Stuttgart, May 2023 – At this year’s Battery Show Europe (23-25 May, Messe Stuttgart/Germany), Coperion and Coperion K-Tron will present their effective total solutions for continuous manufacturing of battery materials. At Booth 10-C45 in Hall 10, visitors can learn about the advantages of this efficient manufacturing process using twin screw extrusion. Solutions from Coperion and Coperion K-Tron span the entire process of anode and cathode slurry production, from intake, conveying and preparation of the active materials, to feeding and mixing in the extruder, to material handling of the finished masses to further processing. Every step in Coperion’s entire system is synchronized with every other one. Plant design, development and realization of the entire system with a complete containment concept come from a single source.
The focus of this year’s appearance at the Battery Show is manufacturing of active materials, and cathode and anode masses using continuous extrusion. Compared to conventional production, the continuous process is markedly more efficient. Along with increased profitability from reduced space, personnel and cleaning needs, the system also offers great flexibility with regard to different formulations and changes to the process. Moreover, battery compound production can be accomplished using either semi-dry or dry process when using an extruder.
