Clamping force

In the context of batteries, clamping force refers to the pressure applied to keep the components of a battery cell, particularly the electrodes and separator, firmly together. This is crucial for maintaining good electrical contact and efficient ion transport between the electrodes, as well as for the structural integrity of the cell. Inadequate clamping force can lead to increased internal resistance and uneven current distribution, which can significantly affect the performance and lifespan of a battery.
