Battrion and Jagenberg Group partner to make Aligned Graphite® Technology the new standard for fast-charging EV cells

Swiss Battery Technology pioneer Battrion AG has teamed up with German roll-to-roll production specialist Jagenberg Converting Solution GmbH to supply anode pilot and GWh-production lines utilizing Battrion’s Aligned Graphite® Technology for the lithium-ion battery Industry. Aligned Graphite® Technology improves the performance of the negative electrode in a lithium-ion battery and enables fast-charging of batteries.

Jagenberg’s electrode coating lines equipped with Aligned Graphite® Technology allow the production of ultra-low resistance negative electrodes with controlled graphite particle orientation. These electrodes are a drop-in replacement for next-generation, fast-charging lithium-ion batteries. The Aligned Graphite® production lines can be supplied as turnkey equipment fully integrated into the state-of-the-art GWh-battery production environment.

The mass adoption of EVs has led to a huge demand for low-cost, high-performance lithium-ion batteries. Cell manufacturers are forced to scale up quickly to meet production targets and leverage economies of scale. In parallel, their customers, EV manufacturers, require significantly faster-charging cells. This drives demand for improvement both in battery technology as well as production capabilities, all while ensuring full compatibility with the established GWh-production standards and supply chains.
Swiss Battery technology provider and anode coating expert Battrion AG has developed the Aligned Graphite® Technology for the mass production of fast-charging lithium-ion batteries. By improving the microstructure of negative electrodes, the technology can reduce the charging time of lithium-ion batteries by up 50%.

Innovative technologies for processing web-shaped materials are the historically grown core of the Jagenberg Group and have been the focus for over 140 years. Its sub-entity Jagenberg Converting Solutions GmbH focuses on providing turnkey solutions for the battery and decor industry.

Now, the two companies have teamed up to supply anode pilot lines and full electrode production lines with Aligned Graphite® Technology to produce negative electrodes with ultra-low resistance for fast-charging applications
