KeraCel, a World Leader in Solid-state Lithium Ion Batteries, Announced a Breakthrough in its Multi-material Ceramic Battery Using its Proprietary 3D Printing Technology

There are significant challenges in producing ceramic solid-state batteries which KeraCel has overcome. As such, the ability to print battery elements uniformly and with seamless interfaces is highly challenging. Significant R&D effort has gone into developing the materials and the process technology required to successfully build the structure without any defects.

“There are multiple technology breakthroughs in our ability to 3D print a very sensitive part of our ceramic solid-state battery,” said Robert Bagheri, KeraCel’s CEO. "Our lead customers are evaluating our latest generation samples targeted at wearable applications. Over the coming months we will be expanding our engagements with tier one players in mobile and EV, while we continue to improve battery capacity as well as cycle life performance."

KeraCel’s 3D printed manufacturing technology will allow highly cost-effective production of solid-state batteries. These advancements in materials science, electrochemistry, and innovative 3D print process will allow KeraCel ceramic batteries to deliver 1200 Wh/l energy density, which is approximately twice that of standard Lithium ion batteries, and high C rates required by industrial and automotive applications.

About KeraCel 
KeraCel is bringing to market a next-generation Lithium-ion solid-state battery design and manufacturing method that will allow production of cells with ceramic-based electrolytes and lithium metal anodes to achieve energy densities 2-3 times greater, and improved safety, and at a cost of less than 50%, when compared to Lithium Ion cells today for same energy. The 3D print manufacturing process will allow virtually any shape or size of cell to be built for a multitude of applications without changing equipment or tooling under software control.

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
