Strip Tinning


Established in 1957, Strip Tinning boasts a storied legacy of supplying components to a worldwide Tier 1 OEM base, catering to the most renowned car brands across the globe. The company's automotive glazing products are meticulously crafted to offer drivers an unparalleled view of the road in various weather conditions, prioritizing safety above all else.

In 2019, Strip Tinning harnessed its expertise to introduce ST Flex, an expanding range of flexible printed circuits tailored for the burgeoning Electric Vehicle market. Building upon its esteemed reputation for top-notch engineering and a globally recognised customer base, our products are now integrated into an ever-growing number of vehicles across the world. Strip Tinning is headquartered in Birmingham, where it employs over 130 skilled individuals at its cutting-edge facilities.

Battery Electronics for electric vehicle battery systems are crucial components overseeing arrays of individual cells. These complex systems are responsible for monitoring temperature and charging within battery packs to ensure optimal service life. Effective control of charge equalisation is paramount in maximizing the longevity of these batteries.

Every rechargeable battery necessitates a Battery Management System (BMS) to monitor the State of Health (SOH), assessing the current voltage and temperature. The BMS takes corrective actions based on the collected data.

The infrastructure that gathers data for the BMS interpretation is termed Battery Electronics. Initially hard-wired in early electric vehicle batteries, technological advancements have led to the adoption of Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) to simplify assembly. Due to space constraints and geometric requirements, Flexible Printed Circuits (FPC) have become the prevailing solution.

Initially, Strip Tinning's involvement focused on FPCs, replacing traditional wiring harnesses. FPCs offered advantages such as weight savings, increased complexity, and simplified assembly. The use of FPC technology surpasses what conventional wiring solutions can achieve.

There is a growing interest in our modular solutions, particularly Contacting Modules. These modules leverage our extensive in-house expertise in FPC, Plastic, and Busbar technologies. The end product, adaptable for cylindrical, prismatic, or pouch cells, serves as a single unit facilitating electrical connections between cells while monitoring crucial temperature and charging functions. This approach simplifies the assembly process and enhances the efficiency of the supply chain for our end customers.
