  • Publication number: 20180241054
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for producing a membrane electrode assembly (12) for a fuel cell, wherein at least one first component (18) of the membrane electrode assembly (12) is provided as part of a continuous material web which passes through a plurality of processing stations. At least one second component (26) of the membrane electrode assembly is connected to the at least one first component. At least one adhesive is applied to at least one of the components (18, 26), said adhesive causing the connection of the at least one first component (18) to the at least one second component (26). Furthermore, the invention relates to a device (10) for producing a membrane electrode assembly (12).

  • Patent number: 5538610
    Abstract: A vacuum coating system has a processing station (2) designed as a sputter-etching station, in which a high-frequency input electrode (25) is mounted between two substrate holders (23, 24), which carry the substrates (5, 6). Between the substrate holders (23, 24) and the high-frequency input electrode (25), a distance (a) is provided, which is smaller than the dark space distance.

  • Patent number: 5292394
    Abstract: An evacuable tank having gas inlet and gas outlet openings, with at least one large-area anode at ground potential and a cathode provided as a substrate holder disposed substantially parallel thereto and connected to a high-frequency voltage source. The anode surface has step-shaped areas each being spaced at a different distance from the cathode in order to maintain a uniform ion concentration and therefore a uniform plasma.
