Comau at ISE conference to present the key role of automation in battery production processes

Grugliasco (Turin) – June 13, 2024 – Comau, a leader in industrial automation, attended the 37th ISE (International Society of Electrochemistry) Conference, entitled “Electrochemical Energy for a Greener and more Sustainable Future Society”. The Stresa event represents a crucial opportunity to dig deeper and discuss future technological developments in the field of energy storage, addressing topics ranging from technologies for litium-ion battery production, to those that will represent, in the future, technologies defined as post-lithium, to hydrogen. The conference was attended by leading scientists and professors from prestigious universities such as Stanford University, the University of Connecticut and the University of Grenoble.

Aldo D’Ambrosio, Comau’s Battery Cell Segment Leader, spoke to the panel “Perspective on the next future of energy storage through batteries” together with key players in the battery industry: CATL, Sphere, FAAM and INOBAT will discuss the future of energy storage and generation

In his speech, D’Ambrosio highlighted the fundamental role of Comau and automation as key elements for growth towards the “Gigafactory” of innovative processes. These processes, often characterized by a low TRL (Technology Readiness Level) and developed at the laboratory level, benefit from digitalization to improve the development of battery manufacturing processes. Finally, another key point of the speech is the importance of training and reskilling industry operators, along with the transfer of technology from universities and research centers to industry. This is key to closing the gap between laboratory and industrial applications, enabling innovations to reach the market faster. 

“Collaboration between industry and research is key to overcoming current challenges and developing cutting-edge solutions. Our goal is to integrate our manufacturing expertise with new scientific discoveries to create sustainable and efficient technologies, which is why I consider participation in ISE important”.
