Fuel cells are the future power sources of automobiles and other electrical appliances. In manufacturing of fuel cell platinum coating is an important process to achieve high efficiency in performance of the fuel cell. This coating process is key in achieving efficient output from fuel cell.

We have designed a completely automatic coating applicator which will replace the existing coating method. The existing coating method is done manually in hand which causes uneven coating of platinum which leads to less efficiency of fuel cell output. The automatic applicator furnishes even coating with less time consumption and less human intervention leading to high efficiency output of coated fuel cell.
