The production of lithium-ion battery cells is a complex process. Production involves three main process steps, which in turn consist of a long series of complex individual operations. There are three cell types: Pouch/flat cells, cylindrical and prismatic/hardcase cells. Depending on which cells are manufactured, the respective production steps differ accordingly.
- Electrode production (mixing, coating, drying, calendering, slitting, vacuum drying)
- Cell assembly (separating, stacking and winding, insertion into housing/packaging, electrolyte filling) and
- Formation and aging (degassing, capping and folding).
Battery manufacturing must achieve high throughput as well as excellent quality and tremendous precision.
