AMETEK SMP Wallingford to present High Purity Nickel Strip
at 2019 International Battery Seminar

AMETEK SMP Wallingford will attend the 2019 International Battery Seminar and Exhibit, from 26 - 28 March at Fort Lauderdale Convention Center in Florida. The global leader in precision metal strip  will showcase its portfolio of high pure nickel strip products for critical battery applications at Booth 314.

AMETEK SMP Wallingford uses wrought Powder Metallurgy technology to manufacture the highest commercially available purity in nickel strip – to a minimum of 99.98%. The process produces high conductivity materials used in collectors and connector tabs for many battery chemistries. Mission critical applications include cardiac pacemaker cells, aerospace batteries and in the defense sector.

“Our superior powder technology ensures the highest purity finished strip products which offer major advantages to rechargeable battery production. Specifically, our pure nickel strip delivers greater power transmission compared with traditional cast nickel by improving the electrical conductivity by more than 15%. We’re looking forward to showcasing these advanced materials at the International Battery Seminar and Exhibit,” commented Matt Lappen, Product Manager: Precision Strip at AMETEK SMP Wallingford.

Additional product offerings include Titanium and Stainless-Steel Strip, Specialty Shaped Wire, Metal foils, and Composite Thermal Management Products for high powered GaAs and GaN applications.

The 36th annual International Battery Seminar and Exhibit showcases state-of-the-art energy storage products aimed at military, automotive and industrial applications. Delegates will benefit from a comprehensive four-day program of seminars, interactive presentations and an exhibition space to discover the latest innovations in battery technology. The annual event launched in 1983 and is now the longest-running exhibition of its kind anywhere in the world.
