Altus Offers Innovative Systems from Rehm Innovators in Next-Generation Batteries

Oct 29, 2020

Electronic vehicles are growing at an astounding rate globally. This increase demands electronics components are highly reliability and with greater longevity. Rehm Thermal Systems, Altus Group’s pre-eminent supplier, is working on the development of new production technologies for solid state batteries, a game-changer in the future of electromobility.

Using their extensive experience in providing drying and coating solutions for battery packs, Rehm is using its expertise to help advance the electronic vehicle(EV) sector. The EV market was valued at $162.34 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $802.81 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 22.6%1. This huge increase requires vehicles that have a bigger range and are cost-effective. To help in this endeavour batteries are being developed with higher energy density, shorter charging time, longer service life, improved safety characteristics as well as environmentally friendly and resource-saving production. 

As a part of the ARTEMYS research project, Rehm is working together with institutes and industrial partners to develop materials and production technologies for solid state batteries – the promising next generation of lithium-ion batteries.

Altus Group provides capital equipment from Rehm throughout the UK and Ireland, including the latest drying solution. Matthew Jones, Altus Sales Director said: “Solid-state batteries will revolutionise the electric vehicles of the future. We are very pleased to be associated with Rehm, an innovator in the future technology for solid state batteries.

“Rehm is working on the cooperative project to develop scalable production solutions for the drying and sintering of oxide composite cathodes and solid electrolyte separators found in solid-state batteries. Their range of drying solutions are making a huge difference to the next-generation batteries required for EV.

“We have seen increased interest in the company’s portfolio of products which help the electronics industry to achieve the technology required for electromobility. We look forward to seeing what developments Rehm will make to enhance solid-state batteries and to providing our customers with Rehm’s innovative systems to help automotive manufacturers reach their goals.”

Drying the electrodes is an important step in the production process for manufacturing lithium-ion batteries. With its reel-to-reel drying system RDS Battery, Rehm provides a concept that can be used to achieve the drying temperature via infrared radiation, convection, or a combination of both heat-transfer mechanisms. The system is primarily designed for research facilities. With the ProtectoXP and ProtectoXC coating systems, Rehm also offers systems that provide solutions for bonding and coating processes for battery system construction and for power electronics.

Altus offers a range of systems from Rehm, with a team of experts ready to advise on the best solutions for specific manufacturing processes, including the latest solutions for electromobility. For further information visit www.altus.co.uk
