Etching

Renewables - The wind of change

ACE is fast becoming a critical supplier to the renewables sector, with our ability to produce specialist prototype and low volume components helping us secure work from both the UK and overseas.

The quality and technical skills gained from years of delivering precision etched parts to the automotive, aerospace and medical sectors are a natural fit to clients operating in this market.

We already have some major success stories and are heavily involved in the emerging fuel cell market, heat exchangers and have delivered mechanical components to wind turbines.

Continued investment in our expanding Telford plant will ensure we stay at the forefront of new developments in renewables.

We will work with the client at the earliest stage of design, looking to add value throughout and using our knowledge of chemical etching to offer solutions for high performance/lightweight parts.

Typical etched components we manufacture for the renewable energy sector include:

  • Fuel cell plates
  • Bipolar plates
  • Heat exchanger plates
  • Manifolds
  • Slip rings
  • PEM fuel cell stacks
  • Gaskets
