Laser technology for energy-efficient production of battery cells coupled with improved performance

Press Release from the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft from April 3 /

High-performance battery cells are a crucial prerequisite for electrifying the mobility sector. In light of this, researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen have developed innovative laser-based technologies for producing lithium-ion batteries that, compared to those produced conventionally, can be charged more quickly and have a longer lifetime. Furthermore, laser-based drying is a significantly more efficient means of coating water-based electrodes. Using a demonstrator, Fraunhofer ILT will present its forward-looking laser technologies for battery cell production at the Fraunhofer booth (Hall 16, Booth A12) at the Hannover Messe 2023.
