Batteries and other electrical energy storage systems play a key role in the electromobility sector. They determine the reliability, power and price of a system to a large degree. For e-mobility to truly be successful, massive advances are required in the production of high-performance batteries.
The challenge: New automation technologies for minimising production costs must be carried over to large-scale series production – only then can cost efficiency be guaranteed. mk supports this process with powerful, precise and reliable solutions, ranging from extremely fast production of cells, to generation of modules in a controlled environment, all the way to integration of extremely heavy components into electrical vehicles. Typically mk: All production lines are perfectly interlinked.
Whether it’s mixing, coating, drying, separating, gripping or extracting vapours in the cell production area, or precisely positioning, insulating, packaging and loading the individual cells in the module generation area, mk’s modular systems provide outstanding precision without electrostatic discharge, even with high cycle times. They also safely integrate the finished batteries – with weights up to 300 kg/m and voltages up to 400 V – into the vehicle under the required environmental conditions.
From precise handling of lightweight products to transport of extremely heavy loads, mk ensures that different production lines are always compatible to allow for fully automated process interlinking. Our subsidiary mkf handles the assembly automation and testing technology tasks, as well as any cleanroom production steps.
