Schuler BPL Flex – Large series Production of Metallic Bipolar Plates for fuel cells
Schuler offers lines for the large-scale manufacturing of metallic bipolar plates for fuel cells as a manufacturer of cutting-edge technology in all areas of forming. The servo-driven
knuckle-joint press based on the MSP series has been specially adapted to the requirements for the forming of bipolar plates. A double-sided material feed allows the use of different materials for the two bipolar plate halves. Both halves are transported between the die stations by an innovative transfer system based on linear slides. Due to the highly precise positioning of the transfer, the bipolar plate halves can be placed on top of each other in the middle of the press and pre-joined by welding or forming processes. Subsequently the bipolar plates are welded gas-tight by a laser welding system from Andritz Soutec AG. For more than 180 years experience, Schuler is your perfect partner along the entire process chain.
