New Manufacturing Technologies for Metallic Bipolar Plates

Conventionally, bipolar plates are manufactured by deep drawing. This process enables medium sized production quantities at relatively high costs. Our researchers therefore examined and compared different production processes for bipolar plates in a research project. The result shows that not every method is suitable for every type of bipolar plate. Decisive for the effectiveness of the production process is, among other things, the field of application. In addition to the... read more
