The test system and automation specialists NOFFZ Technologies GmbH and Albert & Hummel GmbH are entering into a cross-regional partnership. A milestone for both companies with a positive impact on our environment:
As strong industrialization partners, the technology companies jointly develop, manufacture and market automation and test solutions for the production of fuel cell systems.
Their range of products offers innovative solutions along the entire product development cycle from validation tests in preliminary and concept development to series production.
The automation experts Albert & Hummel, headquartered in Bamberg, Franconia, Germany, are well-known manufacturers in the field of special-purpose machinery for automation and robotics solutions. The technology company is particularly known for its advanced and modern plant concepts.
The North Rhine-Westphalian company NOFFZ Technologies is one of the well-known test and measurement system manufacturers in Germany and is constantly expanding into new locations internationally. Their customizable test solutions for validation, functional and EOL testing as well as their high-performance UTP software are successfully used in the automotive industry, among others.
NOFFZ and Albert & Hummel pursue a major common goal: not only to advance fuel cell technology, but above all to establish it on an industrial scale. With the provision of individual automation and test systems, the companies are making an important contribution to reducing CO² emissions and using hydrogen as the clean energy carrier of the future.
“We are very happy to have Albert & Hummel as an experienced partner and to bundle our each more than 30 years of expertise, our competencies and, of course, our capacities. We have a clear common vision for the future of optimizing the industrialization of fuel cells ecologically and economically and hope to expand our presence in the emerging markets of “Clean Mobility and Energy” with our state-of-the-art systems.”, enthuses Dipl.-Ing. Markus Solbach, Managing Partner at NOFFZ Technologies.
In order to mass-produce fuel cell systems in a functionally tested and quality-tracked manner, the partners have developed various solutions along the value chain. The new, ultra-modern plant concepts from Albert & Hummel and NOFFZ combine several production steps.
Efficiently coordinated with each other, both the automatic production and assembly as well as the functional test for a wide variety of components – from the individual cell, the stack and the FCCU to the finished fuel cell system – take place in various intelligent systems.
The production portfolio is applicable for validation testing in preliminary and concept development up to series production. It is Industry 4.0 compliant and therefore fully automated, product flexible, data-consistent, and of course scalable as required.
NOFFZ Technologies develops and produces industry-leading test systems and solutions for the entire product development process, from prototyping and validation to series production.
The company was founded in 1989 and currently employs more than 170 people at nine locations worldwide. From its headquarters in Toenisvorst, North Rhine-Westphalia, NOFFZ supplies manufacturers in the automotive, telecommunications, IoT, medical technology, consumer and semiconductor industries. NOFFZ Technologies was recently recognized by Frost & Sullivan as Company of the Year 2021 in the field of radar test systems for the European automotive market. In the 2018-2020 financial years, the company generated average net sales of around 30 million dollars and is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001.
