Description

  The present invention relates to a winding device for obtaining a winding element incorporated in, for example, a secondary battery or the like, and a method for manufacturing the winding element.

  For example, a battery element used as a secondary battery such as a lithium ion battery is configured by winding a belt-like body composed of a plus electrode foil, a minus electrode foil, and two separators.

  Conventionally, as a winding device for winding a belt-like body, the electrode foil and the separator are wound around a rotatable core (rotating shaft), and the belt-like body wound after winding (winding body) There is known a method of detaching from the rotating shaft. However, the winding pressure of the wound body may make it relatively difficult to remove the wound body from the rotating shaft, and may cause damage to the separator and electrode foil during removal. . Furthermore, there exists a possibility that position shift may arise in the electrode foil located in the center part of a wound body, or the edge part of a separator by winding pressure. If such a positional shift occurs, the distance between the electrode foils becomes too large, and as a result, the center portion of the wound body may not be able to fully function as a battery.

  Therefore, in order to solve such a problem, a cylindrical core core is attached to the rotating shaft, and the belt-like body is wound around the core core. A technique has been proposed in which a winding element is removed, that is, a winding element composed of a winding core and a belt-like body is used as a battery element (see, for example, Patent Document 1).

  By the way, in the above techniques, it is necessary to first fix a separator to the surface of the core core, and then wind up the separator and the electrode foil. As a method for fixing the separator to the surface of the core core, firstly, a method of fixing the edge portion of the separator using an adhesive tape is conceivable (for example, see Patent Document 2). Secondly, instead of the adhesive tape, a double-sided adhesive tape may be applied in advance to the core, and the release paper is peeled off, and then the edge portion of the separator is attached to the double-sided adhesive tape.

Further, as a third method, a method in which the edge portion of the separator made of a resin material is thermally welded to a core core made of the resin material is also conceivable (see, for example, Patent Document 3).
Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 10-144339 JP-A-8-288287 JP 2001-185220 A

  However, in practice, it is necessary to fix two separators to the core core. However, in the first method, that is, a method of fixing the edge portion of the separator using an adhesive tape, two separators are used. It cannot be fixed uniformly with the end edges aligned. This is because the separator on the inner layer side does not adhere well. Therefore, in adopting the first method, in order to more reliably fix the two separators, it is necessary to fix the separators with their edge positions shifted from each other. Therefore, in this case, a complicated mechanism is required such that the two edges of the separators are pasted with the edges accurately shifted each time and the length is adjusted. Further, in this case, there is a concern that the accurate alignment may be hindered, and there is a concern that the meandering of the separator may be caused. Therefore, a more complicated mechanism for eliminating such a concern. Will be necessary.

  In addition, in the second method, that is, when the double-sided adhesive tape is previously attached to the core and the edge portion of the separator is attached thereto, the edge positions of the separators are shifted from each other as described above. It is necessary to fix. In addition, since the second method requires the use of a double-sided adhesive tape, the cost is increased and a separate mechanism for removing the release paper is also required.

  On the other hand, in the third method, that is, the method in which the edge portion of the separator made of the resin material is thermally welded to the core core made of the resin material, the edges of the two separators cannot be aligned and fixed. It's not. For example, the technique described in Patent Document 3 describes that the separator edges are aligned and thermally welded to each other, and the thermally welded portion is thermally welded to the core core. However, in the third method, an operation of aligning the edges of the separator and performing thermal welding and an operation of thermally welding the thermal welding portion (edge portion) to the core core are necessary. It will be complicated.

  On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 8A, two separators 103 and 104 to which a predetermined tension is applied are simultaneously heat-welded to the core core 102, and then the separators 103 and 104 are not welded. A method of cutting the side unrelated to the current winding (the left side in the figure) of the portion with the cutter 105 and consequently aligning the end edges is also conceivable.

