Continuus Properzi has introduced a wide lead strip (360mm) casting and rolling system designed for battery manufacturers gearing up on their punched grid production.
The new line can be specified with production throughputs of between five and 30 tons per hour. Properzi pioneered expanded strip production with Magneti Marelli back in the early 1990s and the technology grew to dominate SLI battery making.
With punched grid production becoming the norm for advanced lead battery production, might we be seeing another revolution in the making? There will be a full report in the Winter issue of BEST magazine— out soon online and in print. Make sure you’re subscribed!
