X-Ray Inspection of Batteries for Optimized Internal Design
Why X-ray inspection is so important in Batteries manufacturing? Batteries are used and depended upon in thousands of different applications. From a firefighter’s flashlight, to a mobile device to a defibrillator, battery testing and failure analysis is important in helping to improve design and confirm the correct function of internal features.
Digital X-ray inspection examines the internal electrode arrangement after assembly and checks for any defects. X-ray inspection can help you understand the layout of the cathode and anode, accurately measure internal linear distances and alignments, quality of electrical contacts, short circuits and misaligned components and more.
Lithium batteries have high energy and can generate heat. Batteries are encased in stainless steel to make sure they don’t leak or cause any harm. With X-Ray inspection, you can look at the welding used to encase the battery, making sure the wall is the correct thickness and not too thin. If the wall is too thin, it could break and cause harm.
Accurately measure internal linear distances and alignments, quality of electrical contacts, short circuits and misaligned components.
With x-ray inspection, 100% battery inspection is achievable. Full inspection can be done in seconds per part with an automatic pass/fail signal output. For more in depth data, it is possible to link to factory QC, SPC or SCADA systems. Batch or laboratory R&D versions are available.
