Brückner goes with electromobility

A new business field is booming

 

Lithium-Ion batteries are an important part of the growing electromobility sector, whether in e-bikes, electric cars, e-scooters or as energy storage units, for example in portable electronic devices such as notebooks or smartphones. In the batteries themselves the separator film is crucial for function, capacity, charging time and service life. For Brückner Maschinenbau in Siegsdorf, Germany this technical film is a relatively new and interesting business field in a very dynamic future market.

 

Innovative lines for the efficient production of battery separator films

 

In order to produce the high quality battery separator film (BSF), the company offers various process technologies for high production efficiency and constantly good film: The patented EVAPORE process as well as lines and components for the wet process. Several lines for the production of BSF have already been sold in the last few years, several of these are already successfully in operation and are receiving increasingly positive response from the market.

 

Brückner’s solutions are now starting to take off. Helmet Huber, CEO of sales and product management „After considerable development investments in the last ten years, and due to our very positive response from leading film producers, the demand for our lines for the production of separator films has happily risen sharply. We are also getting clear signals from battery and film producers that the confidence in investment will continue.“

 

Just recently Brückner invited numerous representatives from the electro and battery scene to Siegsdorf for the Battery Separator Days. The newest developments around battery separator film production were presented to visitors from all over the world in the Brückner Technology Centre.

 

Brückner drives Tesla: The Model S 100D has been a part of the Brückner fleet since this summer. It belongs to the newest generation of electric cars, is 100% electric, quick to charge and has a range of over 500 km. The Brückner directors (from left: Stefan Neumann, Helmut Huber, Michael Baumeister) are convinced that such a fleet vehicle shows the company’s increasing commitment in the field of electromobility to customers, suppliers, universities and visitors as well as in the local area.
