KeraCel Applications & Use Cases
Where do we see KeraCel products being used?
Ultimately in every product we use in our daily lives. KeraCel's technology enables the printing of active electrical, electromechanical and electrochemical devices, including complex structures inside devices. This applies to sensors, IoT devices, antennas, reactors in microbiology, medical and chemical application and to solid state batteries.
3D Printed Ceramic Battery
Fluidic Devices (Ex. Methanol Reformer, Electrophoretic Pump, Loop Heat Pipe)
Polymerase Chain Reaction Micro-Reactor
Electronic Wiring Structures (Ex. Chip Ceramic Antennas)
Internet of Things
3D Printed Electronics
KeraCel's First Product: 3D Printed Ceramic Battery
Wearable Technology is a category of electronic devices that are hands-free gadgets with practical uses, powered by microprocessors and enhanced with the ability to send and receive data via the internet.
Currently, we are developing batteries for phones and IoT wearables such as smartwatches and fitness trackers. KeraCel batteries will enable phones and IoT wearables to be lighter and last twice as long as with today's batteries.
Electric vehicles (EV) are automobiles that are propelled by one or more electric motors, which uses energy stored in rechargeable batteries.
Electric vehicles will benefit from a 100% increase in driving range by using KeraCel batteries of the same size as today’s batteries. Additionally, the high temperature resistivity will abolish liquid cooling loops for the battery and use air cooling instead, thus providing additional energy efficiency, weight, and cost reduction.
Drones, also known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), are an aircraft without a human pilot on board and a type of unmanned vehicle.
Drones and aerial vehicles will benefit from an increased flight time and higher payload due to a 30% reduction in battery weight. CAdditionally components of drones (e.g. the propeller arms, housing parts) could be printed as a battery as well.
Virtual reality (VR) implies a complete immersion experience that shuts out the physical world. Augmented reality (AR) adds digital elements to a live view often by using the camera on a smartphone.
VR/AR headsets and glasses will benefit from lower weight and a 3-4x increase in operating time as KeraCel’s batteries have much more energy and parts of the VR/AR device (temples, housing) can be printed as battery.
