Job description

The Specialist engineer has a solid experience and skills in the coating and calandering processes, in the exclusive field of the Li-B manufacturing.

He can manage an improvement in this process to obtain a stable and nominal production.

From a global point of view :

-         To assist Equipment Suppliers during the ramp up of manufacturing plants

-         To have a knowledge of most impacting parameters on the process (or put in place Design of Experiment to define them)

-         To agree with R&D team and Industrial team, process parameters to be applied on equipment

-         Define all measurement on products needed to characterize if process is answering product requirements

-         Analyze the results and if needed, to propose improvements to reach specifications or to be more stable (better yield)

-         In case of deviation, to be able to define the root cause and to propose actions plan

-         To propose a standardization of the parameters processes, to be more robust in serial production

-         To be aware of all new processes in LiB maket

-         To identify any risk in terms of cost, quality, … in case of new product to be manufactured and anticipate these risks on the equipment itself and adapt process accordingly.

From a technical point of view :

-         To master coating processes at high speed level > 40m/min (Slot die, solvent content, 2 layers dryers, …) and product characterization (homogeneity, flatness, …)

-         To have experiences in different LiB raw materials (LFP, NMC,…) and know well which products (mechanical properties of foils, slurry viscosity,…) or parameter will impact the quality

-         To have experiences in thickness tools

-         To master calandering processes (pressure,…) and product characterization (elongation,…)


Knowledge / Knowhow :

Process Specialist : technical knowledge related to coating & calendering (wet processes , thin electrodes, low porosities with NMC).

Expert to define a root cause, to engage analysis, to improve it and to standardize.

Experience :

5 to 10 years of experience process engineering into coating and/or calandering processes. Experience in LiB manufacturing is mandatory (even at pilot scale)

Qualifications :

Bachelor of Sciences in chemical engineering or physics & chemistry processes.

English is mantadory.

French & German optional.

Key behaviours :

Well organized, strong initiative spirit, adaptability to change and good anticipation skills.

Excellent problem solving and analytical skills to provide optimal solutions.

Some extra skills which make the difference :

Previous experience in Cell Design to Manufacturing.
