Ametek Specialty Metal Products (SMP) will feature alongside over 800 global battery technologists at the 2021 International Battery Seminar, now in its 38th year, as it showcases its range of high-purity nickel strip products, custom engineered through an advanced wrought Powder Metallurgy process.

Ametek SMP’s nickel strip is said to deliver 15–20% higher conductivity than traditionally-cast nickel strip connectors. This improvement means a higher transmission of power via a smaller, thinner strip, reducing the battery tab connector’s footprint, material weight and cost.

Critical battery connector uses include implantable medical devices and specialist batteries for aviation & defence equipment, as well as in the electronics, electric vehicles and oil & gas sectors.

Romeu Rei, Regional Sales Manager at Ametek SMP, commented, “The International Battery Seminar is a regular fixture in our exhibition calendar, and we are delighted to be taking part virtually this year, along with other battery experts and key players. We look forward to engaging with delegates to build relationships online and demonstrating our range of precision engineered, high purity nickel strip products.”

The 2021 International Battery Seminar will take place entirely online, from March 9–11, with users able to virtually visit exhibitor booths, watch product demonstrations, attend tutorials and live speaker sessions and network with colleagues via direct message and private video conferencing rooms.

Ametek SMP representatives will be on hand throughout the event to discuss its technology.

Powder Metallurgy: The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.
