Precision Die Cutter for Pouch Cell electrode Sheet with Two Size Range Optional - MSK-180/MSK-180L

Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)

Product Options

MSK-180 is a CE Certified Precision electrode die cutter with an optional size range ( MSK-180 or MSK-180L). It is a necessary tool in the production line of pouch cells to produce specific shapes of cathodes and anodes with current collector tabs. The size of the electrodes it cuts perfectly matches the standard pouches made by the MSK-120 cups forming machine, and the shape of the electrodes it produces is also handy for the later processing steps of tab welding by MSK-800 and electrode stacking by MSK-111A. The IR sensor (Safety Curtain) built in the front of the machine ensures operation safety when electrode sheets are fed from the front.  New version MSK-180L with a large working area is available as optional!

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