BATTERY PRODUCTION AT GLOBAL MARKET LEVEL
M+W Group, a globally active manufacturer of production plant facilities with headquarters in Stuttgart, has been involved in the development, planning and realisation of lithium-ion battery cell production plants for international automobile and battery producers since 2008. The company provides assistance in reaching the goal of signifi cant cost reductions in the production of lithium-ion batteries while meeting the highest demands on production quality, which is a prerequisite for a long service life and battery safety.To this end, M+W Group developed a concept for competitive large-volume series production in a modular plant which bundles various production step modules. As a basis, this includesthe production of coating material for the electrodes, the subsequent anode and cathode coating step, assembly of electrodes and separators and electrolyte fi lling. This is followed by the formation and conditioned ageing process. Individual production steps require extremely low humidity, constant temperatures and special fire protection measures. For planning and realising their projects, M+W Group can rely on their knowledge and expertise gained in planning and building highly complex high-tech plants worldwide, for example in the semiconductor and photovoltaic industries.
