The technology reserves under battery innovation -Lithium - Ion Battery Equipment

Technological innovation is the basic premise for the survival and development of a company. In the context of the rapid development of electronic technology applications, it is an inevitable choice for battery companies to strengthen their development capabilities and respond to market competition by increasing the strength of technological innovation in the battery field.

In fact, as the fuel of electronic products, since its birth, the technological innovation of batteries has never stopped. Lead acid, nickel metal hydride, lithium battery, solid state battery, air battery, fuel power lithium battery

Technology and business are the same, cold and cruel. One product revolutionizes another product, one company defeats another, and one era replaces another. Yesterday, Sony was left behind. Today may be Samsung, and tomorrow may be Panasonic.

The improvement of battery performance and technology depends on the catching up and competition among companies. If you can't make technical reserves in advance, you may be inadvertently overtaken by your competitors.

Gaogong Lithium Power Grid has found that since 2016, international companies including Honda, Panasonic, A123, NEC and others have announced the latest progress in their battery field. Some of them focus on improving the performance of existing lithium-ion batteries, some introduce new materials to upgrade existing batteries, and some focus on new battery fields

No matter what way it is, it is certain that giants often have the most sense of crisis, and their layout fields are most likely to become the future direction. Gaogong Lithium Power Grid has sorted out the latest R&D and industrialization progress of six international companies in battery and related fields, hoping to give readers some reference and help.(Lithium - Ion Battery Equipment)

Honda developed commercial magnesium battery

Japanese media reported that Honda Motor worked with a research and development team to develop the world's first practical magnesium rechargeable battery. After installing a new battery, smartphones and other devices can last longer after being charged once. For manufacturers, the cost of magnesium is 96% lower than that of lithium. The developers of Honda R&D team expect that magnesium batteries will be commercially available in smartphones and other portable devices at the beginning.

The difficulty of using magnesium in rechargeable batteries is that the charging performance of magnesium will degrade rapidly in the process of charging, discharging and charging. In order to solve this problem, researchers have developed a new material, vanadium oxide, and coated it on the positive electrode, so that ions can flow more easily between vanadium oxide and magnesium negative electrode. Vanadium oxide can increase the charging times of magnesium to prevent decay. To improve safety, the researchers added an organic substance, which can reduce the risk of magnesium battery fire. Magnesium itself is a flammable material.

If the heat resistance of magnesium battery can be further enhanced and the storage capacity can be further increased in the future, the company can install magnesium battery into plug-in hybrid vehicles and electric vehicles.

A123 and Argonne Laboratory developed high-energy lithium-ion battery

According to GlobeNewswire in the United States, A123 System recently announced that it has signed an agreement with Argonne National Laboratory to jointly develop high-energy lithium-ion batteries with long life and high safety.

A123 applied its high-tech and successful experience in battery material development to the commercial development of nickel manganese cobalt oxide (NMC) technology originally developed by Argonne Laboratory. After cooperating with Argonne and other independent R&D institutions, A123 expects its battery to increase energy density by 60% on the basis of existing products, and the driving range applied to electric vehicles will also be increased accordingly.

This project is based on the existing nickel manganese cobalt oxide (NMC) technology of A123, and the production of ternary batteries accounts for almost half of its production. A123 has become the world's leading manufacturer of low-voltage micro hybrid high-power batteries, and its development in the field of high-energy applications of ternary batteries has also made significant progress recently.

Today, in the field of plug-in electric vehicles, six models use the NMC ternary battery of A123, and the company has also won more than ten projects in the future market. Jason Fohill, CEO of A123, said, "We hope to meet the market's expectations for A123 and expand our customer base by supplying plug-in electric vehicle batteries with higher energy density, excellent service life and safety performance."
