Magnis Energy Technologies announced that its subsidiary Imperium3 New York (iM3NY) has produced its first full-sized prismatic cells from its New York Battery Plant.
Magnis said the first cells were produced using manual settings to refine the product design ‘for future automated production’.
“This is the first stage of demonstration of our ability to synchronise material science, engineering and process knowledge to produce to a commercially viable lithium-ion cell,” the company said in a statement.
“While the volumes would increase with fully optimised and automated lines, the current phase works towards production grade design and de-risks design unknowns involved in the transition from pilot production to full scale production.”
iM3NY CEO Chaitanya Sharma noted that the cells were produced ahead of schedule for limited testing and customer sampling in Q3 2021.
“Today’s achievement has been produced with long hours by a committed team that continues to expand,” Ms Sharma continued.
“We will keep working around the clock to achieve our production milestones.”
