20120088136NON-AQUEOUS ELECTROLYTE SECONDARY BATTERY - Disclosed is a non-aqueous electrolyte secondary battery including: a cylindrical wound electrode group including a belt-like negative electrode, a belt-like positive electrode, and a belt-like separator interposed therebetween, the electrodes and separator being laminated and wound together; and a non-aqueous electrolyte. The cross section perpendicular to the winding axis of the electrode group has a radius of 3 mm or more. The negative electrode includes a current collector, an active material layer including a silicon-based active material and adhering to the surface of the current collector, and a strip-like lead connected to the current collector via an alloy layer comprising a copper-silicon alloy. The lead is connected at the round of winding radially 3 mm or more away from the winding axis of the electrode group, and includes a copper foil or copper alloy foil having a tensile strength per unit length of the short side width thereof of 3 N/mm to 50 N/mm.04-12-2012
20120094160RECHARGEABLE BATTERY AND MANUFACTURING METHOD OF THE SAME - A rechargeable battery having an electrode assembly formed by depositing/spiral-winding an positive electrode and a negative electrode on respective surfaces of a separator; a can including a pipe having a side seam portion to enclose the electrode assembly and a bottom plate bonded to a first opening of the pipe by a bottom seam portion to close and seal the first opening and facing an end portion of the electrode assembly; and a cap assembly bonded to a second opening of the pipe formed at the other side of the bottom plate to close and seal the second opening.04-19-2012
20120094159CYLINDRICAL ALKALINE BATTERY - Provided is a cylindrical alkaline battery in which the packing density Dc of the manganese dioxide in the positive electrode is 2.8 to 3.0 g/cm04-19-2012
20130209848DEVICE FOR FOLDING ELECTRODE ASSEMBLY - Disclosed herein is a folding device to manufacture a stacked/folded type electrode assembly having unit cells sequentially stacked in a state in which a separation film is disposed between the respective unit cells, the folding device including a web supply unit to supply a web having plate-shaped unit cells arranged at a top of a separation film at predetermined intervals, a winding jig to rotate the unit cells while holding a first one of the unit cells of the web so that the unit cells are sequentially stacked in a state in which the separation film is disposed between the respective unit cells, and a rotary shaft compensation unit to compensate for the position of a rotary shaft of the winding jig in an advancing direction of the web (X-axis direction), wherein the rotary shaft compensation unit periodically changes the position of the rotary shaft to compensate for the change in X-axis velocity (Vx) of the web caused during winding of the plate-shaped unit cells, thereby uniformly maintaining tension of the web.08-15-2013
