"Cell-To-Pack: Key processes for high speed automated assembly"
The assembly of battery cells into modules and pack includes a large number of processes, both in the fields of assembly and in materials processing. Some of the processes are of particular interest, as they create challenges to thea utomation solutions, and are at the same time key to mastering the production of optimal modules and pack designs. We look into some of the most critical processes, where Anwha have made also practical experience: cell-to-tray stacking, without intermediate formation of modules, application of adhesive solutions such as adhesive tape, pads, and dispensing of adhesive paste, and laser welding of bus-bars.
