Stuttgart, April 2019 – At the Battery Show Europe 2019, taking place in Stuttgart, Germany, from May 7 to 9, Coperion and Coperion K-Tron will be exhibiting technology solutions for the continuous production of cathode and anode masses, as well as separator films. The focus at the Coperion booth 1032 in hall 1 is on the ZSK twin screw extruder whose process section will be on show together with a gravimetric feeder of Coperion K-Tron. Raw materials such as active materials, binding agents, conductive carbon blacks and fluids are fed either separately or in the form of premixes into the process section of the extruders using highly accurate Coperion K-Tron feeding systems. Conveying, mixing, shearing and the homogenization essential for obtaining products of a consistently high and reproducible quality standard take place in different processing zones in the extruder.
According to Oliver Beiser, Business Segment Manager Chemical Applications at Coperion, "Our ZSK twin screw extruder, combined with our Coperion K-Tron feeders, is a reliable processing system with a proven record of success on the market. The highly flexible design means that it can be ideally configured for the various process tasks involved in the production of battery materials. Its reliability, long service life and wide range of properties guaranteeing top product quality all add up to a perfect technology for this future-oriented market."
