Expectations of future electromobility solutions are rapidly increasing. Even more powerful batteries need to be developed. The goals are clear – a more compact design, more power, a greater operating range, and a longer life expectancy. With leading optical inspection systems, VITRONIC is the partner you can rely on to get tomorrow’s electromobility solutions up and running today.
Whether in cell assembly or module and pack assembly – the tiniest deviations at any stage can impact the life and performance of the battery produced. VITRONIC inspection systems put each process step under scrutiny and play an important part in making your battery a bettery.
Defect-free contacts are essential for powerful, long-life lithium-ion batteries. Even the slightest deviation can reduce their performance and durability. The weld seam inspection automatically checks each contact weld and identifies even tiny irregularities. As a result, only batteries with flawless contacts and high performance reach the market.
Ordinary visual inspections are all too often influenced by a person’s form or by external influences. They are neither objective nor comparable. Optical inspection systems from VITRONIC inspect 100% of all components without compromise - inline and without slowing down your production. For maximum safety and highest performance on the road.
Weld seams are an important element in ensuring the safety of all passengers in a vehicle. Therefore, rigorous requirements must be met in battery production. In cell housings, the weld seams must guarantee a hermetic seal over the entire life of the battery. Battery boxes, by contrast, are often integrated into the bodywork as a structural element. They must be stable and able to withstand a crash.
Surface inspection, geometry inspection, and weld seam inspection – our systems examine all critical areas. VITRONIC has the right solution that is easily integrated into all relevant stages of the cell and battery production process. This saves valuable time and money, and turns your battery into a bettery
The early detection of defects is central for the optimization of production processes. In battery module production, optical machine vision systems check the completeness of the module and the orientation of the individual battery cells and tags.
The immediate detection of faulty components and the elimination of imperfect production processes are factors that directly impact sustainability. That’s because flawless production generates less waste and reduces time needed for rework – which, in turn, means less electricity, less water, fewer raw materials, fewer extra shifts to work, and a lot less bad temper. All of which ultimately makes your battery a bettery.
Today, we also offer expertise in new intelligent solutions for all critical stages of cell and battery production. This is how we can help make your battery a bettery.
