Afternoon Session: PEC Cell Manufacturing Solutions
(13:30 pm – 16:30 pm)

 

  • Cell Finishing – The underestimated cost and performance factor
    Mr. Raf Goossens, CEO PEC
    The cell finishing process is the most costly and critical process during cell manufacturing. The forming of a homogeneous Solid Electrolyte Interface (SEI) is key for the future cell performance and cycle life but often underestimated. The upcoming new silicone based electrodes make the process even more challenging and critical. In this presentation we will discuss how to optimize cell performance with maximum safety, against a reduced manufacturing cost.
  • Automating your Cell Finishing Operations
    Mr. Peter Ulrix, VP Sales and Marketing PEC
    This presentation elaborates further on the specific automated cell finishing solutions for different cell types, including large format pouch type cells, prismatic hard case cells, cylindrical cells and batteries for medical and wearable devices.
  • Validation of new cells on the Formation Station
    Mr. Stef Leemans, Sr. Product Manager PEC
    During this presentation Stef Leemans will show you how PEC validates new cell types on our formation stations. He will explain how we test and validate contact resistance,
    homogeneity of the pressure distribution between the cells and temperature consistency of the cells during the formation cycles.
  • Manufacturing Safety
    Mr. Birger Rochtus, Sr. Contract Manager PEC
    Safety is the key word in PEC’s automated cell finishing lines. The whole system has been designed to prevent and mitigate risks related to cell malfunctions, thermal runaways, cell leakages, network failures, PC crashes and even the formation equipment itself.
