Abstract

See full text

An exemplary battery assembly includes first and second pieces of an enclosure, a flange of the first piece, and a clamping device compressing together the flange and a portion of the second piece to seal an interface. The clamping device has an interior area that receives the flange such that the clamping device extends continuously from a first side, about an outer edge, to an opposite, second side of the flange. An exemplary battery enclosure securing method includes receiving a flange of a first enclosure piece within an open area of a clamping device while the clamping device compresses together the flange and a portion of a second enclosure piece. The clamping device extends continuously from a first side of the flange, about an outer edge of the flange, to an opposite, second side of the flange when the flange is received within the open area.
