Stack up on expertise! Feintool and SITEC at the «Hydrogen + Fuel Cells EUROPE» in Hannover

We will showcase our expertise in the development and production of high-precision bipolar plates and interconnects at Messe Hannover. We will also launch the "Stack up on" campaign, which highlights the customer and market benefits of our key components for fuel cells and electrolysers.

Hydrogen is a central element of future sustainable energy systems, with metallic bipolar plates and interconnects forming the heart of fuel cells and electrolysers. These components demand the utmost precision and tightness standards. Feintool in collaboration with the laser welding expert SITEC, produces these high-precision parts for hydrogen applications on an industrial scale. For decades, both companies have earned global recognition as technology partners and suppliers.

Stack up on precision, speed, quality, and efficiency!

The "Stack up on" campaign emphasizes the customer and market benefits of precision, speed, quality, and efficiency inherent in our production. Thanks to our partnership, we deliver custom designed bipolar plates and interconnects of the highest quality, ready for installation, and in high-volume series worldwide.

  • Stack up on PRECISION: Ultra-precise metal forming process.
  • Stack up on SPEED: Laser welding at top speeds with excellent weld seams.
  • Stack up on QUALITY: Quality assurance integrated directly into production.
  • Stack up on EFFICIENCY: Scalable, efficient solutions - for prototypes, pre-, low- and high-volume series.

The successful collaboration between SITEC and Feintool is evident at our site in Taicang, China, where series production of precision metal components for the hydrogen economy will start in 2024. Additionally, we have also secured our first order for series production in Europe in spring 2024.

Visit us from April 22 to 26, 2024 at our stand E19/1 in hall 13 at the Hannover Messe.

FEINforming: Advantage through precision

Feintool's FEINforming technology enables the precise processing of ultra-thin material thicknesses with maximum accuracy. This results in weight and volume reduction, facilitating a more compact arrangement of the cells within the fuel cell stack and in electrolysers. Through the optimization of material use, design implementation, and production processes, we unlock significant potential for reducing costs and increasing the efficiency of fuel cell and electrolyser technology.

FLEXwelding: Advantage through efficiency

Employing efficient laser technology from SITEC, FLEXwelding stands out as an extremely economical process. Characterized by the highest welding speeds, maximum contour accuracy, and virtually distortion-free components, FLEXwelding ensures optimal results. In addition, the intelligent systems specially developed by SITEC form the basis for excellent weld seams. Integrated, intelligent monitoring processes ensure 100% quality control and traceability within automated production systems.
