Cellforce Group and Dürr efficiently set up joint mass manufacturing course of for double-sided electrode coating


The Cellforce Group and Dürr have collectively commissioned a high-tech coating facility for high-performance battery cells in Bietigheim-Bissingen. The Cellforce Group, a three way partnership of Porsche and battery specialist CUSTOMCELLS, efficiently constructed up the mass manufacturing course of for coating its electrodes over the previous twelve months, counting on the information, expertise, and direct proximity to equipment and plant producer Dürr.

The Cellforce Group (CFG) is utilizing a course of from Dürr that allows either side of the electrode to be coated concurrently. On this manner, the coating course of will be accelerated and the precision and high quality considerably elevated when in comparison with the usual process.

In standard processes, the anode and cathode supplies usually are not utilized concurrently however moderately one after the opposite on either side of a skinny steel foil.

The expertise for the double-sided electrode coating was developed by Dürr’s US subsidiary Megtec, which was acquired in 2018. (Earlier submit.)


To fee and set up the method efficiently, the Cellforce Group has been on web site at Dürr in Bietigheim-Bissingen for a number of months and has carried out manufacturing on a manufacturing facility line.

The Cellforce Group is presently constructing a growth and manufacturing web site for battery cells within the Reutlingen-Kirchentellinsfurt industrial park. As soon as this new web site is accomplished, the manufacturing processes arrange at Dürr will be taken over and continued immediately. To make sure sustainable operation of the coating line, Dürr can be supplying gear for exhaust air purification and the restoration of greater than 99% of the solvents used.

Cellforce Group GmbH (CFG) plans to develop and produce high-performance lithium-ion pouch cells for particular automotive functions from 2024. Cellforce is a three way partnership through which Porsche AG holds a 72.7% stake, with the remaining shares held by CUSTOMCELLS Holding GmbH. The managing administrators are Markus Gräf as Chief Working Officer (COO) and Wolfgang Hüsken as Chief Monetary Officer (CFO).
