Samsung SDI has kicked off a project to reevaluate its battery production equipment to boost efficiency, TheElec has learned.

Called V Project, which stands for Value Reengineering Project, the South Korean lithium-ion battery maker is aiming to reevaluate is existing production equipment to increase its productivity and efficiency, sources said.

Samsung SDI has formed a pilot line for the project at its research center in Giheung, South Korea.

One of the partners in the project is battery equipment maker Woowon Technology. This equipment maker has been the sole supplier of stacking equipment to battery maker SK On.

Stacking is a process where battery materials anode, cathode, and separator are stacked and is the core process of battery assembly. Sources said Woowon had a technology that could stack these materials in 0.4 seconds.

Woowon is likely taking part in Samsung SDI’s project as SK On is reducing its spending, they added.

The new processes developed from the V Project are expected to be used in lithium iron phosphate (LFP) production at its Ulsan facility. These batteries are aimed at energy storage systems. Samsung announced the construction of the Ulsan facility in January.

Meanwhile, Samsung SDI is making efforts to continue to diversify its equipment suppliers. It invited Lead Intelligence, Zhenjiang Hangke, and other Chinese equipment makers to a recent presentation of its line-building plan.
