Proton Motor Fuel Cell is increasing its hydrogen fuel cell production with automated production lines.
The company on Monday (August 23) inked a new agreement with special machines company Aumann for the effort that will see a “stack robot” expand Proton Motor’s production capacity to 2,500 fuel cell units per year.
In order to achieve this, Aumann will convert a t-4-AMandA machine prototype into an automatic fuel cell stack production plant for series production at the Proton Motor facility.
Aumann has already worked with Proton Motor, and its worked proved a success.
On the new task, Sebastian Roll, CEO of Aumann, said, “After the successful use of our first plant for Proton Motor, we are very pleased to continue our cooperation with Proton Motor and thus continue to advance the hydrogen fuel cell as a forward-looking technology for the mobility of the future.”
Sebastian Goldner, Chief Technology Officer and Chief Operating Officer at Proton Motor, added, “Through the Fit-4-AMandA funding project, Proton Motor was able to reach a milestone in its industrialisation history.
“With Aumann, we have a strong partner at our side to realise the series production of our fuel cell stacks as a key technology with their know-how for special machines.”
