By using our agitator bead mills, the finest particle sizes can be achieved, improving their reactivity and surface structure. Batteries with higher energy density, faster chargeability, longer lifetime and lower costs are the results of our solutions. Convince yourself.

Grinding and dispersion technology

Battery materials of the future

Our application areas have a fascinating variety

Anode

The grinding of anode materials by means of our agitator bead mills forms a key role in the production of batteries with improved performance, efficiency and service life. This process enables the production of high-quality anode materials, which form the basis for high-performance and reliable batteries that can be used in a wide range of applications.

Our advanced technology is used to break down and homogenize anode materials such as graphite or silicon into extremely fine particles. This in turn leads to increased performance and improved efficiency of the batteries.

Fuel cell

Fuel cells are electrochemical devices that convert chemical energy directly into electrical energy by generating a continuous stream of electrically charged particles (ions). They are based on the principle of electrochemical reaction between a fuel and an oxidant. This reaction generates electrical energy.

The production of electrolyte membranes (e.g. proton exchange membranes - PEM) for fuel cells requires a fine particle structure. This is where our agitator bead mills are used in wet grinding.

Cathode

Our agitator bead mills are used to reduce the particle size of cathode materials and increase their surface area. This improves the reaction kinetics, resulting in a more efficient electrochemical reaction during the battery charging and discharging process. Higher capacity, faster charging times and longer battery life result.

Our technology is used to grind and homogenize cathode materials such as lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO₄) or lithium nickel cobalt oxide (LiNiCoO₂) into ultra-fine particles to maximize battery performance and efficiency.

Carbon nanotubes

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are honeycomb-like tubes with a diameter of a few nanometers. By disperising them in our agitator bead mills, the powder from agglomerated carbon nanotubes can be seperated and stabilised.The released surface area and the associated enormous viscosity increase during the process require a controlled dispersion process. The targeted dispersion enables the physical, electrical, mechanical or conductive properties to be changed - up to the orientation of the carbon nanotubes in the final application.

Multilayer ceramic capacitors

The use of our agitator bead mills in the production of multilayer ceramic capacitors from finely ground granules enables precise control over particle sizes, distribution and consistency. This influences electrode adhesion, sintering temperature control and the addition of additives to improve material properties. The resulting homogeneous ceramic structure enables higher performance and reliability of the capacitors.

Photovoltaics

The grinding with our agitator bead mills of photovoltaic materials plays an important role in the production of solar cells and other photovoltaic components. This process enables the efficient grinding and dispersion of materials such as semiconductors and pigments to maximize the absorption of sunlight and optimize the performance of solar cells.

Separator

A separator provides the insulating barrier between the anode and cathode of a battery, thereby preventing the short circuit within the battery. Nevertheless, it must allow the flow of ions within the battery. Ceramic coated films are often used for this purpose. To achieve a thin yet highly efficient ceramic coating, our agitator bead mills are used.

Mixing Technology

Battery materials of the future

Our application areas have a fascinating variety

Battery materials

Dry mixing of battery materials is a method of mixing solid components of a battery without liquids. Advantages are efficiency, solvent avoidance and homogeneity. Challenges here are mixing quality, agglomerates, contamination risks and process control. Thanks to our three-dimensional shaker mixers, these requirements for the mixing process are ensured.

Ion coating

The use of our mixers in ion coating makes it possible to control the thickness and composition of the coating precisely and homogeneously. This is particularly important when it comes to producing specific properties such as hardness, abrasion resistance, adhesion and optical properties. Fine-tuned control of the mixing and coating process allows tailor-made coatings to be developed.

Insulating materials

Overall, the mixing of insulating materials plays an important role in the manufacture of products to improve thermal, electrical and mechanical properties. It enables the development of materials that meet the requirements in various industrial sectors and lead to innovative solutions for modern challenges.

Magnetic materials

Our three-dimensional shaker mixers master the mixing of magnetic materials with ease. Be it in the production of permanent magnets, in electronics, medical technology or even other industrial applications.The mixing of magnetic materials requires a careful approach in order to achieve the desired magnetic properties and at the same time to ensure a homogeneous structure. After mixing and shaping, it is necessary to sinter the materials, that is, to compact them under high temperatures and pressures. This helps to stabilize and optimize the magnetic properties.
