Multimaterial 3D Printing Enables Solid State Batteries
By combining different 3D printing processes and materials in a single layer, Sakuu’s Kavian platform can produce batteries for electric vehicles and other applications with twice the energy density and greater safety than traditional lithium-ion solutions.
"Despite the advantages, SSBs haven’t yet found widespread adoption in electric vehicles. 'There's been a lot of solid state batteries designed, but they've never made it to production for various reasons, usually manufacturing difficulties,' says Dave Pederson, vice president of marketing and business development at battery technology company Sakuu. He describes a solid state battery as being like a layer cake, with a layer of solid electrolyte sandwiched between the anode and cathode..."
