Get-to-know Limatica

Background

The battery industry is booming due to the rise of e-mobility. 35 new battery factories will open up until 2030 in Europe only.


Problem

“Battery Cell Aging” is a major bottleneck in battery cell production today.

Challenges:

  • Up to 14d processing
  • Immense storage capacity needed
  • 5-20% scrap rate
  • Limited insights into battery health

Solution

Limatica has developed a new approach to measure & understand a battery cell’s health within hours.
The MVP is live, functioning and will be applied to test production lines soon.

Benefits:

  • Increased data points: >1.000/sec
  • Reduced processing time: 90%
  • Reduced costs of cell aging: 80%
  • Contributed to SDG9 & SDG12 by reducing energy consumption & waste
Limatica: Combination of hardware, software & data analytics

Vision

Foster battery longevity
by better understanding the battery cell’s health and by precisely root-causing of (micro) defects.
Solving the cell aging bottleneck is paving the way towards battery longevity.
