World Storage Battery Market US$250 billion in 2020

Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry estimates that the market of storage batteries in the world will grow from US$64 billion in 2011 to US$250 billion in 2020.
The Japanese government aims for 50% share in this market.

Especially in Japan impact of 3.11 is still enormous.
Many people tend to prepare storage batteries in case of emergency.
Also nuclear power plants are getting closed and the industry faces possibility of electricity shortage.
More and more storage batteries are being introduced in factories, hospitals, public buildings and homes.

The Japanese government supports both development and purchase of storage batteries.

Below is one of tips to help production of battery materials and plastic films in roll to roll process.
This roll is made by a shaft and thin metal roll.  Air is between this shaft and metal roll. 
Inner air pressure can be controlled in the range of 0.3MPa.
Air roll diameter in this picture is 260mm.

EV, its sales is stagnant

It is reported that sales of EV, Electric Vehicles, is not going on well.
They point out 2 reasons.
Price is high and its cruising range is limited.
These reasons lie in batteries.
EV batteries are expensive and their capacity is not much.
There is need to be improved.

If you think of roll to roll process in production of batteries,
why not try steel belts to increase process speed?
Below is image of continuous process.
Battery materials are laminated between upper belt and lower belt on and on.

Cerium Recycling and Steel Belt

It is reported that DOWA HOLDINGS Co., Ltd. of Japan has reached to find a method to recycle cerium used for polishing optical lens and highly precise glasses. 

Steel belts are used to convey those powder substances and small parts taken out of process or used electric appliances.

Heat resistiveness and rigidity are evaluated in these applications.

Nipping and smooth metal surface for film production (2)

We need to talk about 'Air Roll.'
This is a metal roll for film forming and lamination.
It is made by outer surface of thin metal roll, roll shaft, and air between a shaft and a outer metal roll.
Thickness of this outer metal roll is around 0.2 to 0.4mm.
When you push its roll surface, you can feel that the pressed area sinks a little.
Pressure inside this roll is 0.3Mpa max and is adjustable.
So we can set different inner pressure exactly as we change and try several rubber rolls to get the best nipping.
Yet this outer metal roll is smooth and does not damage films.

Nipping and smooth metal surface for film production

It is reported that
ZEON CORPORATION, one of leading Japanese chemical companies,
increases production of LCD Antireflective Film by 230% and that
Nissha Printing Co., Ltd. , upholding Japanese printing technology,
also increases production of touch panels for tablet PCs by 30%.

When nipping and smooth metal surface are required for production of plastic films, why not try 'Air Roll.'

Printed electronic heaters

This is on blood bags you find in hospitals.  It is not cold, but gets warm by heaters printed in plastic blood bag.  So blood inside is warm. 
It is expected that warm blood mitigates side effects of new blood when it goes through a body.

When circuits are printed on plastic films, surface of these plastic films must be dead flat.  Stainless steel vacuum conveyor serves dead flat surface and continuous printing on roll-to-roll stream.
