Today’s world demands that lithium-ion batteries constantly improve in performance as power sources for various devices such as smartphones, laptops, and electric and hybrid vehicles. Hitachi High-Tech is a unique state-of-the-art technology company with two functions as a manufacturer and a trading company. We can provide cutting-edge solutions for lithium-ion batteries from equipment to components in all aspects of the value chain from R&D to manufacturing and quality control. Hitachi High-Tech has also begun to actively develop and manufacture solutions for all-solid-state batteries, which shows promise as next-generation rechargeable batteries.Be a leader in the lithium-ion battery market with Hitachi High-Tech as your partner.
With technologies to “See," “Measure," and “Analyze,” we are realizing new innovations in various industrial fields. In the lithium-ion battery market, we provide ultra-high-performance electron microscopes and various analyzers for inspection and measurement equipment as a manufacturer.
The Hitachi High-Tech Group and its affiliated companies provide various devices for the manufacture of lithium-ion batteries. In addition, we provide raw materials, materials, and components necessary for manufacturing. We also provide one-stop services, such as evaluations and analysis at a global level.
As a manufacturer that supports cutting-edge fields, Hitachi High-Tech offers a lineup of electron microscopes and analyzers that meet all customer needs, from ultra-high performance models to models that do not require special skills to operate. As a trading company, we provide the materials necessary for lithium-ion batteries.
From desktop electron microscopes that can be easily and quickly used for quality control at manufacturing sites, to high-performance electron microscopes that meet the needs of R&D departments. Analyzers that enable analysis in all process while linking with observations. Hitachi High-Tech offers an end-to-end lineup of electron microscopes and analyzers that meet the needs of R&D, manufacturing, and quality control for lithium-ion batteries. We also meet a range of nano-order observation and analysis needs, including high-precision observations and failure analysis to realize high-capacity, high-output, and long-life lithium-ion batteries, as well as offering environmental surveys at manufacturing sites.
In cooperation with our group and affiliated companies, we offer total integrated solutions for lithium-ion battery manufacturing. We also provide quality control consultation in cooperation with our contracted inspection partners.
We offer a lineup of electron microscopes that are optimal for quality control, from scanning electron microscopes that support large samples to desktop electron microscopes. Our EA8000A X-ray particle contaminant analyzer has the world's highest level of foreign object detection capability for detecting and analyzing foreign object in lithium-ion batteries with high throughput. We also offer one-stop services for evaluation and analysis of lithium-ion batteries in cooperation with our contracted measurement service company Japan Testing Laboratories, Inc. (JTL).
Hitachi High-Tech Corporation has developed a method of Rapid Diagnostics of Battery Degradation that instantly evaluates the performance degradation and remaining life of lithium-ion batteries during or after use. Compared to the conventional method, which took 2 to 4 hours to evaluate, it takes from only a few seconds up to 2 minutes to evaluate the performance degradation and remaining life of battery using this method.
By introducing the evaluation method into each process of the production, use, and recycling of lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles, it can be used as a new data management platform for functions including the “monitoring of individual battery usage status,” the “clarification of remaining performance evaluation at the recycling/reuse phases,” and “visualization of supply-and-demand balance and market value forecasts for battery reuse/refurbish.”
