Battery Inspection and Development
Inside Quality Assurance
Rechargeable batteries enable our digitized lives in the 21st century. Discover the advantages of computed tomography in the development and quality assurance of batteries.
High resolution and richness of details of non-destructive computed tomography allow a comprehensive inspection of the assembly. Destructive analysis methods can lead to a loss of information about the structure. Compared to such destructive methods, the CT scan allows direct observation of the internal structure of a battery without having to disassemble it.
The performance of batteries depends strongly on the microstructure of the materials and their processing. CT enables fast and contact-free digitisation of the internal material structures. Based on the data, a quantitative analysis of the porisity of the anode and cathode material can be performed. This allows the power density to be optimized and comprehensive quality assurance to be achieved.
A battery failure analysis by means of computed tomography provides you with insights and recommendations for avoiding future incidents. The non-destructive digitization of the component and the battery enables the derivation of the failure mechanism and the specific planning of further investigations.
Fly Through the CT Scan of a Battery
Industrial computed tomography is a powerful and versatile tool for the inspection of batteries. CT scanning provides a non-destructive way to fully inspect the internal structure and components of a battery, giving manufacturers and engineers detailed information about the battery's condition.
