Process Equipment for MEA, PEM, SOFC & MCFC
all4-GP offers key equipment used in the production of the membrane electrode assembly (MEA) and bipolar plates typically found in Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM or PEMFC), Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) and Molten-carbonate fuel cells (MCFC) technologies. This includes R&D scale as well as fully automated membrane lamination, spray coating, mutli-zone heating in conveyorized ovens, plate embossing, direct imaging, screen printing and wet process etching.
all4-GP provide industry leading re-usable lamination press pads (Yamauchi) and release paper (Ahlstrom) to support hot lamination press requirements. These products help our customers reduce cost, scrape rates and improve product quality. Metal clad organic foils (such as PI) are offered by Krempel.
all4-GP has partnered with a well-known European adhesive supplier (Polytec PT) to offer a diverse range of materials addressing electrical or thermal conductivity and encapsulation applications, as well as the possibility to develop customized formulations.
