Lithium Ion battery inspection in R&D and Production via
X-ray and CT

Battery demand is rapidly growing worldwide, mainly driven by consumer electronics, electronic transportation, and electricity grids. As the market expands, so does the expectation on battery performance. In today’s highly competitive environment, getting to market quickly and cost-effectively with a quality product is critical.

With CT inspection, battery manufacturers now have powerful tools for advanced testing and to reduce costly failures. CT inspection goes beyond traditional methods of testing and offers a better, more comprehensive, and more reliable approach. All of this means failures can be detected much earlier in development cycles, reducing downstream cost implications. CT testing provides additional insights into the manufacturing process and opens the chance for batch testing while decreasing scan time and increasing throughput.
