Setting a new standard for battery leak testing

Defective cells can shorten battery life, decrease range, and lead to safety issues. A leaky cell housing, one common failure mode for Li-ion batteries, can allow ambient humidity to come in contact with the electrolyte, triggering an exothermic (heat-releasing) chemical reaction.  Currently, the common practice in the battery manufacturing industry is to test cell packaging… Read more »

INFICON predicts huge growth in robotic leak testing at auto plants

INFICON, a supplier of leak-detection equipment, predicts that the percentage of global automotive plants with robotic leak-detection systems will jump from 5 percent today to 20 percent or more by 2024.
