Keysight Technologies and CUSTOMCELLS® Collaborate on Cell Formation Line and Related Technology Development

Creates a cell formation manufacturing solution for small series production of customized lithium-ion cells

Bangalore, December 4, 2019 – Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced that CUSTOMCELLS®, a leading provider of special lithium-ion battery cells, will install Keysight’s battery cell formation line in its manufacturing facility in Tübingen, Germany. The collaboration also includes the development and validation of new algorithms, software, instrumentation, and formation/measurement methods.

Keysight’s cell formation line provides CUSTOMCELLS® with state-of-the-art industrial cell formation, including quality measurements, such as direct measurement of cell self-discharge and cell impedance spectroscopy. Keysight also provided CUSTOMCELLS® a wide range of pouch cell form factors.  Keysight’s battery cell formation line is designed to form pouch cells of up to 200 millimeters (mm) x 200 mm in pressure trays undergoing various formation processes and cycles. Keysight’s cell formation software will link together all formation and measurement stations to provide secure, web-based control and access to data collected during the formation process.

“We are committed to supporting the electrification of vehicles by helping to develop and manufacture advanced battery cells,” said Thomas Goetzl, general manager of Keysight’s Automotive and Energy Solutions business unit. “Keysight’s state-of-the-art formation electronics, measurements, fixturing, and software will enable CUSTOMCELLS® to produce innovative cells using a process that addresses current and future customer needs.”

In addition, Keysight will provide CUSTOMCELLS® a platform for cooperative invention and deployment of next generation manufacturing solutions, including power electronics as well as fixturing and software components, enabling a state-of-the-art battery cell manufacturing process for pouch cells in a variety of sizes.

“Our mission is to produce special application, tailor-made cells that meet our customer’s unique requirements. The Keysight solution gives us the flexibility we need to support that mission and enable full traceability,” said Leopold König, CEO of CUSTOMCELLS®. “The close proximity of our locations in the German state of Baden-Württemberg, allows us to further develop our cooperative approach with Keysight, based on respective battery cell domain expertise and special know-how to address future customer requirements.”

TE Connectivity Announced Ultra Small Spring Fingers

TE Connectivity (TE)’snew ultra small spring fingers have one of the smallest footprints in the market to save valuable PCB space, allowing for use in a broad range of applications with space constraints across various industries.TE’s ultra small spring fingerscan save valuable PCB space with one of the smallest footprints in the market. Closed-loop contact design ensures reliable connection to the PCB, better normal force and higher current capacity (1.5A). Robust side wall minimizes over- compression. Special anti-lifting design can improve assembly e ciency by locking the tip of the contact within the sidewall of the spring  nger, which helps prevent the contact from getting caught on an operator’s glove during assembly. Pick-and-place area supports auto-assembly processes. It also offered in different heights and styles.As an authorized distributor for TE Connectivity, Heilind Asia provides TE’s products and also value added services. Heilind Asia supports both original equipment …
