Visitors to the FC Expo Japan will learn how DEK�s complete fuel cell line leverages proven precision mass imaging techniques to deliver significant cost-per-kilowatt savings for PEM, Solid Oxide, Alkaline, and Direct Methanol fuel cell technologies.
DEK�s fuel cell expertise has recently been enhanced by the introduction of a state-of-the-art ISO Class 7 (10,000) clean room facility at its UK site in Weymouth. Eliminating the risk of contamination during precision screen design and manufacture, the new facility maximizes productivity for commercial fuel-cell applications. With this in place, DEK�s proven high-speed, high-volume, low wastage screen printing process is an ideal solution to meet the fine print resolutions required for producing fuel cell elements such as ionomeric membranes, catalyst layers and backing layers.
�Our screen printing equipment and processes are the ideal solution for depositing polymer materials, dielectrics and metallization layers with thickness control to within just a few micron,� explains Kuniharu Numazaki, DEK Japans� Country & Regional Sales Manager . �This capability delivers clear cost-per-unit, quality, repeatability and scalability advantages for the commercial manufacture of fuel cell and solar cell components. FC Expo Japan will be an ideal showcase for our expertise in this field and I am looking forward to showing visitors from Japan why they can expect more from DEK in today�s fuel cell industry.�
DEK�s fuel cell expertise is reinforced by its years of experience using mass imaging to deliver high accuracy, high repeatability and high yield at very fine resolutions for thick-film, surface mount and semiconductor assembly applications. Having pioneered advances in the field of screen printing since 1969, DEK�s comprehensive product portfolio delivers a high level of support for a range of deposition processes.
