BST Group

Electrode production and cell assembly in the Li-Ion battery industry.

When processing the material webs to produce lithium-ion batteries, absolute precision is necessary for a safe and high-quality product. Only a qualitatively perfect lithium-ion battery can meet the high demands of the end product.
One challenge is the exact guidance and positioning of the material webs in the individual processing steps, as different webs must be correctly controlled and measured in relation to each other.

BST solves this task by utilizing its broad product portfolio, which includes inspection, web guiding, guiding systems and automtation

Mettler Toledo GmbH

Weighing is a Key
From starting materials to a high-quality product, a battery runs through a lot of production steps, which lay the foundation for highest performance. METTLER TOLEDO supports you to provide consistency and traceability.

Avoid expensive waste
Expensive raw materials represent up to 60% of overall cell production costs. Weighing is used because it is the most accurate method of meeting high process tolerances for consistency in formulation and avoiding expensive waste.

Enable safety
Weighing is the most accurate solution for electrolyte filling. Even if it is possible to control the electrolyte flow, the accuracy of high-precision weighing devices can ensure 100% quality control.
