Rotary Expander

The TBS Rotary Expander line is the market leading system for the continuous production of battery plate electrodes. Superior build quality, high production speed and significant lead alloy savings define the technology. Over 200 TBS Expander lines have been installed around the world over the past 20 years.
Typical production rates can deliver 160,000-200,000 plates per 8 hour shift, with a trim rate as low as 15% of the starting strip. Customer specific diamond patterns deliver light, high-quality grids providing superior performance and maximised paste retention.
