About 70 % of the production costs for lithium ion cells and batteries are accounted for manufacturing. Production research therefore can create an essential impact on costs with innovative machines, equipment and new processes. The objective is the development and prototypical demonstration of economic production procedures within the research factory. In this context, for instance, advanced cell stacking technologies are being developed.
Simultaneously to the development of innovative and integrated solutions for machines, equipment and processes, a quality control system is being established. This will contribute to an increase of process understanding und optimization as well as production yield by reducing scrap rates.
The research within this field is carried out in cooperation with the wbk.
