Dürr aims at automotive battery makers with Techno Smart deal
German battery equipment maker Dürr Systems has teamed up with Techno Smart on electrode coating system technology.
is benefiting from the growing demand for small-format lithium-ion batteries for hearing aids, headphones and other mobile electrical devices. In the first half of 2020, among others, a major contract was received from a battery manufacturer in Germany.

However, the biggest growth driver in the market for battery manufacturing technology is electromobility. For the large amounts of electrodes required for e-car batteries, Techno Smart offers a highly efficient, proven and robust process. The slurry is applied on the first side by a slot die over a backing roller and becomes dry directly afterwards. After leaving the dryer in the first pass, the foil is turned and the second side is coated and dried following the same process.

“With our cooperation, we combine our market-leading drying and solvent recovery technologies with the proven coating solutions of Techno Smart for e-car batteries,” said Dr. Daniel Schmitt, CEO of Dürr’s Clean Technology Systems division. “That way, we create a unique portfolio in the market, where we can effectively support the development of battery manufacturing for e-mobility as an experienced partner of the automotive industry.”

The Dürr Group also supplies gluing technology for battery modules and coolant filling systems for batteries as well as final assembly and testing systems for electric cars.

With an order intake of just under € 400 million, production technology for electric cars already accounted for 22% of the order volume in the automotive business last year. Despite the corona crisis, Dürr says it was able to significantly increase incoming orders in the e-mobility business in the first half of the year.
