Battery Manufacturing

High-accuracy feeding technology for battery manufacturing

High-accuracy feeding solutions for material-efficient manufacturing and precise adherence to recipes

For the production of active material, battery electrodes and the recycling of black mass.

One vital aspect of Li-ion battery compound manufacturing is the safe and reliable introduction of raw materials into the process. A variety of feeder technologies are available, depending upon the raw materials and process step. With comprehensive expertise and a wide variety of feeding solutions, Coperion K-Tron has the right feeder for every application. Coperion K-Tron feeders can be used in the active material sector for continuous feeding in electrode compound manufacturing as well as for black mass recycling. 

Coperion K-Tron feeders excel with high accuracy and reliability. The interplay between mechanical construction, the latest weighing technology and advanced control is critical for achieving the highly accurate feeding performance. Coperion K-Tron’s “Smart Force Transducer” technology provides high-accuracy weighing, sing weighing systems with a resolution of 1:8,000,000 in 20 ms. Precise control and process data on the bulk material allow manufacturers to profit not just from adherence to precise formulation, but also from less maintenance and downtime. A more stable process with reduced costs is the result.

Advantages for you

Feeders for battery manufacturing

Coperion K Tron Feeders for Solids

Feeders for solid ingredients

Coperion K-Tron's loss-in-weight feeders are perfect for accurately and reliably feeding even the most poorly flowing ingredients. They stand out for their exceptional precision, versatility, and efficient material handling.

Feeding with precision isn't solely about achieving a high 2 sigma value, it's also crucial for enhancing process efficiency, minimizing waste, and manufacturing top-quality battery materials. Consistently feeding the correct quantity of specific components improves the overall process performance by feeding exact amounts of raw materials. This leads to predictable results and performance for downstream equipment like mixers, calenders, or coaters. High accuracy is typically defined as  0.1 to 0.5% 2 sigma values, based on 60-second samples.

Liquid loss-in-weight feeders

Coperion K-Tron loss-in-weight feeders are particularly suitable for the reliable feeding of liquids into the process, as they provide accurate and continuous volumetric or gravimetric flow control for liquids. To achieve optimal results, the pump must be must be precisely matched to the liquid being metered, especially when variable viscosity is involved.

Coperion K-Tron has a variety of pumps and tanks available that can be combined to form liquid feeders. The feed pump is selected according to the material to be fed and the desired feed rate.
