Battery manufacture

© Fraunhofer IPA, Rainer Bez

Battery manufacture is a core topic at Fraunhofer IPA. The focus is on developing and conducting research into practical solutions for manufacturing batteries and capacitors (caps) in the future.

The main work is on technologies for manufacturing electrode materials and applying them to collectors. In the field of cell assembly, our work concentrates on handling, automation solutions and technical cleanliness. We also develop digital tools as systematic solutions for the complete production process to optimize processes from an economical and technical point of view.

When it comes to transferring new storage concepts from our technical center to industrial production, we gave to overcome major technical and economic challenges. We offer our customers individual system solutions tailored to their specific requirements. This minimizes their costs and optimizes resource efficiency.