  However, in this method, since it is necessary to prevent the core core 102 from being damaged, the cutter 105 cannot be brought into contact with the core core 102. Therefore, as shown in the figure, the cutter 105 must be operated in a non-contact manner with respect to the core core 102. In this case, as shown in FIG. 8B, the separator 103.104 is not welded. Part will occur. Therefore, if winding is performed thereafter, the non-welded portion is bent, and as a result, as shown in FIG. 8C, the non-welded portion may be wound while being bent. As a result, a portion having a partially different thickness is generated, and there is a possibility that troubles may occur in uniform and stable winding. Further, due to the bent non-welded portion, the separators 103 and 104 may be damaged or meandering may occur.

  The present invention has been made in view of the above circumstances, and an object of the present invention is to provide a winding device and a winding element that can realize stable and uniform winding without causing complicated mechanism and cost increase. It is in providing the manufacturing method of.

  In the following, each means suitable for solving the above-described object will be described in terms of items. In addition, the effect specific to the means to respond | corresponds as needed is added.

Means 1. Rotating means for allowing the cylindrical core core to rotate about its axis;
Separator fixing means for fixing two strip-shaped thermoplastic resin separators to the core core;
Electrode foil supply means for supplying the positive electrode foil and the negative electrode foil toward the core core, respectively,
With the two cores fixed to the core core, the positive electrode foil and the negative electrode foil are respectively rotated while rotating the core core based on the operation of the rotating means. A winding device configured to wind in an insulated state from each other through each separator,
The separator fixing means is
Thermal welding means capable of thermally welding the two separators to the core core in a state where a predetermined tension is applied based on thermal welding;
After the heat welding, the separator can be cut two sheets at a time, and includes a cutting means having a blade portion that operates in a non-contact manner with respect to the core core,
At the time of cutting the separator, the blade portion is moved to a boundary portion between the fixed portion and the non-fixed portion of the separator in a state where the core core is rotated to a predetermined angle advance side than during the heat welding. A winding device configured such that two of the separators are cut at a time by contacting the vicinity thereof.

  According to the above means 1, the two strip-shaped separators are fixed to the core core by the separator fixing means. After that, the core core is rotated based on the operation of the rotating means, and the positive electrode foil and the negative electrode foil are supplied toward the core core by the electrode foil supply means, and are insulated from each other through the respective separators. It is wound up in a state. And finally, a winding element is obtained by removing the whole core core.

  In the means 1, the two separators are fixed to the core core based on the thermal welding by the thermal welding means of the separator fixing means in a state where a predetermined tension is applied. Further, after the thermal welding, two separators are cut at a time by the blade portion of the cutting means that operates in a non-contact manner with respect to the core core. Therefore, it is not necessary to shift and fix the edge portion of the separator as in the conventional first and second methods, and it is not necessary to align and weld the edge as in the conventional third method. Therefore, the complexity of the mechanism can be suppressed and the increase in cost can be suppressed. In particular, in the first means, when the separator is cut, the boundary portion between the fixed portion and the non-fixed portion of the separator or the core core is rotated in a state where the core core is rotated to a predetermined angle advance side than during the heat welding. By bringing the blade portion into contact with the vicinity (for example, pressing), two separators are cut at a time. Therefore, an excessive non-welded portion of the separator hardly occurs on the side unrelated to the current winding. Therefore, in the subsequent winding, it is possible to avoid a situation in which the non-welded portion is wound while being bent. As a result, it is possible to prevent problems caused by winding the non-welded portion while being bent, and to realize stable and uniform winding.

  The “advance side” of “rotate the core core to the advance side of a predetermined angle” means the side of winding the separator.

That is, the winding element that has been wound is removed and a core core is newly mounted. Each axis of rotation can move between both positions. Further, the separator fixing means is provided corresponding to the winding position. In the heat welding means, the two separators extending from the attachment / detachment position (winding element) are heat welded in a state where a predetermined tension is applied. Further, after the heat welding, two separators are cut at a time by the cutting means.

  Thus, in the means 2, the two cores that extend from the previous winding element that has moved to the attachment / detachment position are still connected to each other without being cut, and the core core located at the winding position is heated. After being welded, two separators are cut at a time. Therefore, the separators are fixed to the core core in a state where the leading ends are aligned without aligning the leading edges of the separators one by one. Therefore, dramatic simplification in terms of configuration can be achieved. In addition, since heat welding is performed with a predetermined tension applied, there is no need to worry about meandering of the separator.

