Aluminium 4680 Cell Can Structural Performance

aluminium 4680 cell case from Speira

Recent industrial and academic studies have shown that aluminium cell housings can provide several benefits in terms of thermal management and gravimetric energy density in particular1,2,3. However, as Cell-To-Pack and Cell-To-Chassis approaches arise the battery cell and therefore, the battery cell housing, become part of the structure of the battery electric vehicle contributing with their … Read more

Aluminium Busbar Products

aluminium busbars as used on a battery module

for Cell Contacting Systems and Busbars Aluminium busbar products are used in manifold applications in batteries and battery systems due to their favourable structural, physical, and chemical properties. When it comes to cell contacting systems and busbars, electrical (and thermal) conductivity are decisive for balancing component resistance and cross-section to meet the designed space. However, … Read more

Benefits of Aluminium Cell Housing for Cylindrical Li-ion Batteries

Benefits of Aluminium Cell Housing for Cylindrical Li-ion Batteries is based on a 4680 cell concept. The battery industry is targeting larger cell formats, which enable simplified module design and cell-to-pack or even cell-to-chassis solutions. In this regard, hard case battery cells and in particular cylindrical cells will play an important role in enabling the … Read more

Joining Techniques for Pack Enclosures

Author: David G. Kilburn & Nigel Taylor As I posted the other day, there are a lot of “boring” battery topics that often get overlooked and producing the battery housing (sometimes referred to as battery tray or box) is no exception! To house a battery you need a high quality, leak proof container that can … Read more
