Maintenance Notes

& Warnings
  • Electrolytes are highly corrosive materials.The die set must be cleaned with alcohol after each use to avoid corrosion 
  • In the case a replacement die is needed, please click pic.1 in below to order.
  • The PTFE die (found at the top die) ejects the cell casing after crimping via spring loaded pressure. Do NOT over tighten the pressure adjustment knob to avoid damaging this PTFE die.
  • To set the proper pressure on the die, loosen the knob all the way until the spring compression is no longer stressed. Then start tightening the knob and stop turning it once the spring compression is felt. This will prevent the PTFE die from deformed byovee- pressure. (Please refer to Pic.2 for details. )
  • Please use MTI Brand Coin Cell Cases only with crimper. We don't guarantee the crimping quality if other brand cells are used.

Application Notes  ----

How to choosea  MTI Crimper
  • MSK-110 is hydraulic manual  crimper. It is suitable use oteside glovebox at lower cost.   It is a little difficult to operate inside glovebox , and also may be risky on oil leaking for long time use
  • MSK-110-S  is driven by  inert gases, which is suitable for using inside glovebox with N2/Ar and with faster operation.
  • MSK-160E is driven by electric and  good for using in glovebox with N2/Ar.   but speed is a a little slow than MSK-110-S. It has compact size and can be transfered via air-lock chamber of glovebox.
