Scientists to study on "flexible" battery systems
- Lithium-ion battery cells have actually until now been generated according to standard formats and also in rigid systems. According to German Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), flexibly versatile cells are necessary to ensure that batteries - as an example for electromobility - can be fitted precisely even in intricate rooms and also can save a lot more energy.
Its scientists are presently servicing the growth of an "dexterous manufacturing system." This must allow battery cells to be manufactured without inflexible formats or product requirements. They will certainly then adjust to the readily available installation room.
The so called "AgiloBat1" research study project started one year ago as a principle phase. In the follow-up project "AgiloBat2" the expertise gained to date will be currently included right into sensible application. First outcomes are anticipated in 2022, the final "active production system" must be offered at the end of the project in 2023.
Along with KIT, the wbk Institute of Production Technology as well as the Institutes of Applied Products - Energy Storage Systems (IAM-ESS), Mechanical Refine Engineering as well as Mechanics (MVM), Thermal Refine Engineering (TVT), as well as the Thin Film Technologies (TFT) functioning team are included, in addition to the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology (ICT).
Funding comes from the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Scientific Research, Research and the Arts (EUR4.5 million) as well as from the German Federal Ministry of Education And Learning and also Research study as part of the battery capability cluster Intelligent Battery Cell Production (EUR14.5 million).
