Research in the areas of electromobility as well as stationary energy systems is a central theme at IWS in Dresden. Important contributions can be provided to battery fabrication processes based on the numerous IWS technology developments.
Coatings consisting of gaseous, liquid or solid, particulate starting materials are developed for customer-specific issues. The focus is among other things on modified surfaces and functional coatings for applications in battery technology.
Environmentally friendly manufacture of battery electrodes
Sustainable battery production with DRYtraec® – the new dry-coating process developed by the Fraunhofer IWS is environmentally friendly and cost effective and can be used on a large scale, giving it the potential to revolutionize the manufacturing of battery electrodes.
The increasing electrification of mobility also affects aviation. The battery is both a key technology and a bottleneck for all electrical flight applications. Its own weight significantly limits the range and payload of the aircraft.
