Customized “hands-on” cell-assembly courses
A 2-day ”hands-on” Li-ion battery cell-assembly course
. . . just do it!
• next date to be announced
A unique Li-ion battery cell-assembly course in Uppsala – exploiting LiFeSiZE´s prototype pilot-line!
The course has a strong “hands-on” focus in which you will make your own cells, to 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 design and construction of a Li-ion battery
- Electrode slurry preparation, incl. rheometric optimization
- Electrode coating/drying in a 6m pilot-line
- Electrode cutting, calendering, punching and stacking
- Cell packaging, electrolyte injection and sealing
- Cell formation and testing.
The fee for the course is 27 800 SEK + VAT/participant. Lunches and “coffees” are included.
NOTE: travel and accommodation costs are not included in the course fee.
The course places 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 provide a deeper understanding of cell- and supplier-selection for portable, vehicle and stationary applications. The language of the course is 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 was earlier chief battery technician at the Ångström Advanced Battery Centre of Uppsala University, where he accumulated a wealth of experience of Li-ion battery fabrication at the basic research level. He is now applying his “hands-on” know-how to the extra challenges of lithium- and sodium-battery cell scale-up.
