Lithium batteries are found in e-cars, electric scooters and many other modern means of transportation. Their production is booming and with it the manufacture of the necessary electrodes. For this purpose, metal foils, mostly made of copper, are coated with a paste called slurry.
Drying the paste on the metal foils is not trivial, but with the help of infrared emitters it can be accelerated considerably, as tests in our application center show.
Up to now, electrode slurry has usually been dried by hot air but infrared heat technology is now becoming increasingly established. Infrared heat radiation has a significantly higher heat transfer capacity than air and therefore he drying step can be greatly accelerated.
