FOR THE FIRST TIME, WALLNER EXPAC TO EXHIBIT AT THE BATTERY SHOW 2019

Wallner Expac introduces MicroForm®, offers discount for the conference

 

ONTARIO, Calif. – August 12, 2019 – Wallner Expac, the developer and manufacturer of MicroForm®– its line of precision engineered expanded metals for use in specialized applications is excited to announce its inaugural exhibition at The Battery Show 2019.

To take place September 10-12 at the at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Mich., The Battery Show is North America’s largest and most comprehensive advanced battery manufacturing trade show. Exhibiting in booth #2929, Wallner Expac will introduce and showcase its new precision engineered MicroForm® expanded metal specifically for use in advanced battery technologies as the support structure for the electrically active material. Additional uses for MicroForm® include EMI/RFI shielding, microfiltration, speaker grilles, window and door screens, and more.

Manufactured in Wallner Expac’s climate-controlled environment to control precision specifications, MicroForm® can be manufactured into light- and heavy-gauge variants using common and exotic metals. Tight tolerances allow production capabilities to expand the LWDs from 0.125” down to 0.050” using materials with a minimum thickness of 0.002”. Post-production services include flattening, slitting, cut-to-length, stamping and more.

To celebrate its inaugural exhibition at The Battery Show, Wallner Expac is offering a limited quantity of promo codes to save 20 percent on the cost of a conference pass. Wallner Expac representatives will be on site to share its industry products and knowledge with attendees and demonstrate how their organizations can benefit from its comprehensive products and services– design, engineering, and manufacturing. Furthermore, attendees can learn how expanded metal has many uses beyond battery technologies including automotive, construction, architecture, and more.

The Battery Show will provide expert-led educational sessions and product showcases representing the full supply chain — from raw materials to recycling. The conference offers eight tracks of education covering topics crucial to every stage of the advanced battery supply chain and the expo delivers the largest exhibition of industry suppliers in North America. Combined with the Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo, more than 650 suppliers come together to showcase their raw materials, components, cell makers, testing, and recycling products and services.

This is a must-attend event for engineers, innovators, and those looking to keep on pace with automotive, consumer, medical, and stationary application growth.

WALLNER EXPAC ANNOUNCES NEW EXPANDED METAL PRODUCT LINE: MICROFORM®

Precision Engineered Expanded Metals for Specialized Applications

 

Heavy Gauge MicroFormONTARIO, Calif. – July 25, 2019 – Manufacturer and designer of expanded metal Wallner Expac broadens its product line with the addition MicroForm®– its line of precision engineered expanded metals for use in specialized applications.

Responsible for the management, development, and implementation of MicroForm®, Sean Flora, MSME, Sr. Mechanical Design Engineer, Wallner Expac shares his thoughts: “After extensive design and development our team is proud to introduce MicroForm®. This new product offering has unique properties which afford us the opportunity to enter new markets and expand our corporate footprint. Accomplishing this required the combination of technical innovation and experience gained from decades of expanded metal manufacturing.”

Manufactured in Wallner Expac’s new climate-controlled environment, MicroForm® can be manufactured into light- and heavy gauge variants using common and exotic metals. Tight tolerances allow production capabilities to expand the LWDs from 0.125” down to 0.050” using materials with a minimum thickness of 0.002”. Post-production services include flattening, slitting, cut-to-length, stamping and more.

Mariana Orozco, President, Wallner Expac adds, “It’s always exciting to see a concept or idea brought to fruition. Being a part of the entire development process was both exciting and a valuable learning experience for myself as well as our whole team. The team leveraged its many years of experience to optimize our operations for the production of MicroForm®. Each and every employee played an intricate role in the creation and introduction of MicroForm® including the manufacturing of all the required equipment and tooling that was designed and fabricated in our state-of-the-art on-site tool room, and we couldn’t be any prouder of how our staff performed.”

Specialized uses for MicroForm® include:

Battery Technologies- Support Foils

Contrary to popular belief, it is the substrates– which are primarily composed of a paste or powder– that make up the electrically active material. These substrates are applied to a thin metal support foil that is wound or folded to provide a continuous layer. The electrolytes are formed from these substrates which are applied as a thin layer on current collector foils, such as aluminum for the cathode side and copper for the anode side.

EMI/RFI Shielding

When properly integrated into sensitive electronics, it can effectively suppress interference or unwanted frequency signals in aerospace, telecommunications, automotive, or other mission-critical systems.

Microfiltration

Our ability to precisely adjust the openings– including open area percentage allow its use for gaseous, solid, or liquid filtration applications.

Equally versatile for decorative applications, heavy gauge MicroForm® can be used for speaker grilles, shading, window and door screens, and more.

Additionally, the brand MicroForm® has been granted a registered trademark by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office.

A dedicated MicroForm® web page and info sheet are now available with more literature forthcoming. For more information or samples, please contact Manuel Menchaca, Sr. Marketing Manager, Wallner Expac.
