Future Battery Technologies

In the Future Battery Technologies sector, we develop innovative processes and integrated production lines for the „lithium-ion battery factory of the future“.

The Battery Factory of the Future

Global demand for production technology for lithium-ion battery cells and modules is growing continuously and will rise sharply in the coming years, also driven by the expansion of e-mobility.

We have therefore set ourselves the goal of contributing to accelerating the transition to all-solid-state batteries and helping to build a sustainable and competitive battery industry in Europe. With our Lithium-Ion Battery Factory of the Future (LBF) project, we are developing highly efficient machines and processes for the fully automated production of next-generation lithium-ion batteries.

In the future, our customers will manufacture cylindrical battery cells and modules, pouch battery cells and modules, and prismatic battery cells and modules of Generation 3 (Gen3a and Gen3b) and Generation 4 (Gen4) in the LBF.

Yesterday – today – tomorrow: our contribution to the future of lithium-ion battery cell production.

Innovative Engineering for Battery Production

We are one of the few European mechanical engineering companies with extensive experience in the entire value chain of lithium-ion battery production.

Already today, we offer both individual machines, for example for laboratory production, systems for pilot and small series production as well as complete assembly lines and turnkey solutions for the production of lithium-ion battery cells and modules.

With regard to quality, stability and cost efficiency, we are constantly developing our production facilities in close cooperation with our customers.

The Battery Factory of the Future – a European Funding Project   

The European Battery Innovation (EuBatIn) is funded by the European Commission as an IPCEI (Important Project of Common European Interest) because of its important contribution to growth, employment and competitiveness of European industry and economy.

EuBatIn has an ambitious goal: to develop new technologies and processes that go far beyond the current state of the art and will enable major improvements in terms of performance, safety and environmental protection.

Several companies are involved in EuBatIn to cover the entire battery value chain: from the extraction of raw materials, through the development and production of battery cells and modules, to recycling and disposal in a circular economy. In this way, the project is helping to strengthen an industry that is strategically important for the future of Europe, especially with regard to clean and low-emission mobility.

The Lithium-Ion Battery Factory of the Future is a sub-project of EuBatIn and is funded by the European Commission.
