Battery Cell Manufacturing

Battery Cell Manufacturing

In the manufacture of battery cells, anode and cathode foils are stacked alternately, each separated by a separator foil. In this process, the need for monitoring in the calendering machine is high. Double feeding of foils, a web break or insufficient web tension quickly lead to production errors or machine downtimes. To prevent this, Pepperl+Fuchs offers suitable sensors that can be easily connected to the controller and the cloud via IO-Link.

Battery Module Manufacturing

Battery Module Manufacturing

After battery cell manufacturing is complete, the individual battery cells are assembled into battery modules. To monitor this process, Pepperl+Fuchs industrial vision products are used. Vision sensors identify the battery cells and verify their correct number and orientation, while an industrial event camera monitors the entire manufacturing process.

Battery Module Inspection and Assembly

Battery Module Inspection and Assembly

To ensure consistently high quality, reliable inspection of battery modules is essential. Pepperl+Fuchs offers the appropriate industrial sensor technology both for inspecting the modules and for subsequent assembly in battery packs.

The Battery—in Focus in Various Industries

Whether for e-mobility, for the storage of electricity from renewable energies or for the electronics industry, the battery plays a central role in various industries worldwide.

The battery is the heart and currently the most expensive component of an electric car—which is why its production requires the highest quality and efficient processes. This is ensured by the appropriate sensor technology from Pepperl+Fuchs. A comprehensive portfolio is also available for many other processes related to the production of electric vehicles.
