Keysight Technologies announced that CUSTOMCELLS®, a leading provider of special lithium-ion battery cells, will install Keysight's battery cell formation line in its manufacturing facility in Tübingen, Germany.
Keysight's cell formation line provides CUSTOMCELLS® with state-of-the-art industrial cell formation, including quality measurements, such as direct measurement of cell self-discharge and cell impedance spectroscopy. Keysight also provided CUSTOMCELLS® a wide range of pouch cell form factors. Keysight's battery cell formation line is designed to form pouch cells of up to 200 millimeters (mm) x 200 mm in pressure trays undergoing various formation processes and cycles. Keysight's cell formation software will link together all formation and measurement stations to provide secure, web-based control and access to data collected during the formation process.
In addition, Keysight will provide CUSTOMCELLS® a platform for cooperative invention and deployment of next generation manufacturing solutions, including power electronics as well as fixturing and software components, enabling a state-of-the-art battery cell manufacturing process for pouch cells in a variety of sizes.
