TEESMAT project organises a series of webinars with the Service Providers presenting the characterization techniques and user cases.
The second webinar, titled ‘In line quality control, digitalization and traceability of battery electrodes during all process steps’, will be presented by the expert Ph.D Catalina Gutierrez, International Sales Engineer at IN-CORE Systèmes
Involved in the battery inspection since 2005, IN-CORE has developed several tools installed on the production lines to control the quality of the electrodes. The quality inspection LineaVision, based on high accurate line sensors, controls 100% of the electrode’ surface on both sides and checks the product compliance with quality request. During the electrode manufacturing the most important is to check very precisely all geometrical parameters which influence directly the electrodes performances. By identifying the coating process drift in real time, LineaVision contributes to reduce waste, improve yield and therefore participates in manufacturing costs optimization. LineaTrack, installed in the coating line, is IN-CORE’ tool to serialize each individual electrode whatever the coating pattern by engraving the unique 2D code. This code, which is timestamped and broadcasted in the MES/ERP, is used to link all essential parameters to each individual electrode including the quality status given by LineaVision. This is what we call full digitalization solution perfectly customized to the electrodes manufacturing level.
Digitalization is key to EU Li-ion battery industry to develop competitive, high quality battery manufacturing capacities, integrating the 4.0 industry concept.
Description of the characterization technique that will be presented:
- Automatic inspection solutions for quality control: dimensional and position control, trop/bottom coating alignment, defect detection
- 2D data matrix code generation, marking and reading
- Association between the code and measured characteristics
- Live data broadcast
- Data link
Ph.D Catalina Gutierrez is an engineer with Ph.D in mechanics and manufacturing processes. With a multi-cultural background, she joined the sales team of IN-CORE Systèmes 4 years ago and has been handling with the technical and commercial requirements of the highly-demanding industries of Li-Ion Battery and High-Security Paper & Printing.

Energy is one of the keystones of prosperity in the European Union. Access to advanced characterisation solutions enables industry to apply a knowledge-based approach, which is essential to accelerate innovation and reduce the cost of technologies.
Battery energy storage plays a major role in the ongoing transition to a decarbonised and clean energy system. The development of a competitive battery value chain in Europe is one of the top priorities of the European Commission.
TEESMAT – the Open Innovation Test Bed for Electrochemical Energy Storage Materials – brings a comprehensive response to the critical bottlenecks faced by EU stakeholders in the field of electrochemical energy storage materials. It leverages EU know-how & expertise from 11 countries and facilitates access to physical facilities, usable data, and industrially relevant services based on novel characterisation solutions.
The main impact of TEESMAT lays in setting up & implementing a financially sustainable Open Innovation Test Bed whose techniques and services address diverse problems faced in the development of clean, safe, high-performance battery solution.
TEESMAT is an EU project that has received funding from the H2020, under Grant Agreement n 814106 (H2020-NMBP-TO-IND-2018).
