Accelerating Battery Research with Hauschild SpeedMixer®
Efficient and repeatable slurry formulation, material deagglomeration and rapid prototyping with Hauschild SpeedMixer®.
Detroit/Hamm, August 4., 2023. – Battery manufacturing is a complex process that requires precise formulation and thorough mixing of materials. The importance of these steps cannot be overstated, as they directly impact the quality and performance of the final product. Hauschild SpeedMixer® has emerged as a game-changer in the industry, revolutionizing the way battery slurries are prepared.
During last year’s “The Battery Show”, numerous discussions with customers highlighted the significance of slurry formulation and material deagglomeration in battery processing. Davide Davi, CEO Americas of Hauschild SpeedMixer Inc., emphasizes, “The formulation of slurry and deagglomeration of materials are essential to battery processing.”
In battery manufacturing, the process of electrode coating begins with mixing, making proper mixing crucial for all subsequent steps. Hauschild SpeedMixer® offers a reliable and efficient solution for slurry preparation throughout the entire battery cell production process. Whether it is mixing the anode material, cathode material, or even the coating of the separator foil, the Hauschild SpeedMixer® ensures fast, reproducible, and high-quality results.
Integration in robotic systems and mixing under vacuum possible
The anode material, which typically consists of carbon/graphite, carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) as a binder/film former, conductivities, additives and deionized water, must be mixed homogeneously and free of bubbles. This can even be done under vacuum or in a robotic system. The Hauschild SpeedMixer SMART DAC, which works with centrifugal force, can communicate with other devices through its smart functions (IoT) and works so precisely that even the removal of the disposable cup can be done easily with a robotic arm.
Similarly, for the cathode material, which comprises Lithium compounds, Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) as binder/film former, conductives, additives, and N-Methyl-2-Pyrrolidone (NMP) as solvent, the Hauschild SpeedMixer® delivers exceptional performance. In some cases, the device can also be utilized for mixing the coating of the separator foil, typically made of PVDF.
Davi says: “Battery slurries are notoriously challenging to mix, but with Hauschild SpeedMixer®, researchers and manufacturers can achieve fast, reproducible, and high-quality results. By utilizing our cutting-edge technology, the entire R&D and manufacturing process can be significantly enhanced.”
Hauschild Engineering invites industry professionals to experience the Hauschild SpeedMixer® SMART DAC series firsthand at the upcoming Battery Show. Attendees will have the opportunity to witness the unparalleled performance and versatility of these innovative mixers.

About Hauschild Engineering:
The family-owned company Hauschild Engineering employs around 40 people and has been developing and producing the Hauschild SpeedMixer® at its headquarters in Hamm/Germany since 1974, selling it directly or with partners all over the world.
The original Hauschild SpeedMixer® offers perfect mixing results from a few grams or milliliters up to ten kilograms or sixteen liters. The machines are mostly used in laboratories that mix substances as part of their research and development work, as well as by companies that require small batch mixes for quality assurance.
Within few minutes, different liquids can be mixed with pastes or powders, pastes with powders, powders with powders, and substances with different chemical and physical properties – all without the use of stirring tools. The Hauschild SpeedMixer®, including all components, are manufactured according to a highest-quality standards – made in Germany.
