Puck conveyor systems developed for battery production and its high requirements
Batteries and other energy storage devices play a crucial role in electromobility, as they significantly influence the reliability, performance and price of a system.
Manufacturers of lithium-ion batteries are therefore faced with a number of important requirements that have an impact on the high-performance and cost-effective, fully automated production of high-performance batteries. Some of these important requirements are:
Overview of requirements
Flexible and modular automation solutions to minimise production costs are one of the most important requirements in the planning and development of battery lines and battery production lines. A high degree of flexibility, as well as a modular design for quick changes and further developments are among the most important requirements for battery conveyor systems and production lines.
High performance and output and high plant availability are a must. The automation technologies must be able to carry out and ensure the production of batteries in high quantities, with high process reliability and maximum cost efficiency.
Precise transport through the manufacturing processes, as well as the highest precision in the various production processes of the manufacturing lines, is required to ensure the quality and performance of the batteries. And this under a wide variety of demanding environmental conditions, such as dry rooms, clean rooms, etc.
The demands on processes are high and constantly changing. Here it is important to rely on scalable and flexible automation solutions that grow with the increasing requirements and can be easily adapted. With our space-saving puck conveyor systems, we can react very flexibly to the required line layouts of our customers. Overhead sections, vertical puck transport by means of a magnetic chain or carrier chain, buffer sections, fast infeed and outfeed, flexible distribution, etc. are no problem.
Conveyor systems for the production of lithium-ion batteries by modular automation
With our modular aluminium conveyor systems (plastic chain conveyors), we offer a wide range of high-performance interlinking solutions for battery production and the associated high requirements in terms of performance and output, environments (clean room, dry room) and efficiency and scalability in terms of line layout.
Our conveyor systems are space-saving and fit optimally into your production process. Our standardised modular conveyor system with different system sizes enables fast planning and delivery times at a good price. Our different system sizes allow us to react optimally to your product requirements.
Our conveyor technology solutions for battery production offer advantages for the following tasks:
- High performance transport and handling of battery cells
- Transport of battery cans and battery cases
- Transport of jelly rolls as part of the assembly process
- Transport of battery modules through the entire assembly process
Puck conveyor systems for single-flow transport of battery cans and jelly rolls in lithium-ion battery production
Our puck conveyor systems convince with a very high output (outputs of over 450 PPM are possible), very high precision and process accuracy, as well as very flexible line layouts:
- Powerful vertical transport with pucks
- Very fast infeed and outfeed
- Flexible buffer sections in confined spaces
- High flexibility in puck distribution
This makes puck conveyor systems ideal for battery production, battery assembly and battery processing. The modular automation puck conveyor systems can be easily adapted to the customer's pucks (adaptations to side guides, switches for feeding and discharging, stoppers and separators, etc.). Alternatively, we are happy to develop a puck designed for the product and customer requirements. In doing so, we also draw on a modular puck design and years of experience. We use puck conveyor systems for the single-flow transport of battery cans and battery jelly rolls in the field of welding and winding processes. Here, the puck conveyor systems ensure the high demands on precision and reliability. Due to the flexible and compact line runs that are possible with puck conveyor systems, the pucks can be transported right into the welder and winder processes.
