase to the establishment of an industrial coating solution for bipolar plates.
