The Kavian™ platform transforms battery manufacturing. It smashes the supply chain and overturns the impediments of high-volume battery manufacturing. Batteries can now 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.

Solution

Raw material in, solid-state batteries out. Swift Print™ batteries in any shape and size. Gigafactory floors are in constant and sustainable battery production.

Printer

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.

Reliability

Repeatable manufacturing processes execute on each platform within a gigafactory landscape. 

Quality

Sakuu-connected software ensures seamless connectivity between the platform’s different stations. AI ensures that each battery meets the highest qualifications. 

Materials

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

01

Powder Deposition

Powder is deposited in designated pattern onto the transport substrate and automated WEB.

02

Powder Conditioning

The pattern then undergoes multiple stages to prepare it for polymer and metal deposition.

03

Layer Inspection

At multiple points, the layer is inspected to ensure no defects can be found. 

04

Binder Jetting

Polymer binder is deposited onto the layer.

05

Metal Ink Jetting

Conductive metal is deposited onto the layer.  

06

Stacking

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.” 

—Hassane El-Khoury, CEO of onsemi

Beyond Batteries with Kavian

Our Advanced Platform Solutions (APS) division helps companies reinvent complex device ideation, process, and cost. Pioneer new devices and markets, or improve upon existing. Breakthroughs start by printing with ceramic and metal in the same layer for integrated conductivity and complex channel creation. This includes new processes for building multi-layer additive manufactured electronic packages, such as thermal management solutions, or high-power package components that combine relevant technology segments.

Forge total device innovation with our APS division today.
