Graebener® Bipolar Plate Technologies realizes customized production lines for the cost-effective production of metal bipolar plates. Based on our core competences forming, cutting and welding we are one of the first companies to have been involved in research and development of production processes for bipolar plates for almost 20 years. From engineering through application laboratory services up to customized production lines – we implement solutions tailored to individual market demands. The fuel cell is not only interesting for future mobility, logistics or the generation of electricity and heat for houses, but for all applications of energy generation where environmental aspects, energy efficiency and sustainability are relevant: We believe that the future belongs to hydrogen. At Graebener® Bipolar Plate Technologies we want to make our idea of the future tangible for the present. Not only do we want to create leading and lasting quality for our customers in the spirit of our company's history, we also strive to develop solutions that already provide today what the world needs tomorrow. We are committed to creating the quality standard for technologies for the production of bipolar plates and to developing future-oriented processes which help our customers to produce components for hydrogen-based energy generation, precisely tailored, integrable, scalable and thus economically efficient. The fact that we are good at this is not only proven by our renowned references, network and research partners, but also – quite pragmatically – by more than 80 bipolar plate designs implemented and over 100,000 plates manufactured on our systems. We develop customized systems that are scalable in the future and support our customers with holistic engineering from the very beginning.

Product Highlights:

THE GRAEBENER® ENGINEERING – ESSENTIAL FOR PLATE DESIGN AND LINE TECHNOLOGY: We analyze your design regarding manufacturability and work with you to develop modifications so that your plate can be successfully manufactured – also with regard to the necessary features for an economic series production. You do not have a design yet? We would be pleased to implement your idea as a CAD model for you. For your own production, we analyze all production steps – from the coil to the finished welded bipolar plate – and develop a scalable and future-proof line concept based on the analysis and in consideration of your infrastructure. THE GRAEBENER® APPLICATION LABORATORY – FROM PROTOTYPING TO PRE-BUY SERVICE: In our application laboratory, we are able to verify the manufacturability of your bipolar plate design using a selected area as test geometry – this way you obtain initial results quickly and cost-effectively. This also applies to the design optimizations we work out. With the continuously optimized and patented Graebener® technology used in the laboratory, we are able to produce smallest lot sizes and small series of your plate design – and later transfer the production parameters one-to-one to your own Graebener® production line. YOUR GRAEBENER® PRODUCTION LINES – FROM THE INDIVIDUAL SOLUTION TO THE LINE: We realize your individual single systems for hydroforming, cutting and welding including all tools. For larger and more complex projects we develop tailor-made and scalable lines for series production – from the coil to the welded bipolar plate.
