CThru Metals, an affiliate company of ESI, is happy to announce that we will appear at The Battery & Electric Vehicle Show from September 14th through the 16th. 

The Battery & Electric Vehicle Show is North America’s top advanced battery and electric vehicle event centered around the latest battery technology, materials, and applications. Every year at this event, industry thought leaders, innovators, and engineers gather in Novi, Michigan for an expo and conference focused on staying up-to-date with the ever-changing landscape of the advanced battery and automotive industries.

As one of these innovators, CThru Metals will be appearing at Booth #2629. 

Where does CThru fit in with your next battery or electric vehicle project?

CThru Metals offers advanced technology in expanded metal for wider coils, precision-grade expanded metal mesh, and thinner gauges. Many battery and fuel cell applications use expanded metals, and we can work with you to determine the right material, size, and configuration for your battery project.

Why should I use expanded metal foil for battery components or electric vehicle applications?

Perforated metal and woven wire account for the two most common alternatives to expanded metal foil. However, expanded metal foil comes with a few key benefits that applications won’t see using either woven wire or perforated metals.

Woven wire comprises several strands of material, while expanded metal foil consists of a single roll of material with precise, regular openings. The homogenous design of expanded metal foil allows for more consistent resistivity and conductivity. It also makes the material more suitable for applications that require accurately sized openings for optimal system or product performance.

Expanded metals can also eliminate the yield limitations of perforated metals due to the lack of scrap produced throughout the manufacturing process. The elimination of waste is particularly crucial when working with high-value specialty or exotic metals. 

Each of these advantages makes expanded metal foil ideal for a wide range of battery applications.
