Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries are changing the world. With skyrocketing demand for electric vehicles and other battery-powered products, battery manufacturers are under intense pressure to increase throughput, maximize yield, and produce batteries of the highest quality, energy density and long-term reliability.
The pole-coating step is a key link in the process for manufacturing high-quality lithium-ion batteries. Learn how the process works and how a coating machine manufacturer adopted Kollmorgen direct drive technology to modify the machine’s motion control. The result is significantly improved accuracy at a micron scale, even as production speed increased by more than 33%.
