Jagenberg Converting Solutions GmbH (JCS) is a German mechanical engineering company of the Jagenberg Group that supplies turnkey systems for the finishing of sophisticated web-shaped materials for battery and decorative applications.

High-precision slot dies

FMP Technology GmbH (FMP) specialises in the production of high-precision and customised wide slot dies for customers in the battery, hydrogen and electronics industries. FMP has in-depth expertise in the design of slot dies, diffusion-optimised dryers and simulations of these processes. In process engineering, the FMP complements the competencies of JCS in the design of equipment for electrode production.  In the future, FMP's portfolio of innovative wide-slit nozzles is to be coordinated even more closely with JCS's range of equipment, thus offering customers an additional integrated solution.

In collaboration with renowned German universities and institutions, FMP is conducting research on numerous projects with the aim of improving the efficiency of roll-to-roll production as well as the quality of battery electrode and fuel cell production. This knowledge, coupled with concrete short-cycle development projects, is another component in the strategic orientation of JCS to continue to be a strong development partner with innovative turnkey solutions for its customers. Battery production is subject to continuous development cycles in order to increase the efficiency and quality of both the production process and the product. According to a recent press release from the two companies, the acquisition of FMP will enable the two companies to dovetail even more closely and offer customers the advantage of direct access to the latest research results and short realisation times for innovations that are ready for series production.