  Means 3. The winding device according to claim 1 or 2, wherein the blade portion is configured to be movable in a direction in which the separator is pressed against the core core.

  According to the means 3, the cutting is performed by moving the blade portion in the direction in which the separator is pressed against the core core. For this reason, the situation where the adhering part is peeled off due to the contact of the blade part can be prevented, and more reliable cutting can be realized.

  Means 4. Any one of means 1 to 3, wherein when the separator is cut, the core core is positioned so that an angle formed by the fixed portion and the non-fixed portion is an acute angle in a side view of the separator. The winding device as described.

  According to the means 4, the separator is cut in a state where the core core is positioned so that the angle formed by the fixed portion and the non-fixed portion is an acute angle. For this reason, it is possible to extend the blade portion to a position closer to the boundary portion between the fixed portion and the non-fixed portion, so that almost no non-welded portion is generated. In addition, smoother cutting can be realized.

Means 5. The core core is formed by winding a plus electrode foil and a minus electrode foil in a state of being insulated from each other via two strips made of a thermoplastic resin in a band shape on a core core that is rotatably installed.

  Note that, “at least a part of the surface of the core core is provided with a coating layer applying step of providing a coating layer made of a thermoplastic resin coating or adhesive tape, and in the heat welding step, It is good also as carrying out heat welding simultaneously in the state which piled up the said 2 sheet | seat with respect to the coating layer. In this case, since it is not necessary to heat weld the separator directly to the core core, there is an effect that the material of the core core is not limited at all.

  Hereinafter, an embodiment will be described with reference to the drawings.

  First, the structure of the lithium ion battery element as a winding element obtained by the winding device of this embodiment will be described. As shown in FIG. 1, a lithium ion battery element (hereinafter referred to as “battery element”) 1 has two separators 3, 4, a plus electrode foil 5, and a minus electrode with respect to a cylindrical core 2.

  The base portion 22 has a cylindrical shape and is configured to be movable relative to the table 14 along the direction of the axis C (can be moved in and out) by a driving unit (not shown). Thereby, the core 21 can be brought into contact with and separated from the core receiver 31. In addition, the base 22 can be rotated relative to the table 14 with the axis C as the rotation axis by a rotation driving means (for example, a motor) (not shown), and the entire core 21 has the axis C as the rotation axis. Relative rotation is possible. That is, the rotation driving means functions as winding power when winding the belt-like body 7.

The mounting portion 23 has a bar shape and is formed in a non-circular cross section (in this embodiment, a square cross section) to correspond to the cross sectional shape of the insertion hole 8 of the core core 2. Further, the mounting portion 23 is made thinner than the base portion 22, and a pair of tip crack portions 25 extending in the direction of the axis C are formed on the tip side surface portion of the mounting portion 23. In addition, a fitting recess (not shown) capable of fitting a later-described receiving pin 33 is formed in the inner peripheral portion of the tip crack portion 25.

  In the rotating means 20 configured as described above, the core core 2 is attached to the mounting portion 23 by the attaching / detaching device 13 described later. Then, by moving the base portion 22 relative to the other end side (table 15 side) along the axis C direction, the receiving pin 33 is fitted into the fitting concave portion, and the receiving concave portion 36 of the receiving portion 34 is fitted into the receiving concave portion 36. On the other hand, the tip of the mounting portion 23 is inserted. At this time, the front end portion of the mounting portion 23 is expanded to the outer peripheral side by the receiving pin 33, and the other end portion of the winding core 2 is held by the mounting portion 23 from the inner peripheral side. At the same time, one end of the core 2 is brought into contact with and held by the tapered stepped portion 24. Furthermore, the contact surface at the other end of the core 2 contacts the contact surface 35 of the receiving portion 34. In this way, the core core 2 is attached to the rotating means 20.

  The description returns to the winding device 11 of FIG. As described above, the two rotating means 20 can be moved between the attachment / detachment position P1 (right position in the figure) and the winding position P2 (left position in the figure) by the rotation of the turret 12. However, in the present embodiment, an attachment / detachment device 13 for attaching a core core 2 (to be described later) and removing the battery element 1 is provided corresponding to the attachment / detachment position P1.

