From R&D to full-scale production with one system
As battery technology continues to evolve, so does the necessary research and development (R&D) that must be done in order to bring new concepts to market. However, scaling up an R&D concept from the laboratory to a production line can be challenging.
Innovative battery manufacturing concepts are usually in an early stage that can only operate on a small scale. Being able to estimate the production quality and predict any manufacturing issues is vital. Matcon can be your partner from the beginning, helping process and handle powders and making sure each component is fully integrated.
We're experienced in designing systems that help our customers bring their ideas to life. From R&D, pilot production and even full scale manufacturing - we've got you covered!
We understand the importance of a smooth and efficient manufacturing process. That's why we offer a comprehensive range of services to help you every step of the way, from the earliest feasibility stage all the way through to full-scale production.
We'll work with you to test and model your process so that we can gain an understanding of the manufacturing challenges that need to be overcome. Then, we'll design a system tailored specifically to your needs.
This approach saves time and money in the long run and ensures that you end up with a product that meets your exact specifications.
As the market for electric vehicles (EVs) grows, so does the demand for batteries. But increasing production to meet this demand is not straightforward.
Battery manufacturing is a complex process, involving many different steps and a variety of materials.
Coordinating these disparate elements across a large production line is a significant challenge.
What's more, the production process itself is constantly evolving as battery technology improves. This means that manufacturers must continually invest in research and development to keep up with the latest advances.
We have helped companies worldwide create flexible, first-class, hygienic manufacturing plants.
Over the years, we have worked with both large multinational household names as well as smaller, locally-based companies.

"Inclusion of the Matcon IBC blending system has increased the range and quality of pre-mixes we can offer to our customers whilst retaining our high quality assurance standards. By being able to offer this flexible approach the use of Matcon equipment has provided us with a strong advantage over our competitors.
We have been very impressed with Matcon’s service from the testing stage to the installation and appreciate their ongoing high level of service and support."

"Alimenta is a supplier to the Norwegian food industry. We started up with blending and packing with Matcon powder processing system in 2010. Since then we have produced thousands of tons every year. We are very satisfied with the durability, the efficiency, the accuracy and the flexibility that the Matcon system gives"
Morten Anderson, General Manager
Alimenta AS, Norway
"Our investment in Matcon’s equipment and expertise to-date has provided a 100% improvement in efficiency due to being able to run our mixer and packing lines in parallel, rather than sequentially. Cleaning, change over and down time of our blender has been dramatically reduced providing a quicker throughput for each product.
This reduction of throughput time has provided us with the opportunity to increase our packing capability. We are therefore shortly due to replace our existing packing machines with a Matcon Powder Packer to simplify and speed up our packing operation. This will also minimise any contamination risk during the packing."

"I have a senior management team, and as such, I need to provide them with the correct ‘tools’ to do their jobs. My senior managers were involved in the decision to invest in Matcon, having looked at alternative solutions on the market. Each step of the way from blend integrity testing, through to layout and installation they were involved.
By doing this, my team got the best equipment on the market and they have taken it and run with it, increasing the business turnover considerably, and they have driven new efficiencies and principles into the business. I feel RAIN made the right choice, and that we have laid the foundation for considerable future growth."
