Title: Laser line scanning processing system for wrinkling in nation during coating
Author: Doblar, Peter Anthony
Abstract: One of the major limiting factors in fuel cell production is the time and effort that are required in the ink coating process of the Nafion film that is at the heart of what makes a fuel cell work. The principle reason that this issued has not been tackled by the industry at large is the inherent difficulties that arise. First and foremost is the rapid and extensive expansion of the material upon contact with the liquid ink causing the Nafion film to wrinkle while being processed. In the drive to help mitigate this issue it must be understood by what conditions and severity that wrinkling occurs. The method chosen to detect this was to develop a laser profile scanner to record and output the severity of any wrinkles present in the film. This thesis showcases and explains the laser scanning system designed specifically for this problem and material.Mechanical Engineering