  The winding position P2 is a position for winding the belt-like body 7 around the core core 2, and a belt-like body supply mechanism for supplying the belt-like body 7 corresponding to the winding position P2.

The adhesive tape attaching means 42 includes a tape supply means, an attaching roller, and an adhesive roller for attaching an adhesive tape 51 made of the same material (PP in this embodiment) to the surface of the core core 2 as the separators 3 and 4. And a tape cutter for cutting the tape (both not shown). In the present embodiment, the adhesive tape applying means 42 is configured to be able to apply an adhesive tape 51 having a length of exactly one circumference to both longitudinal edges of the core core 2 (in FIG. 6A). See the dotted pattern).

  The heat welding means 43 includes a heater block 43a (see FIG. 5C). Then, in a state where a predetermined tension is applied to the two separators 3 and 4 extending from the previously wound battery element 1 located at the attachment / detachment position P1, the heater block 43a attaches the separators 3 and 4 to the core 2 It is configured to be able to be pressed onto. Furthermore, the cutting means 44 is configured to be able to cut the separators 3 and 4 at a time after the heat welding, and has a blade portion 44 a that operates in a non-contact manner with respect to the core core 2. Yes. The blade portion 44a can reciprocate between a retracted position shown in FIG. 5 (e) and a cutting position shown in FIG. 5 (f) on the side opposite to the welding surface of the separators 3 and 4. .

  Next, a method for manufacturing the battery element 1 using the winding device 11 described above will be described.

  First, by rotating the turret 12 half-clockwise, one rotating means 20 is moved to the attachment / detachment position P1. At this time, the other rotating means 20 is positioned at the winding position P2. For example, in the example shown in FIG. 4, the rotating means 20 that has been located at the winding position P2 and has been almost completely wound up is moved to the attachment / detachment position P1. On the other hand, the rotating means 20 that has been located at the attachment / detachment position P1 and on which the new core core 2 is mounted is moved to the winding position P2.

  In the rotating means 20 located at the winding position P2, the core core 2 is mounted, but nothing is wound around the core core 2 at the beginning. In this state, first, the adhesive tape 51 made of PP is attached to the surface of the core core 2 by the adhesive tape attaching means 42 as shown in FIGS. As described above, in the present embodiment, the adhesive tape 51 having a length of exactly one round is attached to both ends in the longitudinal direction of the core core 2.

  Next, the heat welding means 43 is operated. At this time, a predetermined tension is applied to the two separators 3 and 4 extending from the previously wound battery element 1 located at the attachment / detachment position P1, and in this state, in FIG. As shown in (d), the separators 3 and 4 are pressed against the core 2 by moving the heater block 43a. At this time, since the adhesive tape 51 is affixed to the surface of the core 2 and the adhesive tape 51 and the separators 3 and 4 are made of the same material, they are mutually melted and simultaneously subjected to heat welding. Will be. In this example, the adhesive tape 51 and the lower separator 3 are welded, and the upper separator 4 and the lower separator 4 are welded. Thus, the two separators 3 and 4 are fixed to the core core 2 at the same time.

  After completion of the fixing, as shown in FIG. 5E, the rotating means 20 (winding core 21) is rotated to a predetermined angle advance side (to the winding side). Thereby, the separators 3 and 4 will be bent at an acute angle. That is, when the separators 3 and 4 are viewed from the side, the core core 2 is positioned so that the angle θ formed by the fixed portion (fixed portion KT) and the non-fixed portion (non-fixed portion UK) is an acute angle ( In this case, regarding the fixed portion KT, the angle θ is determined based on the tangent of the boundary portion with the non-fixed portion UK). Then, from this state, as shown in FIG. 5 (f), when the cutting means 44 (blade portion 44a) is operated, two separators 3 and 4 are cut at a time. At this time, the blade portion 44a cuts the sharp-angled portion, that is, the boundary portion between the fixed portion KT and the non-fixed portion UK or the vicinity thereof, thereby realizing cutting in which the heat-welded portion is located at the tip. it can. That is, it is possible to fix the separators 3 and 4 to the core core 2 in a state where the tips of the separators 3 and 4 are neatly aligned.

