Rise Robotics' RISE Cylinder (11:15 am - 11:30 am ET)
Speaker: Kyle Dell'Aquila, Business Development
Engineers and OEMs designing electric versions of diesel-powered medium and heavy-duty machinery face runtime problems because of hydraulics. Hydraulics produce more heat than work which require large amounts of power and prevent commercially viable battery-electric versions to be developed. RISETMCylinder addresses the problems inherent to hydraulic systems and preventing battery- electrification. The RISE Cylinder delivers hydraulic-like performance and an unprecedented level of power. This solution, unlike hydraulics systems, is a self-contained package, providing a robust linear actuator solution that performs under extreme circumstances for extended maintenance-free service. Driven by modern brushless motors that turn proprietary steel-reinforced flat belts, and lubricated for a lifetime, this technology solution is engineered to perform.

Electronically conductive pressure-sensitive adhesives (CPSAs) can enhance the development of EV batteries through simplified and compact design, cost-effective and efficient manufacture, and stable performance. CPSAs form instant bonds and provide reliable electrical contact without mechanical pressure or cure times. As an alternative to costly silver-filled electrically conductive adhesives and solder for electrical interconnect and busbar applications, CPSAs can provide manufacturing efficiencies and cost savings. Adhesives Research (AR) has been designing, developing, and manufacturing leading-edge electronically conductive adhesive products for more than 20 years. Our adhesive technologies deliver exceptionally stable bonds to electrical contact points, even under extreme stress. We tailor an adhesive’s properties for resistivity, conductivity, and several environmental stresses, including shock and moisture resistance. Our product portfolio includes silicone, acrylic, and rubber formulations to ensure reliable performance over a wide range of harsh environmental conditions, including significant humidity and temperature fluctuations.

ResonantAcoustic® Mixing (RAM) is an innovative, high-performance mixing and processing technology that uses sound to mix virtually any material from nano-materials to simple liquids, and disparate powders to ultra-high viscosity pastes. RAM utilizes rapid oscillating motion (60 Hz) with a relatively large mixing vessel displacement (0.55 inches) to create up to 100 times the acceleration of gravity. Rapid and intense motion coupled with sound vibrations created by the mixing vessel movement are uniquely capable of mixing, coating, milling, and many other processes. RAM technology is common across the entire product line of machines from lab—scale (1 kg payload capacity) through batch scale production up to 920 kg, and continuous production.

Amphenol Advanced Sensors' Robust Early Detection of Battery Thermal Runaway (3:30 pm - 4:15 pm ET)
Speaker: Brian Engle, Business Development Manager
Robust Early Detection of Battery Thermal Runaway (REDTR) is comprised of a suite of sensor elements within a surface mounted electronics module that can detect initial venting of lithium-ion battery cells within 3 to 5 seconds within the battery enclosure independent of the battery electrochemistry, cell size, and pack venting strategy. The sensor suite-only needs to be within the battery pack vapor space for proper detection, and while consuming minimal power, can act as an alarm system for the BMS under all operating conditions. REDTR can observe multiple physical phenomena from a failing cell to indicating first vent as well as observe and quantify whether the runaway is propagating through the pack, allowing OEM's the best opportunity to provide rapid countermeasures to protect the pack.
