Reliance Mixers: Your Trusted Partner in Battery Production!


The core process in Electrode Manufacturing starts with the initial Mixing Step of materials. The subsequent steps of Coating, Calendering, Slitting, etc. come into play once the initial Mixing Step is efficiently and effectively achieved.

After successfully completing the Electrode Manufacturing Process, the materials are Stacked, Filled, Formed, and then finally Aged and Tested.

Below, we highlight the first step within the Electrode Manufacturing process – Mixing.

Mixing: Crafting the Battery’s Core

In electrode production, the journey begins with the creation of a blend known as “slurry.” The significance of this step cannot be overstated, as it exerts an impact on the final performance of the battery. This process is the foundational link between the active materials and the current collector, responsible for the transfer of electrochemical energy through the cell tabs.

The slurry is manufactured with a blend of powders, primarily consisting of active materials, mixed with solvent and binders. The precision with which this slurry is prepared can be the difference between a high-performance battery and one that falls short.

Reliance’s batch style High Intensity Mixer provides the basic application operations along with the mixing chamber and tooling required to give a proper mix.


Reliance’s High Intensity Mixers have its agitation shaft coming from the bottom of the vessel. The shaft is belt driven. This design allows for higher torque and mixing range than designs that have the shaft and tooling coming down from the lid of the vessel. Larger motors can be used when a bottom entry shaft
