American electronics manufacturer NATEL EMS is moving into the battery business after creating a new facility to handle lithium-ion module manufacturing in Chatsworth, California.
The Lithium-ion assembly facility allows the company to manufacture advanced technologies in space and automotive industries, including lithium-ion batteries for the manned space station.
The company redesigned of a segment of its Chatswort headquaters, to include a static dissipating flooring and an emergency lighting system.
The new facility also houses a walk-in cooler, a Tenney temperature chamber, an automated, double-sided MVP Supra E Automated Optical System with single or two-sided production modes and computer-controlled solder.
Jonathan D. Davis, Vice President of Corporate Development, said: “In order to make amazing things happen, you have to take risks. This is one of those instances where we made major internal investments to reintroduce ourselves into the manned space environment.”
