Nail Penetration Test

About Testing

The market for lithium-ion batteries is growing rapidly – and therefore also the need for specialized tests. Having been involved in this field of technology from the very beginning, our customers benefit not just from our experience, but also from our flexibility and ability to adopt tests to specific needs.

No matter if you are a start-up company, development service provider or OEM – we will be happy to advise you on what you need for your battery testing system.



Nail penetration is one of the most wanted trigger methods for thermal propagation tests. A big advantage of this method is, that the test object is reacting immediately after the test is started.

A short circuit in the triggered cells lead to a thermal event of the test object.
