In conjunction with OXIS Energy, Ceetak Ltd is proud to be part of the Faraday Battery Challenge; a programme designed to ensure that battery cell research and innovation take centre stage in the Government’s Industrial Strategy.
Innovate UK has distributed funding for businesses for specific R&D projects within the programme, and UK based OXIS Energy is leading the Lithium Sulfur Future Automotive (LiSFAB) development project. Valued at approximately £7 million, the project has been awarded a grant to develop a next generation battery cell and module that will have the significantly improved power and cycle life required by larger automotive applications.
We are trialling our heat sealing technologies to develop the crucial pouch sealing process in order to ensure the future production of a robust battery cell.
Since the project’s inception in the second quarter of 2018, a team of Ceetak engineers have worked to provide crucial test result data on the performance of a selection of our heat sealing technologies, and the compatibility with the delicate materials involved in the production of the battery cell. This is being accomplished by developing a specific test station to evaluate the different technologies to achieve the most robust and suitable pouch sealing process.
Lamb Weston is a world leading brand in high quality potato products, and sold in over 100 countries around the world. They supply frozen potato products to customers in the Food Service, Quick Service, Industry and Retail market segments.
Due to great success with other frozen food manufacturers, we approached Lamb Weston with our Quick Pulse Heat (QPH) sealing technology; provided a free on site survey and installed a free trial of the QPH seal technology.
