Werner Mathis AG

Werner Mathis AG is a Swiss machine manufacturer specializing in coating and drying systems for R&D, pilot and production areas. Mathis works closely with customers to optimize, improve and develop processes for the battery sector. Mathis and CUSTOMCELLS® have been working together for many years, so that CUSTOMCELLS® can rely on the best coating and drying technology and thus a flexible design for the battery design.

The production of an electrode film (anode, cathode) requires high and individually adjustable line loads at the calender and high-precision calibration. The extremely low tolerances required for calendering are a challenge for the machine itself. CUSTOMCELLS® offers these technical requirements.
