Electromobility and automation manufacturers have confidence in us

Festo began supplying the global growth market that is electromobility with customised solutions in 2012. Today, Festo advises and supplies major global players like Tesla and Lucid Motors. The key components in Festo's success are its broad product range including copper-free products, its services and engineering tools as well as worldwide teams with specialist know-how and solution competence, providing customers with expert advice in project planning and conceptualisation.

When do I need copper-free products?

There aren’t any binding industrial standards you need to comply with. Nor does the VDMA roadmap include any relevant information up to now.

Copper-free solutions are a question of quality assurance. Even minimal contamination with abraded copper can cause problems when producing lithium-ion batteries. The copper particles react with the aluminium electrodes, which impairs performance and results in the formation of crystals. Crystals and other electrically conductive particles that are larger than 5 to 10 µm can perforate the separator foil and cause short circuits.

If you're uncertain whether your application requires copper-free components, our application experts will be happy to provide you with quick and reliable advice and assistance.
