A 2-day "hands-on" course in
Li-ion battery cell assembly

. . . just do it!

6th-7th November 2019

 


LiFeSiZE AB - Uppsala

Welcome to a unique Li-ion battery assembly course - exploiting LiFeSiZE´s new prototype pilot-line in Uppsala!
The course will comprise an interleaved series of lectures and practical exercises in which participants will get a first-hand (“hands-on”) feeling for the critical steps in Li-ion battery cell fabrication - from slurry preparation right through to cell formation and testing.

Some extracts from the course plan:
    • The general design and construction of a Li-ion battery.
    • Electrode slurry preparation, incl. rheometric analysis.
    • Electrode coating/drying on LiFeSiZE’s 6m pilot-line.
    • Electrode cutting, calendering, punching and stacking.
    • Cell packaging, electrolyte injection and sealing.
    • Cell formation and testing.

When and where:
The course will be given, 6th-7th November, at LiFeSiZE: Lefflersgatan 3A in Uppsala: www.LiFeSiZE.se

Course fee:

The fee for the course will be 27 800 SEK + VAT. Lunches and “coffees” are included.

NOTE: travel and accommodation costs are not included in the course fee.


Target group:
The course will place no strict preconditions on the background of its participants, but is intended especially for people with a general interest in the subject and especially for those involved in different aspects of industrial Li-ion battery R&D. The course will also provide a deeper understanding of cell- and supplier-selection for portable, vehicle and stationary applications. The language of the course will be English.

The course leaders

Josh Thomas, LiFeSiZE AB was Professor of Solid State Electrochemistry at Uppsala University until 2009; he founded the Ångström Advanced Battery Centre at Uppsala University in 2000 and LiFeSiZE AB in 2006.
Henrik Eriksson LiFeSiZE AB has been chief battery technician at the Ångström Advanced Battery Centre of Uppsala University since 2003, where he has accumulated a wealth of experience of Li-ion battery fabrication at the basic research level. He is now employed half-time at LiFeSiZE AB, where he is applying his “hands-on” know-how to the extra challenges of battery cell scale-up.
Helena Berg, AB Libergreen took her PhD in 1999 within the Materials Chemistry of Li-ion batteries. She has worked with Li-ion batteries as battery specialist for AB Volvo and has been an independent battery consultant since 2012 with her main focus on R&D strategies for advanced Li-ion batteries.
