How we solve Battery Manufacturing Problems

LCI’s circle feeder technology has found tremendous success in the Lithium Ion battery market.

The manufacturing of Li-on batteries requires the precise feeding of high- value powders to create the various components of the battery.

Common powders used in lithium ions batteries include:

Positive Electrode:

  • Cobalt
  • Nickel
  • Manganese
  • Iron Phosphate

Negative Electrode:

  • Graphite
  • Lithium Titanate

Feeding these powders present a problem for battery manufacturers, as the physical properties of the powder result in poor material flow when dispensed with traditional hopper and feeders. Bridging and ratholing of the powders is a common issue that prevents accurate and efficient feeding of these important battery materials.

The Circle Feeder has solved this problem for battery manufacturers around the world with its mass flow technology. The unique design provides the high accuracy and uniform-rate feeding needed to manufacture lithium ion cells.

Battery Process Flow

Benefits of the Circle Feeder

Lithium Ion battery manufacturers depend on the Circle Feeder because:

  • Prevents bridging and ratholing
  • Prevents segregation with mass flow
  • Flow splitting increases capacity and saves floor space
  • Lowers the total height requirement
  • High batch accuracy with difficult-to- handle material
  • Able to work with a variety of material with flow adjusting mechanism

All stages of the battery supply chain

  • Raw material feeding (mining)
  • Mixing
  • Calcination
  • Recycling
