How Can GC-MS Provide the Data Needed to Improve Lithium-ion Battery Performance?

Maintaining battery production quality and improving performance, lifetime, and safety requires application of a variety of analytical techniques. Confirming material composition and purity, ensuring the homogeneity of electrode slurries, detecting defects that can cause short circuits and certifying feedstock materials extracted from recycled batteries are all processes that depend on analytical testing. Investigating the mechanisms … Read more

Lithium Battery Manufacturing Equipment CAPEX

pie chart showing breakdown in cell manufacturing capex costs

If you are entering into manufacturing cells then you will want to understand Lithium Battery Manufacturing Equipment CAPEX. The detailed report is available from Bonsai Technology. This analysis is for a prismatic cell case and is an average. Note that this depends on: Therefore, it is a first indicator in the breakdown of a total … Read more

Using an ECM to Model HiPot Tests

circuit schematic for HiPot test modelling

Author: Siddharth Kurwa A DC high-potential test (HiPot) is used to detect manufacturing defects in the electrode stack/jelly roll. During the test, a high voltage (orders of magnitude higher than the cell operating voltage) is applied to the cell to screen out early-in-life and latent risks from the production cell population. It is preferred to … Read more
