Restriction of materials

To ensure the quality and safety of the batteries, it is necessary to restrict the use of some unnecessary materials such as copper, zinc, nickel, electrolytic nickel plating with a copper layer or zinc plating during the electrode and assembly production process, before the battery cell is sealed.

Dry room - low dew point

Battery production is carried out in a dry-room environment with a pressure dew point of -50 °C or even lower, as humidity is one of the main threats to the battery production process. Discover our wide range of compatible products for battery manufacturing – 25A Series.

Explosion proof

The process of filling a battery cell with a highly corrosive electrolyte has a high risk of fire/explosion due to the characteristics of the electrolyte, which has a very low ignition point. As battery manufacturing processes will be held in a potentially explosive atmosphere, according to the ATEX Directive, it is necessary to use certified explosion-proof equipment to prevent the generation of ignition sources.

Corrosion resistance

During the electrolyte filling in the cell assembly process, corrosion of the pneumatic products may occur due to the nature of the electrolyte. SMC supplies products with excellent resistance to corrosion and chemicals as required by the battery manufacturing environment.

Reduced static discharge

Static electricity is an invisible enemy that can create serious problems in the battery manufacturing process. In an environment with a high static charge, the chances of explosions and fires increase significantly due to this unseen phenomenon. Therefore, use SMC’s wide range of ionizers for measuring, removing and controlling static electricity and guarantee final product quality.

Temperature control in laser applications

The use of thermo-chillers makes it possible to maintain the temperature of the heat generating devices, lasers in this case, within strict limits. This proper temperature control increases the productivity, maximises the machine performance, and improves the quality, reliability and service life of the equipment.
