Value-stream process: Cell manufacturing for battery production

Cell manufacturing

Bosch Rexroth relies on fully solution-oriented battery cell manufacturing. Cylindrical, prismatic, as a pouch or solid state – the cells are a critical factor when it comes to the design, performance and quality of your batteries. Bosch Rexroth’s solutions portfolio and expertise help you optimize the costs, quality and throughput of your cell production.

Value-stream process: Module assembly for battery production

Module assembly

Bosch Rexroth thinks in complete solutions – also for modules. Battery packs require high-precision positioning of the cells and time-saving module assembly with accurate movements and fast materials transport. In addition to the reliable transportation of heavy pack modules, professional tightening methods are also required here.

Value-stream process: Pack assembly for battery production

Pack assembly

It’s all about the flow: for example, heavy pack modules require reliable, safe, but efficient transportation. The Bosch Rexroth solution portfolio provides all the components for advanced battery pack assembly.

  • ACTIVE Shuttle: the AMR transports battery packs to the right place at the right time.
  • NEXO: a cordless nutrunner with maximum freedom and first-in-class process reliability and accuracy
  • Kassow robots: fast, precise, can handle high loads – best application features
  • Smart Flex Effector: Compensation module with active measuring function Increases precision in handling robots or industrial robots

End-of-line testing

When it comes to end-of-line battery testing systems for mass-produced vehicles, maximum efficiency, quality and safety are needed. This is why Bosch Rexroth’s end-of-line testing systems combine modern testing software with the latest generation of high-performance industrial converters.

  • Transfer system TS 7: Segmented, zero pressure accumulation conveyor, intelligently accelerates and decelerates workpiece carriers
  • IndraDrive ML, ctrlX CORE: drive and controls are the perfect combination for end-of-line battery tests
  • ACTIVE Cockpit: continuous improvements along the value stream thanks to complete and transparent data

Battery Recycling

Absolutely sustainable battery production

Raw materials account for a large part of the costs when manufacturing lithium-ion cells. With Bosch Rexroth solutions which are designed for production efficiency, you can reduce both raw materials consumption and costs in the long term. At the end of the product life cycle, battery packs are dismantled down to their individual parts. The individual fractions can then be sorted and reintroduced into the cycle.

As technology partners of the Circular Economy, we support reintroduction of valuable raw materials into the manufacturing process – with scalable and economical system solutions.
