LITRONIK Batterietechnologie GmbH

LITRONIK is one of the few suppliers of compact, ultra reliable batteries for active implants anywhere in the world. For more than 20 years, the company has developed and manufactured these high-performance energy sources in a variety of performance ranges, and they feature, among other things, very high volumetric energy and power densities, low self-discharge rates and high operating safety.

LITRONIK supplies customer-specific solutions as well as standard products to a variety of manufacturers of pacemakers, defibrillators and neurostimulators, both within and outside of Europe.

The electrochemical systems behind the primary batteries at LITRONIK are based on lithium-iodine and lithium-manganese dioxide, and they cover three performance ranges for different active implants:

  • high energy batteries with lithium-iodine technology for implantable pulse generators, for example, pacemakers
  • medium rate batteries with lithium-manganese dioxide technology for implants that require mid-range pulse power, for example, pacemakers with telemetry functions
  • high power batteries with lithium-manganese dioxide technology for implants that require the highest pulse power, for example, defibrillators.

The batteries are manufactured in special dry conditions whereby the processes and materials are 100 percent traceable.
LITRONIK uses its extensive expertise in electrochemicals, materials science, powder processing, metals/plastics technology, plasma and laser welding as well as various chemical and physical analytical processes in order to continually develop more compact and more powerful batteries and thus to enable ever more compact implants.

LITRONIK has been ISO 9001 certified since 1999. Every employee is fully aware of the high standards of quality required for life-sustaining implants.

Located in Pirna, Germany, roughly 20 km southeast of Dresden, LITRONIK has two production facilities with a total floor space of 2100 m2. The firm currently has approximately 170 employees.
