Partnership Eirich and Siemens for the battery industry

Eirich and Siemens Digital Industries sign memorandum of understanding for cooperation in the field of lithium-ion battery factories
Eirich, the expert in mixing and preparation technology, and Siemens Digital Industries, technology and innovation leader in the field of industrial automation and digitalization, are joining forces to accelerate efforts to improve the efficiency of lithium-ion battery projects and to speed up project processing times. As part of this collaboration, Eirich will be supplying equipment and installations equipped with hardware and software products from Siemens. Over the next seven years, production capacities for lithium-ion and other batteries are set to rise tenfold, so it is going to be all the more important to optimize production.

2024 is turning out to be a really interesting year for the battery industry. Changes in battery production, technological innovations and efforts to rethink supply chain strategies are all on the agenda. In addition, the importance of sustainability and safety will continue to grow.
Eirich and Siemens announced at the end of 2023 that the two companies would be embarking on a collaboration in order to pool their knowledge, know-how and efficiencies in order to achieve greater successes together.

Looking at the complete lifecycle

The two companies will be providing the battery industry with suitable machinery and digital solutions and will support the entire lifecycle of these machines with additional hardware and software products. Here, both partners will be involved in everything from the original design stage through digital twins, simulations, commissioning and production all the way to OT/IT integration in the production lines and production facilities of end customers.
“We are absolutely delighted to be working together with such as strong partner as Siemens so that, in the future, we can help bring about decisive changes in battery cell production. By signing this Memorandum of Understanding and pooling the know-how of the two companies, we will be able to open up important new developments for the battery industry – developments that will be essential in order for this crucial industrial sector to produce more cost effectively, more quickly and more sustainably,” explains Stephan Eirich, Co-Managing Director.

Gigafactories are the key to climate-neutral mobility

Manufacturers of lithium-ion batteries are faced with numerous central challenges, as gigafactories for battery production present a whole new range of requirements for the existing processes – in particular in the production of electrodes. The combination of Eirich process technology and 170 years of Siemens’ expertise in the fields of intelligent infrastructure in buildings as well as in automation and digitalization in the processing and manufacturing industries will open up a whole new world of opportunities. Eirich mixers, which have been specially developed for battery cell production, will be equipped with new technological developments from Siemens in the areas of operation, simulation, and drive technology.
Marc Deyda, Siemens Head of Strategy & Communication Battery, gets to the heart of the planned collaboration: “To ensure that climate-neutral mobility is available for everyone in the future, high-performance and commercially attractive batteries are absolutely essential. To do this, we need to deliver optimized production transparency and fast processing speeds – but, above all, we need high efficiency, from product design to production launch and recycling. Together with Eirich, we will be working on the development of sustainable solutions and helping to shorten ramp-up times for so-called gigafactories.”

Eirich launches Product Finder – a new website tool
The mixing expert from Hardheim in Germany is expanding its digital services for customers with a new website tool that provides an immersive overview of the company’s diverse world of products Hardheim, February 2024: Eirich offers an extensive product portfolio covering a wide range of applications across different fields of industry. Following on from the kind of product search services that have become the norm in the B2C sector, the company will now use the new tool to guide potential customers to help them find the perfect match. Since the start of the year, interested parties have been able to enter their requirements and needs in the tool and see which of Eirich’s many products would be the perfect mixer for their particular field of application. This digital guide is designed for small-scale and laboratory mixers up to a capacity of 150 liters, which are used as free-standing solutions at the customer with no need for line integration planning. The search tool intuitively guides users through specifications and options before offering the matching mixer at the end of the process. Further options and accessories can also be selected with just a

High-performance materials for combustion chambers with Eirich mixers Development and production of high-performance materials for combustion chambers in gas turbines – using mixing technology from EIRICH
High-performance materials for combustion chambers with Eirich mixers
Development and production of high-performance materials for combustion chambers in gas turbines – using mixing technology from EIRICH Electric current, or electric energy to be more precise, is at the heart of what makes a progressive, advanced society tick. Demand for electricity is constantly growing, not least due to our increasing usage of information technology and telecommunications. Electric energy is generated through conversion of other forms of energy. Although the profile of renewable energy sources like wind and solar power is constantly rising at present there is no getting away from the need to generate at least some of the energy we require from fossil fuels. We expect the highest efficiency from power stations, so that the energy available in the fuel is converted with minimal losses to heat and electricity. The high process temperatures demand high-performance materials. And when it comes to developing and producing these materials, companies and research institutions regularly opt for the best mixing technology available on the market – i.e. for mixing technology from Eirich.

Practical Know-How – Mixing, Granulating, Kneading and Dispersing
EIRICH seminar events “Practical Know-How – Mixing, Granulating, Kneading and Dispersing” planned to restart in June 2021 In many industries, the procedural steps of mixing, granulating, kneading, and dispersing represent the quality-defining stage in production. EIRICH offers free one-day training events at the company’s headquarters in Hardheim four times a year. These seminars have been very popular for years, but since last autumn all scheduled events have had to be canceled due to the impact of Covid-19. New dates have now been planned to start from June 24, 2021, and it is already possible to register online at universities teach the basic theory of dynamic mixers (units with moving mixing elements and/or moving containers), they do not cover practical aspects. In order to expand practical knowledge and know-how, Eirich offers seminar events for employees of industrial companies and for university employees in which the company shows what can be done today when it comes to mixing, granulating, kneading, and dispersing. The seminars look at the modes of action and performance potential