  Thereafter, in the winding position P2, the rotating means 20 (winding core 21) is rotated. When the predetermined timing arrives, the plus electrode foil supply means 16 and the minus electrode foil supply means 17 are actuated to supply the electrode foils 5 and 6 toward the core core 2. Thereby, the plus electrode foil 5 and the minus electrode foil 6 are wound up in an insulated state through the separators 3 and 4, respectively. When the winding of the belt-like body 7 is almost completed, the rotation means 20 is moved to the attachment / detachment position P1 by rotating the turret 12 halfway clockwise. And the remaining separators 3 and 4 cut | disconnected by the cutting means 44 mentioned above are wound up completely, and winding-up is completed by tape-stopping. Thereafter, the holding force of the core core 2 by the mounting portion 23 is released by moving the core 21 relatively away from the core receiver 31 and removing the receiving pin 33 from the fitting recess. It becomes. After that, the battery element 1 is obtained by removing the wound core core 2 around which the belt-like body 7 is wound together with the wound core 2 from the mounting portion 23.

  In the above example, in the case where the battery element 1 previously wound is already present at the attachment / detachment position P1, thermal welding is performed in a state where a predetermined tension is applied to the two separators 3 and 4 extending therefrom. A specific explanation will be given for the case where it is given. On the other hand, even when the battery element 1 wound last time does not exist at the attachment / detachment position P1, a predetermined tension is applied to the separators 3 and 4 supplied by the separator supply means (not shown), and the thermal separator and the excess separator 3 are applied. , 4 can be cut to achieve the same fixation as described above.

  As described above in detail, according to the present embodiment, the two separators 3 and 4 are applied to the core 2 by the thermal welding means 43 based on the thermal welding in a state where a predetermined tension is applied. It is fixed. Further, after the thermal welding, two separators 3 and 4 are cut at a time by the blade portion 44a of the cutting means 44 that operates in a non-contact manner with respect to the core core 2. For this reason, it is not necessary to shift and fix the edge portion of the separator as in the first and second methods described in the prior art, and it is also necessary to align and weld the edges as in the conventional third method. There is no. Therefore, the complexity of the mechanism can be suppressed and the increase in cost can be suppressed. In particular, in the present embodiment, when the separators 3 and 4 are cut, the cores 2 are not fixed to the fixing portions KT of the separators 3 and 4 in a state in which the core 2 is rotated to a predetermined angle advance side than during heat welding. Two separators 3 and 4 are cut | disconnected at once by making the blade part 44a contact | abut to the boundary part with the part UK, or its vicinity. Therefore, the non-welded portion of the separators 3 and 4 hardly occurs on the side unrelated to the current winding. Therefore, in the subsequent winding, it is possible to avoid a situation in which the non-welded portion is wound while being bent. As a result, it is possible to prevent problems caused by winding the non-welded portion while being bent, and to realize stable and uniform winding.

  In the present embodiment, the core located at the winding position P2 with the two separators 3 and 4 extending from the previous winding element moved to the attachment / detachment position P1 still connected without being cut. It heat-welds with respect to the core 2, Then, the separators 3 and 4 are cut | disconnected at a time 2 sheets. Therefore, the separators 3 and 4 are fixed to the core core in a state where the leading edges are aligned without aligning the leading edges of the separators 3 and 4 one by one. Therefore, dramatic simplification in terms of configuration can be achieved. Further, since heat welding is performed in a state where a predetermined tension is applied, there is no need to worry about meandering of the separators 3 and 4.

  In the present embodiment, the cutting is performed by moving the blade portion 44a in the direction in which the separators 3 and 4 are pressed against the core core 2. For this reason, the situation that the adhering portion KT is peeled off due to the contact of the blade portion 44a can be prevented, and more reliable cutting can be realized.

  Further, in the present embodiment, the separators 3 and 4 are cut in a state where the core core 2 is positioned so that the angle θ formed by the fixed portion KT and the non-fixed portion UK is an acute angle. For this reason, the blade portion 44a can be extended to a position closer to the boundary portion between the fixed portion KT and the non-fixed portion UK, so that an excessive non-welded portion can be hardly generated. In addition, smoother cutting can be realized.

