In order to meet the ever-growing need for lithium-ion batteries for the e-mobility market, Bühler has developed a unique process for the fully continuous mixing of electrode slurries. In partnership with Chinese battery manufacturer Lishen, this has provided an increase in energy density. Our electrode slurry manufacturing process also allows saving up to 50% of investment and operation costs. Increasing demand means larger-scale production, and our ContiMixer process combines the basic operations of continuous raw material dosing, pre-mixing, kneading, fine-dispersing and degassing in a single device. This cuts operating costs while ensuring optimum product quality.
