Morning Session: PEC Testing Solutions
(
9:30 am – 12:30 pm)

 

Welcome
Raf Goossens, CEO PEC

The High Performance Cell Test Lab in an Industry 4.0 World
Mr. Peter Ulrix, VP Sales and Marketing PEC

The continuous race in Li-ION cell development and scale up from material research to large format cells requires battery test labs to be more efficient, automated and organized to manage and analyze Big Data. In this presentation we will focus to the key requirements for such labs in terms of system architecture, data management and analysis capabilities, safety requirements and the necessary accuracy and speed to achieve the newest trends in cell testing.

New Product Announcement: PEC 150V Module Tester
Mr. Stef Leemans, Sr. Product Manager PEC

PEC is announcing its next generation module tester. This machine will be the successor of the SBTXX50 range of machines offering an extended voltage and current capability.

Coffee Break

Large Format Cell Testing with PEC’s ACT0550 and CT0550
Mr. Peter Ulrix, VP Sales and Marketing PEC

Peter Ulrix will introduce PEC Cell Testing solutions and system architecture, including the latest
features and developments.

Demonstration of the ACT0550 Cell Tester and its Accuracy
Mr. Stef Leemans, Sr. Product Manager PEC

Stef Leemans will show the complete test cycle starting from test configuration to reporting including demonstration of accuracies, rise times and stability of the PEC test equipment. During the demonstration Stef Leemans will also show the latest new software features in the LifeTest software.

Demonstration of PEC’s LifeTest Test Management Software
Mr. Dieter D’Hoker, Sr. Project Manager PEC

Dieter D’Hoker will demonstrate how you can use LifeTest to plan and execute your test plans, analyze test data, integrate climate chambers, schedule aging events, communicate with BMS systems, automatically validate results and compare your results from different test bench suppliers.

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. Stef Leemans, Sr. Product 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.

Demonstration of PEC’s Manufacturing Software
Mr. Dieter D’Hoker, Sr. Project Manager PEC

Dieter D’Hoker will show the complete software cycle starting from process and routing configuration, over process control to reporting including demonstration of the PEC formation towers.
