The Kavian™ platform can transform battery manufacturing. It aims to smash the supply chain and overturn the impediments of high-volume battery manufacturing. Batteries can be printed rapidly, efficiently, and sustainably. Raw material enters one end, and a fully functioning battery exits the other. It’s the watershed invention for mass-scale renewable energy storage production.
Raw material in, solid-state batteries out. Swift Print™ batteries in any shape and size. Gigafactory floors are in constant and sustainable battery production.
Kavian™ uses multiple processes on one platform to Swift Print™ fully functioning solid-state batteries. Multistage, integrated quality checks at each layer minimize the risk of error.
Repeatable manufacturing processes execute on each platform within a gigafactory landscape.
Sakuu-connected software ensures seamless connectivity between the platform’s different stations. AI ensures that each battery meets the highest qualifications.
Economization of raw battery material is integral to Kavian™ production. Less material is used because it is collected and recycled in the manufacturing process.
Spotlight on Kavian Process Stations
Powder is deposited in designated pattern onto the transport substrate and automated WEB.
The pattern then undergoes multiple stages to prepare it for polymer and metal deposition.
At multiple points, the layer is inspected to ensure no defects can be found.
Polymer binder is deposited onto the layer.
Metal Ink Jetting
Conductive metal is deposited onto the layer.
The layers are then stacked together.
"When we look back in time we can expect Sakuu to be synonymous with forever transforming battery technology and energy storage. The impact on business, the supply chain, and the environment will be profound.”
