Primix has developed a money saving continuous electrode slurry processing method for lithium-ion battery manufacturing that far outperforms dispersions done using conventional batch methods. Tsumoru Ohata explains its operation.
Lithium-ion battery technology continues to advance, especially in key industries demanding high-capacity storage such as applications for automobiles and smart grid. There are two primary drivers behind these advancements— higher performance and lower cost. We have seen significant developments in three major areas, specifically, the use of nano-scale active material; technologies to control particle shape and the greater use of new conductive materials toward . . .
