On February 24-25, 2020 the Battery Tech USA Conference was held in Los Angeles.  This conference focused on the current status and the latest developments in the market for car batteries for electric vehicles. Achenbach-SES participated in order to acquire information in market development and the latest status of technological battery foil requirements.  A considerable part of the aluminum foil needed for the battery’s cathode as a carrier material is rolled on Achenbach OPTIMILL® Foil Rolling Mills and is then slit to the requested width on Achenbach OPTIFOIL® Slitting Machines.

With production volumes increasing, the manufacture of the cell and module, up to the assembly of the car battery, still takes place mainly in Asia.  However, further production plants are planned in Europe and North America. ACHENBACH will contribute to these expansions, amongst others, to include a rolling mill producing battery foil grades which will commissioned in Hungary in 2021.
