At Battery Show Europe, the companies will showcase their solutions for equipping gigafactories in Hall 10.

According to recent estimates, global demand for lithium-ion batteries will more than quintuple to nearly 5,000 gigawatt hours by 2030. To meet the enormous demand, Schuler, together with its latest new acquisition Sovema from Italy, offers machines and lines for mass production of the energy storage devices, especially for electric cars. The two companies are now introducing these solutions at the Battery Show Europe in Stuttgart from May 23 to 25.

Schuler’s and Sovema’s production lines can cover the key process steps. These include solutions for battery cell assembly and formation. During formation, the first charging and discharging processes are carried out. In addition, Sovema subsidiary Bitrode will be unveiling their new Bitrode Digital Cycler™. The BTDC™ is a precision charge/discharge test system specifically designed for high-capacity cells with regenerative capabilities.
