Battery presses

Isostatic Pressing is a proven technology for consolidation of powder and densification of solid materials. Metals, ceramics, composites and plastics all benefit from the use of isostatic pressing to densify and remove porosities and voids.

Reducing resistance using isostatic pressure

With typical pressures from 800 to 6,000 bar (11,603 to 87,022 psi) and temperatures up to 2,000°C (3,632°F), isostatic pressing has been shown to increase contact between components in solid-state battery cells leading to reduced resistivity and higher power density. Isostatic pressing is also used in the production of individual components that are necessary to drive the development of future battery technologies.

Common application areas include ceramics, carbon-based materials and electrolytes compaction.

That depends on the cells design for an in-situ (or anode-free) lithium metal anode concept Quintus proposes a densification step of whole pouch cells. This position would fit the isostatic press after stacking and pouching.

The batch characteristic is an important topic for discussion. Our simulation shows that automation of the loading, unloading and densification won’t be a challenge for the implementation of isostatic pressing in the overall process. Additionally, the speed of stacking/winding is limiting the process speed before densification.

We are open for different approaches, but focusing more on the pouch cell format. Concepts featuring a lithium metal anode or in situ lithium metal anode are very interesting for us on a production level of testing. We are testing solid-state electrolyte systems featuring sulfides, oxides and composites on a daily basis in our application centers in Sweden and the US.

The upfront investment seems high, but is rather low compared to other machinery used in today’s battery manufacturing. Calculations with a realistic cost-model we established, put isostatic pressing in the lower cent area per KWh. The calculation model fits different parameters, the ones that show a high impact are pouch dimensions and vessel size, which can be adapted to customers preferences.

The production series of warm isostatic battery presses are able to deliver pressures up to 600 MPa, while reaching temperatures of 150 degree Celsius (pressure media can be water or oil).
