Producing Battery Compounds
Coperion provides ideal feeding and extrusion technology for producing a wide variety of battery components. The focus is on the continuous production of electrode slurries and separator films.
Ensuring consistently high product quality is one of the key advantages of the continuous production of battery compounds. Active materials, binding agents, conductive carbon and liquids are used as raw materials. These are fed either via independent Coperion K-Tron feeders or premixes. Precise adherence to the formula ensures the high quality of the end products. Certain raw materials are partly toxic and/or abrasive. For this reason, processing in the Coperion ZSK extruder takes place under controlled conditions, from feeding the raw materials through to discharging the compound. Feeding the raw materials with dust-tight equipment is just as important as avoiding metal contamination in the end product. Furthermore, ZSK extrusion systems intended for producing battery compounds are designed in compliance with stringent explosion protection regulations due to the raw materials.
