The “aNIR-Battery Electrode Processing” allows a complete electrode coating, drying ten times faster and with only a fraction of normal drying power, down to 10 % of the present standard convection based drying solutions. Based on the company own development advanced NIR (aNIR)-platform technology, with the propriety “aNIR-Battery Electrode Processing”, an electrode coating up to 150 µm thickness can be dried in ≤ 2 s and for a coating thickness up to 400 µm ≤ 5 s is only required. Here it has to be explicitly addressed that the today's widely experienced limitations at accelerated drying rates, especially observed with infrared and laser-based heating/drying systems are not given with “aNIR-Battery Electrode Processing”, due to avoidance of cracking or resulting binder migration induced low coatings adhesion to the electrode substrates.

In addition the “aNIR-Battery Electrode Processing” enables it to be adapted and optimized to the specific solvent based coatings, a volume and therefore energy reduced final solvent treatment. Even an integration of aNIR-based booster configurations in existing battery electrode drying facilities can improve productivity and upgrade to higher coating thicknesses!

With “aNIR-Battery electrode processing” a new milestone of battery manufacturing due to higher capacity, higher productivity, lower drying energy requirements and strong reduced solvent treatment costs is reached – a game changer for the Li-Ion battery!
