Empower Your Innovations with Proven Expertise

Intelligent Solutions Backed by Industry Expertise

For the Visionaries and Innovators

Emerging into the Future of Batteries

For industry professionals seeking efficient production and innovative solutions, having a partner that understands and scales with your growth is essential. Matcon offers scalable solutions that can adapt to address the complexities of your battery chemistry powders and production challenges. Our systems not only help you achieve your goals but also ensure repeatable results, maintaining investor confidence.

For Gigafactory

Developing and Expanding Production Facilities

Due to the scale and complexity of production, gigafactory managers face unique challenges in handling advanced battery materials. Matcon is working on some of the largest gigafactories, providing efficient powder-handling solutions that ensure high-quality output while keeping up with increasing demand. Our bespoke systems are designed for seamless integration into the current production processes, providing a smooth transition to increased capacity and productivity.

For the Scientists Turning Theory into Practice

Pioneering Battery Research

The quest to discover new chemistries and sustainable practices is reflected in Matcon's dedication to supporting the shift from lab research to large-scale production. In response to the growing R&D needs and the pursuit of higher ROI, we have delivered solutions mirroring our full-scale system's parameters. This integration encourages a space where experimentation and scalability combine seamlessly with effectiveness.


Equipment for battery production

We champion the design and implementation of modular systems centered on Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) for the efficient transfer and processing of powders. This modular approach affords flexibility, enabling seamless integration of production steps, including filling, blending, feeding to downstream processes, packing, and cleaning. These systems are not only scalable but also ensure that cross-contamination is minimised, maintaining the integrity of your materials throughout the production cycle.

The use of IBCs in powder handling represents a pivotal shift towards more efficient, cleaner, and adaptable manufacturing processes. It enables rapid product changeover, reduces downtime, and enhances overall production efficiency—key factors in maintaining competitive advantage in the fast-paced battery industry. Matcon's solutions empower our clients, from early-stage innovators to global gigafactories, to meet the future of battery production with confidence and technical superiority.
