Compact & Precision Pneumatic Die Cutter with A Pair Die for Pouch Battery Research - MSK-180SP

In stock
Item Number: MSK180SP
Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)
MSK-180SP is a gas-driven die cutter for producing pouch battery cathode/anode electrodes ( no electricity required ) Its compact design enables the operation inside a glove box with Ar atmosphere where moisture/oxygen-sensitive electrodes will be cut (such as lithium metal electrode for Lithium-SulfurLithium Air, and Lithium Solid-State batteries).

MTI has granted the patent 201220308662.1 for the Pouch Cell Die Cutting Machine MSK-180SP since January 2013.

Die Set Dimensions

  • Two standard electrodes (Cathode & Anode) cutting dies are included for immediate use. 
    • Cathode Die: 56mm (L) x 43mm (W). With 10mm (L) x 10mm (W) protrude current collector.
    • Anode Die: 58mm (L) x 45mm (W). With 10mm (L) x 10mm (W) protrude current collector
  • Customized dies with Max. dimension 120mm L x 80mm W, including current collector, available at extra cost.

Plate Pad

  • Use the plate pad to hold the electrode and minimize permanent markings on the base.
  •   Warning: please don't use other material to replace the pad
Cutting Depth     Max. 0.5mm (tested with aluminum laminated film)
Cutting Accuracy ±0.1mm
Cutting Pressure Force Max. 1T (recommended pressure force for cutting battery electrodes is 0.5T)
Glove Box Compatibility
  • KF40 Feedthrough with all necessary wire and tube are included to allow operating inside the Glovebox, which has a KF40 port (Click on the picture for details)
  • Please use Inert gas when operating in the glove box.
  • One KF-40 clamp with rubber O-ring is included
Gas Pressure

  • 0.5~1.0Mpa (0.7Mpa is recommended)
    • To use inside the glove box, please use compressed inert gas such as Ar
    • To use outside the glove box, you may use the air compressor, 60 psi recommended
  • Compressor is not included, please click the image below to order
  • Attention: If a gas cylinder is used instead of an air compressor(pic2), a two-stage pressure regulator(pic1) must be installed on the gas cylinder to limit the pressure within the required working range for safe operation. Click here to learn the installation of a gas regulator

  • You might order a round cutting die kit to cut coin cell electrodes and separator by click the picture below
  • Please consider a 3 in1 sealing machine to make pouch cells
Application Notes

  • A perfect fit for the cases formed by the standard size MSK-120, with no rough edge, clippings, or creasings
  • The shape of the electrodes it produces is also handy for the later processing steps such as tab welding by MSK-800 and electrode stacking by MSK-111A
  • Compact design enables the operation inside the glove box with Ar atmosphere where Lithium SulfurLithium AirLithium Solid State or Li-ion half cell will be assembled. Please click the images in below to understand these technologies and how it fits in a glove box
