Hydrogen has great potential for climate protection and the energy supply of tomorrow. To do this, you produce electrolyzer systems that convert green hydrogen from sustainably generated electricity. To automate production,  you need the best system technology. This is where we come into play – with our many years of experience in web material processing and the stacking of various products.

For your electrolyzer production, we combine sensitive membranes, fragile foil-based sealing frames, media plates, or expanded metals. From synchronized, piece-based solutions to fully automated lines, we build and support your production system. All with one goal – your modular, high-performance electrolyzer stack production.

When will you get off to a flying start with a production line from Optima?

From the roll to the stack Manufacture electrolyzer stacks successfully

The stack forms the core element in the electrolyzer (similar to the fuel cell). A stack is composed of many individual cells. These consist of a membrane as well as various seals, manifold plates, and many other components.

Process step

Cutting

Proven technologies from Optima ensure fast and reliable cutting.

When it comes to cutting the unrolled gas diffusion layers (GDLs), side reinforcements and membranes, we support you with established machine technologies for a fast, continuous process based on the roll-to-piece principle.

What this means in concrete terms is high cutting accuracy and performance as well as clinical cleanliness. Dust is kept at bay with an integrated air purification system. To cut new contours, simply change the cutting plate.

Process step

Combining

In this step, the system precisely assembles all MEA components in a way that is careful with the materials.

The catalyst coated membrane (CCM) is an important component of the MEA. It has a catalyst layer on both the anode and cathode sides. When joining a CCM with side reinforcements to a prepared MEA, Optima systems will handle your valuable materials with particular care.

Process step

Stacking

During stacking, Optima's stacker assembles materials with different physical properties and sizes in a final electrolyzer stack. The integrated inspection system ensures traceable product quality – including position monitoring, data acquisition, and functional testing. You will benefit from our collective experience during this complex automationstep. Another advantage is that the modular unit keeps pace with your success – it can be scaled up and expanded as required.

Process step

Compression

When the electolyzer is on its way to becoming ready for use, the stack is subsequently compressed. When compressing, the system checks force/displacement and impermeability. After that, the stack is secured.
