Prismatic cells consist of large sheets of anodes, cathodes, and separators sandwiched, rolled up, and pressed to fit into a metallic or hard-plastic housing in cubic form. The electrodes can also be assembled by layer stacking. Lithium prismatic cells feature either single-row or two-row modules and the arresters are always on the same side regardless of the row.
Prismatic cells are either adhesive-bonded by welding, with busbars and support plates, or traction / form-fit connected with screwing/] or latching as joining technology and hole-busbars as a bridge. Lastly, prismatic cells can be fixed by gluing. This requires a light and elastic joining medium to avoid air pockets.
