How it all works
The heart of any factory is the equipment that produces its core product, and for Acuform this is
the battery casting moulds. The battery casting moulds comprise a number of pairs of patented
specialised vertical steel ‘L’ shaped moulds.
Conventional flat panel production is normally performed using horizontal trays or beds that
take up considerable space and need to be weather protected in a permanently enclosed factory
structure. As Acuform panels are cast vertically, a fraction of the space is required for production
and an enclosed structure is only required in countries that have a predominately cold, freezing
climate, which means that production equipment is ‘semi–mobile’ and can even be set up on
the project site.
