MATERIALS: Tech Etch has designed and developed a robotic spray coating process used to apply conductive coatings to battery current collectors, fuel cells, and other energy storage devices that require low resistance coatings. Conductive coatings enhance battery performance with improved electrical contact between active materials and the current collector, resulting in longer battery life and reliable cycle life. They also provide oxidation and corrosion protection which enables aggressive electrolytes and provides extended shelf life by reducing leakage and self-discharge.
The robotic nature of the spray coating equipment, with an articulated spray head that delivers coatings from all angles, provides very uniform delivery of the conductive coatings. The system ensures even and complete coverage of components with very tight coating thickness tolerances. The equipment is designed to deliver both epoxy and water based coatings.
On Memorial Day, Americans remember the sacrifices the US armed forces have made, and continue to make, in service to the country. All of us should also consider the developments in technological capabilities and equipment over the years that contribute to the success of our military operations.
Advanced visualization can depict an entire plant in motion, while also detailing an individual workstation. Individual products can be rendered different for each discipline involved — marketing, engineering, or suppliers.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
