About the Battery Prototyping Seminar
The 2-day seminar will be held in Rochester, NY USA, and includes scientific lectures on lithium ion battery materials, technology, and hands-on training on the best cell fabrication practices from both academic and industry experts.
The seminar includes both theoretical (in-class) and practical (hands-on) training in Li-ion manufacturing technology. During the laboratory training, attendees will receive hands-on experience using the RIT Battery Prototyping Center’s semi-automated pouch cell production equipment. Laboratory training will be provided on mixing techniques, blade coating, electrode drying and calendaring, electrode punching, cell stacking, tab welding, electrolyte filling.
The corresponding lecture program gives insights into the latest battery materials, electrode processing, and pouch cell technology trends which includes the newest manufacturing equipment. Methods for formation cycles and cell aging will be discussed. Attendees will receive training on charge/discharge schedule design and battery data analysis and interpretation.
