Aim: Significant increase of process speed and improvement of quality as well as stability of the welding process of hydrogen fuel cells.
Brief description: The laser welding process we are looking into is highly interesting in the field of fuel cell manufacturing. All most every research institution, every machine builder as well as end user is challenged by the economical requirements of this new and complex process. As we see the needs of the application from different perspectives, we want to combine best available laser equipment to demonstrate a high speed & quality production process for hydrogen fuel cells.
Benefits: As the production capacities are low, the production costs are still very high and available manufacturing equipment as well as machine technology is not fulfilling the upcoming demands of the future production, it is important to improve and scale the production process of hydrogen fuel cells.
