ProTrak – Production engineering for e-mobility Energy Storage Journal

The German Ministry for Economics and Technology (BMWi) supports the technology consortium ProTrak.

Under the leadership of the Jonas & Redmann Group, the consortium develops process technology for the mass production of cost-effective lithium cells.

Electromobility represents the beginning of a new era in the mobility sector and for the electrification of drives battery technology is one of the most important levers for sustainable mobility.
Presently, battery cell technologies for automotive applications are still in their infancy and remain expensive.

Fully automating battery cell manufacturing and innovating production are decisive factors in reducing the cost of batteries, and thereby advancing electromobility.

The technology consortium ProTrak is focused on production engineering for manufacturing lithium cells and on technological innovations in the areas of handling, cutting, packaging, electrolyte filling, forming, and testing.
Protrak is dedicated to developing, prototype technologies for the industrial production of cost-effective lithium cells. The goal is the integration of a linked modular system concept and optimization of cost-intensive process steps. Through this, the project promotes the development of battery-powered electric vehicles and serves the implementation of the national development plan for electromobility created by the German federal government, as well as helping to establish a German battery supplier market.
