Wirtz Continuous Grid Punching System For Positive Plates – Conpunch CP-13200

Wirtz Manufacturing has successfully installed Wirtz Conpunch system globally. Each system is fully assembled and tested at our facility prior to shipping. Using our extensive expertise and 80+ years of experience in lead acid battery equipment design and manufacturing, Wirtz can assist customers in designing an optimal grid. Wirtz offers a complete system, including installation assistance, technical support, and tooling design and manufacturing. Positive grids using Conpunch are held to precise thickness and weight tolerances, and offer advantages similar to those of a traditional Wirtz Gravity Cast Grid, including:

  • Side frames for strength, no punctured separators.
  • Designable grids: Variable sizes, tapered frames, radial corners
  • Wet or Dry charge grids
  • Grid designs for better paste retention *Wirtz Patented reforming and texturizing technology.
  • Single wide or double wide grid configurations

ConPunch grids are used in nearly every type of lead acid battery on the market today, including

  • Automotive
  • VRLA and Motorcycle