  In addition, in the present embodiment, a PP adhesive tape 51 is attached to at least a part of the surface of the core core 2. Then, by the heat welding means 43, two separators 3 and 4 are stacked on the adhesive tape 51 at the same time. That is, it is not necessary to heat weld the separators 3 and 4 directly to the core core 2. Therefore, the material of the core core 2 is not limited at all, and a metal material such as aluminum as in the present embodiment can also be used. In this sense, the material of the core core 2 can be given a degree of freedom.

  In addition, it is not limited to the description content of the said embodiment, For example, you may implement as follows. Of course, other application examples and modification examples not illustrated below are also possible.

  (A) In the said embodiment, although the structure which affixes the adhesive tape 51 on the longitudinal direction both ends of the core core 2 is employ | adopted, it is not necessarily limited to such a structure. For example, as shown in FIG. 6B, an adhesive tape 51 may be attached to the entire length of the core core 2 in the longitudinal direction. Moreover, as shown in FIG.6 (c), it is good also as sticking the adhesive tape 51 also to the longitudinal direction center part of the core core 2. As shown in FIG.

  Moreover, in the said embodiment, although it is supposed that the adhesive tape 51 of the length of just 1 round is stuck on the surface of the core core 2, it is good also as sticking the adhesive tape 51 for 1 round or more. And as shown in FIG.6 (d), it is good also as sticking the adhesive tape 51 partially in the range which does not reach the perimeter.

  (C) Although aluminum was illustrated as a material of the core core 2 in the said embodiment, you may comprise by other materials, for example, resin materials, such as PP. Thus, when the core core 2 is comprised with a thermoplastic resin material, the process of sticking the adhesive tape 51 in the said embodiment can be skipped. That is, as shown in FIGS. 7A to 7D, the separators 3 and 4 are pressed against the core core 2 by moving the heater block 43 a. At this time, when the core 2 is made of PP, the core 2 and the separators 3 and 4 are made of the same material. It will be directly fixed to 2. Then, after the completion of fixing, as in the above embodiment, the rotating means 20 (core 21) is rotated to a predetermined angle advance side (to the winding side), and the cutting means 44 (blade 44a) is moved from this state. By being operated, two separators 3 and 4 are cut at a time.

  (D) In the above-described embodiment, the insertion core 8 of the core core 2 has a square cross section, and the mounting portion 23 has a square cross section, whereby the core core with respect to the core 21 (the mounting portion 23). 2 is restricted, but the cross-sectional shape of the insertion hole 8 and the mounting portion 23 of the core core 2 is not limited to a square cross-section, for example, a polygonal shape such as a hexagonal cross-section, It is good also as a cross-sectional oval shape.

  (E) The rotating means 20 in the above embodiment is merely an example, and it goes without saying that other configurations may be adopted. For example, in the above example, the receiving pin 33 is formed integrally with the support portion 32, but the receiving pin 33 is provided separately from the support portion 32, and the receiving pin 33 is arranged in the axis C direction with respect to the support portion 32. It is good also as comprising (moving and appearing) along.

  (F) In the said embodiment, although PP was illustrated as a raw material (and the raw material of the adhesive tape 51) of the separators 3 and 4, other thermoplastic resin materials may be sufficient. For example, other polyolefin resins typified by polyethylene, polyester resins such as polyethylene terephthalate, polyamide resins, and the like may be used. Moreover, both do not necessarily need to be the same material.

  (G) In the said embodiment, although the battery element 1 of a lithium ion battery is manufactured by the winding device 11, the winding element manufactured by the winding device 11 is not limited to this, For example, Alternatively, a winding element of an electrolytic capacitor or the like may be manufactured.

  (H) In the above embodiment, the adhesive tape 51 is described as one aspect of the coating layer. However, for example, a thermoplastic resin material softened or melted or dissolved in a predetermined solvent is applied to the surface of the core core. The resin coating layer provided by adhering and solidifying may be embodied as a coating layer.
