Production Welding

Welding membrane electrode assemblies (MEAs) between bipolar plates is a key step in fuel cell production. Because of the large number of MEAs used in each fuel, this welding must be performed at high speed to make the assembly process economically viable. But traditional fiber lasers haven't delivered the necessary weld quality, and tend to produce “humping” in the weld seams. Coherent HighLight FL-ARM lasers solve this problem and enable cost-effective bipolar plate welding.
