TUT9: Li-Ion Cell Design and Manufacturing: Processes, Equipment and Quality Control

TUESDAY, 14 JANUARY | 18:00 - 20:00 (DINNER PROVIDED)

ABOUT THIS TUTORIAL:

This tutorial will begin with an overview of Li-ion cell design for performance and manufacturability, including contrasting the performance and characteristics of commonly used materials. The tutorial will then lead into a detailed review of Li-ion cell manufacturing from incoming raw materials through final cell formation, aging and shipment. Manufacturing processes, equipment and production line costs will be contrasted for cylindrical, prismatic and pouch cells. Samples of commonly used cell components will be displayed. Quality control procedures will be described for each step of the cell manufacturing process, including a discussion on how to optimize cell performance, yields and safety. Attendees can expect to leave this tutorial with an understanding of how commercial Li-ion cells are designed and produced.
