Cell Impact AB (publ) has received a 3.4 MSEK development and technology validation order from Nakanishi Metal Works Co. Ltd (NKC) in Osaka, Japan.
The order encompasses both a technical enhancement to our forming technology and a limited flow plate validation production run for a global leading automotive manufacturer.
The order involves design of a prototype flow plate and a limited production run to test Cell Impact’s tooling concept for large volumes. If the target of the development activity is reached it will result in a new level of productivity which will strengthen an already competitive production technology.
“This is a very significant order since it comes from a global leader in the automotive industry through NKC after a rigorous evaluation of the potential in our production technology. It confirms that Cell Impact’s technology is a candidate for flow plate production at large scale. If our technology is qualified it opens for a considerable business potential a few years down the road. We appreciate the excellent partnership and cooperation we have established with NKC and the possibility carry out this project together with them”, says Pär Teike, CEO, Cell Impact.
