Fabrication of Flexible Materials for Battery Applications
New technologies and materials in batteries lead to exciting new applications in everything from tiny batteries in mobile phones, cameras, and micro-medical devices to larger batteries in hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and electric vehicles (EVs).
The complexity and power of these batteries require that an OEM or contract manufacturer work with a knowledgeable materials expert, like EIS, for electrical insulation, electrical conductivity, thermal management, EMC/EMI shielding, and packaging and protection.
As manufacturers work with lithium-ion, nickel-cadmium, and other advanced battery technologies, EIS can deliver the capabilities necessary to allow those batteries to perform at optimal levels. EIS can select and convert materials that handle critical considerations, such as:
- Heat removal/dissipation
- Electrical insulation
- Electrical contact
- Protection from debris and environmental conditions
- Cushioning and vibration absorption
Selecting the suitable materials and applying advanced die-cutting, slitting, laminating and assembly capabilities, plus product design, engineering, and prototyping, allows EIS to meet battery application requirements with innovative solutions.
