    Manufacturing Analytics to Improve Battery Quality and Accelerate Factory Ramp

    The battery industry is racing to develop new manufacturing capacity as the EV and energy storage industries continue to outpace market expectations. Companies across the battery ecosystem have begun building new factories while facing the reality of long yield ramp times, supply chain immaturity, and a shortage of expertise — the typical gigafactory will take several years & billions in investment before reaching profitability.

    In this webinar, we’ll review the industry’s first software solution that enables battery manufacturers to rapidly understand cell quality and the link to upstream production and materials characteristics. This insight, when paired with the ability to control and improve production quality at unprecedented speeds, helps accelerate production ramp and improve overall cell quality.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Challenges around battery manufacturing scale-up and quality across industries
    • Understanding parallels from the semiconductor industry
    • Accelerating production ramp and improving yield, while reducing costs
    • Leveraging AI and ML capabilities to surface quality problems ASAP
    • How a fully integrated analytics solution can speed up battery manufacturing

    Korean Battery Recycling Industry in IP Perspective

    The explosive growth of the EV battery market means that a huge number of batteries will become unusable within the next 10 years. Tackling the challenge of recycling lithium-ion batteries is critical, both for environmental and economic reasons, and also for reorganizing the global supply chain to become more stable and sustainable. The government sector also is strongly pushing to promote effective battery recycling.

    Patent trends in battery recycling technology are an important predictor of future market trends. Our internal patent landscape analysis suggests that Chinese companies currently have a huge lead in patents, but U.S. and European companies are rapidly shrinking the gap, while Korean companies are relative latecomers but are actively seeking to become major players as well.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Current status and forecast of Battery Recycling business
    • IP landscape analysis in battery recycling field (focusing on Korean companies)

    The US Electric Vehicle Market – Ruled by Demand or Supply?

    Sales of battery electrics are surging, but the market is unsettled. High prices have hurt demand, as high costs due to lack of scale and supplier and manufacturer production problems have occurred.

    Short-term financial pressures and regulatory requirements, which do not require high BEV volumes in the short-term, enable companies to back off on the timing and extent of some of their investments.

    But 2026 looks a lot different than 2024, and the North American market does not operate in a vacuum. We will address what companies have achieved, where they’ve come up short, and what the future holds.

    We will also assess the outlook for industry participants as changes in production, manufacturing and design techniques, regulation, and battery technologies evolve.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Current Sales and Products forecasted to 2030
    • Company plans are in flux for multiple reasons
    • Regulatory impact is significant and unclear
    • The evolving Battery and Materials market adds uncertainty and opportunity

    Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) in Solid-State Battery Development – A Novel and Cost-Effective Approach

    Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) is a method widely used across industry to deposit a very thin layer of a material on a surface to alter its properties. The technique has been utilized in various areas of battery research, including solid-state batteries.

    A key challenge with solid state batteries is the high impedance at the interface between the cathode and the electrolyte. PVD is ideally suited to develop model systems to study and look to improve this problem.

    PVD also allows high throughput screening of different materials to accelerate new composition developments with enhanced electrochemical properties.

    The HEX series of PVD instruments has some key benefits for battery research. It is a cost-effective solution that is mounted below an existing glovebox, allowing continued use of the glovebox for other purposes and easy access to the vacuum chamber for modification and cleaning. The highly modular nature allows configuration changes without specialist tools, enabling changes in research direction without additional costs.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • PVD techniques are a valuable tool in a wide spectrum of battery research
    • Develop model systems to study interfacial phenomena
    • High throughput screening of different materials to accelerate new composition developments with enhanced electrochemical properties
    • Introduction to the HEX series of PVD instrument and its unique advantages for research
