Welding Applications

 

Rechargeable Battery Welding

 
NiMH Battery

 

There are four steps for manufacturing the Nickel-Metal-Hydride (NiMH) battery:

  1. Removal of active material
    The objective of this step is to remove the active material on the surface of the bubble nickel which can be achieved using an ultrasonic welder. For ultrasonic cleaning, ultrasonic output with high frequency and low amplitude of vibration should be used, in order to avoid any risk of damaging the property and tensile strength of the material itself. Furthermore, since in the welding process, the metal nickel plate welded to be rolled up, therefore, its strength should be robust enough, in order to avoid any affect of the battery quality due to the internal swelling and shrinkage during the battery charge and discharge.

    A vacuum suction cleaner should be equipped to suck out the dusts during the ultrasonic cleaning process.

  2. Tab welding
    The objective of this step is to weld the nickel plate with the dust-free bubble nickel. A good welding effect and welding strength is required and the material may not be damaged, to avoid any damage of the bubble nickel during roll-up.

    The welding horn for welding the nickel plate is made of special steel which is easy to warm-up during continuous welding process. Therefore, a cooling system is required.

  3. Separator welding
    To use an ultrasonic welder for cutting the PP or non-woven of the already packed and rolled-up bubble nickel.
  4. Pack welding
    To use an plastic ultrasonic welder to pack welding the battery.
 

Li-ion Battery
 

There are four steps for manufacturing the Lithium-Ion battery:

  1. Tab (+)positive welding
    To weld the positive electrode of the lithium-ion battery and weld two aluminum parts together
  2. Tab (-)negative welding
    To weld the negative electrode of the lithium-ion battery and weld copper and nickel parts together
  3. Safety valve welding
    To weld the aluminum and aluminum parts together
  4. Pack welding
    To use an plastic ultrasonic welder to pack welding the battery.
