Tamtron (formerly Lahti Precision) supply machines and automation for the production and further processing of battery metals on a wide scale for all parts of the processes, from the reception of the raw materials to their transfer, dosing, weighing, and packaging of the final products. Our customers are manufacturers of battery metals, battery cathode materials, and battery recycling companies. Processed materials include, for example, cobalt, nickel, lithium, manganese, the precursor of cathode materials, and the so-called black pulp.
The proliferation of various electric vehicles and other electrical devices has exploded the need for battery production and raised the battery industry to an upward trend. The battery industry needs, e.g., sack handling equipment and dosing systems for processing, storing, and transporting cathode materials and their precursors used to manufacture lithium-ion batteries.
In addition, facilities related to the recycling of battery materials will increase significantly in the next few years. For this emerging industry, Tamtron offers solid experience in the required processing systems and equipment for various powdered materials.
We deliver sustainable solutions to the battery industry
We have made versatile use of our extensive experience for various weighing, dosing, and automation solutions over the past few years by making several equipment deliveries to companies operating within the battery industry. The delivery entities have included unloading and loading stations for big bags, loading stations for IBC containers, a mixing reactor, LIW feeders (Loss in Weight), totalizing hopper scales, floor scales, and cup and conveyor belt scales.
In addition, we have delivered the necessary local control centers and software with their user interfaces. With these connections, it is possible that parent systems can be managed agilely according to the customer’s needs. Then, they fulfill the requirements of reporting and function data. To ensure a smooth start of the production, we have also provided installation supervision, commissioning, and training.
As an example of the deliveries, Tamtron supplied Fortum’s hydrometallurgical recycling plant, under construction in Harjavalta, with a demanding weighing and dosing technology for processing the main raw material flows. In this way, we participate in building the ecosystem for the Finnish and European battery industry and increasing self-sufficiency in Europe and Finland.

Experience and reliability at Tamtron are the customer criteria to choose a supplier
Several customers in the battery industry have chosen Tamtron as their technology supplier because of the reliability of critical equipment, especially in processing plants that operate around the clock.
When production disruptions can be minimized, operators can focus on what is essential, and production is thus as efficient as possible. The accuracy of dosing- and weighing solutions is necessary, especially with more expensive raw materials. This can only be achieved with a long experience with the various raw materials, the right technology and component choices, and optimizing the equipment’s usability.
The seamless cooperation of devices and automation completes an efficient, error-free end result. Tamtron’s strong expert and maintenance organization enables our customers’ processes to function as smoothly as possible during their operation.
In all of our deliveries, we have aimed to consider and emphasize durable and sustainably produced solutions with high usability and maintainability. In addition, occupational safety and ergonomics have been extensively evaluated in the equipment solutions.
The digital service takes over material flows also in the battery industry
We have developed our digital mScales weighing service, which provides up-to-date material handling and entertaining information to all stakeholders, regardless of location. The mScales service can also be integrated into the company’s business systems so that data is fully automated without the possibility of human error, including inventory management or invoicing.
The goal is to comprehensively monitor the material flows and use the data collected to manage them. The mScales service can also be widely used by battery industry companies.
