The Modular Factory Concept for Competitive Battery Cell Production

M+W Group has developed a modular factory concept for a cost-effective, competitive production of lithium-ion battery cells. Several manufacturing steps are consolidated in a single facility. These include slurry preparation for electrodes, anode and cathode coating, electrode and separator assembly, and electrolyte filling. These processes are followed by electrical formation and conditioned storage in the factory. Several manufacturing steps require very low humidity, constant temperatures, and special fire-protection measures.

We have been developing, planning, and commissioning Li-ion battery factories for customers from the global automotive and battery industry. This included modular concepts for large-scale production, optimized equipment and facility layouts, cost-saving measures for high competitiveness and cost of ownership simulations. In every case, our customers benefit from the experience drawn from these projects and from the extensive expertise in planning and constructing highly complex high-tech factories for other industries.
