Motolite Punched Grid Technology boosts battery performance

Updated Jun 20, 2024 | Same topic: Branded

A new feature that changes the game in battery technology.

Market leader Motolite has made its tropicalized automotive batteries more reliable than ever with its shift to state-of-the-art Punched Grid Technology, resulting in a 45-percent average increase in its products’ life cycle.

Already made using German technology, Motolite batteries were specifically designed for the Philippine weather and road conditions. With its adoption of punched grid technology, Motolite batteries can now withstand the rigors of daily driving, even under extreme heat and on bumpy roads.

Developed in Germany years ago, Punched Grid creates positive plates by punching the grid design into a sheet of lead. This promotes more efficient use of materials, enhanced conductivity, increased durability, and longer battery cycle life.

Motolite, the most trusted battery brand in the Philippines, is now the first to produce punched grids locally. This is consistent with its commitment to continuously seeking ways to improve its products through the latest and greatest innovations in battery manufacturing technology.

Enhanced Conductivity  

Compared to Expanded Grid technology, which is currently the norm for most automotive battery manufacturers, the plates using Punched Grid technology, which was designed by Motolite’s engineers using the latest multiphysics simulation software, have 24% higher conductivity versus previous designs, facilitating better electrical flow through the plates. 

Batteries using Punched Grid plates can better meet the increasing power demands of modern automobiles. They also deliver more reliable engine start-ups and a more dependable user experience.

Increased Durability

The Punched Grid technology improves on Expanded Grid technology by producing plates with a unique wire layout with strategically integrated reinforcing wires and borders.

Expanded grid plates experience tensile stress along the stretched wires, while Punched Grid plates only experience stress along sheared areas. 

The result: more corrosion-resistant plates less likely to form short circuits and are more durable overall. 

Motolite Adds More Punch  

In addition to Punched Grid technology delivering more precise and consistent grid quality and superior performance, Motolite has incorporated grid texturing into its manufacturing process to facilitate improved adhesion of active materials. 

This extra step boosts battery endurance and quality, resulting in a sustained increase in high-rate discharge performance and longer battery life. Batteries with punched grids can achieve 600 cycles more than those using expanded grids. 

The better grain structure and full grid border improve corrosion resistance, further increasing Motolite batteries’ endurance and service life. The higher wire density and improved wire layout pattern also facilitate lower internal resistance, which enhances current flow and electrical performance.
