Vision solutions for EV battery production

Cover to tray assembly

Intelligent vision systems provide the key to higher productivity, greater efficiency and total quality assurance and help manufacturers achieve highest product quality, consistency in the production and minimizing waste.

Machine vision solutions can be used in several steps of the lithium battery production such as battery module assembly, Cell stack assembly; gap filler applications, tightening of modules, cover sealing and cover to tray assembly.

Pick & Place

Cover to tray assembly

The final step of battery assembly is the mounting of the cover onto the battery tray. When joining a battery cover to its tray, more than 100 fasteners can be needed. This requires a fast application to achieve a short cycle time.

Precise positioning of the joining tool is crucial for the assembly process step to deliver the highest quality standards. MONO 3D performs pick-and-place of battery covers precisely and enables fast and reliable robot guidance which is the key driver for high-volume production. Fast image processing algorithms during computing increase the speed and accuracy of the tightening process. The MONOxD Software calculates the 3D coordinate transformation and sends the offset to the robot controller to optimize the tool path.

Bead Inspection

RTVision.3d battery manufacturing

To meet the high safety and performance requirements of battery manufacturing, the thermal compound material must be applied continuously, in the right position, width, and height. Only balanced and sufficient material distribution for optimal conductivity and heat dissipation avoids battery defects. RTVision.3d is the ideal solution for inspecting bead quality as it can measure not only the width, position, and continuity of the bead application, but also its height.

Fire Protection

Battery modules

In the event of a battery cell fire, it is essential that passengers have sufficient time to exit the vehicle safely. A 2-component fire protection material can be applied to delay the spread of flames. However, the effective application of this material requires a seamless and highly accurate flat stream application. 

Quiss bead inspection solutions control the precise material application to ensure it is correct.

Foreign Part Detection

Automated tightening with position control

After dispensing the compound thermal material, the module needs to be mounted and tightened to the battery tray. 

To avoid serious production quality issues and achieve short cycle times, the PowerPICK3D sensor ensures foreign part free assembly situation with its ultra-fast quality inspection and result provision. After acquiring the point cloud, the embedded processing unit compares the point cloud generated in production environment and calculates deviations from the CAD-file based on tolerances defined.

Presence / Absence

VIVA Total Statistics OnlineGUI

Presence or absence detection is a crucial process step in the battery assembly process since it ensures the quality and completeness of the finished product. 

Automated visual inspection systems ensure that a specific feature or component is present in the product being made and that no defective or incorrect components arrive at the next manufacturing stage or the end customer.

Stationary or mobile cameras inspect assemblies and components for specified properties, including completeness, presence, and correct position. Defective components can be removed or reworked immediately. This ensures that production meets the quality requirements of the downstream processes to 100%.
