Battery production with the help of precise basis weight measurement
The experts for non-radiometric measurement of flat materials have now been able to gain a foothold in Asia's largest market thanks to the partnership with BPE Bavarian Precision Equipment GmbH.
Steadily rising demand"The demand in the battery sector is rising steadily. Not only in the industry, but also in the private sector, one can clearly observe that for example lithium-ion batteries will be increasingly used as an energy source in the future. This, of course, increases the demand. The partnership with BPE, which operates locally, is a logical step for us, since China dominates the global battery market and its supply chains," explains MeSys’ managing director Prof Dr Daniel Eggerath.
Non-radiometric web measurement of basis weight, thickness and moisture plays a critical role in battery production to achieve a high quality product. The array systems of the company from Greifenberg are therefore in particular demanded in China and have already been installed by BPE in a battery plant. In contrast to traversing individual sensors, MeSys solutions have a large number of fixed sensors that enable almost 100% measurement of the web product. The advantage, especially in the field of battery production, is that the measuring frame can also be used in the wet area and the adaptation of the wet layer (transverse and longitudinal profile) takes place directly behind the coating unit even before drying.
