Discover our automation and digitalization portfolio, which allows you to tap the full potential of your battery production.
At the Battery Show Europe, we will show you at booth 632 actual examples from intriguing use cases, beginning with battery design and production planning through to the manufacture of battery cells and battery modules/packs, all the way to the charging of batteries for electric cars.
Reducing the use of expensive and rare raw materials in battery cell production
To reduce the use of valuable and expensive materials such as cobalt, nickel, manganese, and lithium, the optimal recipe must already have been identified before the battery cell is produced. Simcenter Star CCM+ software calculates the optimal mixing ratio and validates the electrochemical composition. The cell itself is also designed ahead of time in Simcenter Star CCM+ to identify the ideal cell format.
Faster startup of battery mass production
To meet growing demand, Siemens enables fast commissioning of production facilities. Plant Simulation supports virtual planning of the following characteristics: energy flow and consumption analyses, material flow, logistics and business processes of battery production, “what if” scenarios, optimization and bottleneck analyses.
Increased plant transparency and stable production processes
For a smooth production process, individual production sections must be linked with one another and optimally synchronized. Machine statuses can be uniformly defined and machine data identified in real time via the standardized OPC UA interface. The production data is archived and analyzed in the SCADA system (WinCC), thus ensuring process transparency.
Optimal machine performance and production quality
During the winding process, machine data is collected by SIMATIC Edge and compared to a digital winder model. This allows the machine to be continuously optimized and the maximum speed to be determined, depending on the maximum quantity and minimum waste.
Faster and simpler robot integration
The robot program is integrated into SIMATIC S7-1500 using the free robotics solution in the TIA Portal. Robot systems from different manufacturers can thus be quickly and easily integrated into the complete automation system of the plant or machine.
Faster development of battery production machines
Automation engineering can be performed in parallel to the mechanical development of the machine using the TIA Portal and SIMOTION Scout. The physical and kinematic model of a machine is mapped in NX MCD. The converting toolbox can be used in the control program at no charge and provides adaptable function blocks such as prismatic winding.
More efficient Battery Module & Pack production
With the long-time expertise and experience on comprehensive automation standard in Automotive industry, we also offer the innovative technologies and standardized platform based on TIA Portal for the battery module and pack production to enable higher flexibility, efficiency and quality.
Multi-Carrier System for maximum flexibility in module/pack production
The innovative Multi-Carrier System transport solution creates maximum flexibility in the machine. The breakup of the rigid chaining of conventional transport routes creates a new degree of freedom and offers maximum dynamics.
eCharging with SIMATIC – optimum charging infrastructure
Implement standardized, effective AC & DC charging systems for electromobility based on SIMATIC portfolio strengths.
Intelligent technology modules, free scalability, open interfaces, and minimal space requirements ensure easy integration into existing infrastructures and maximum scalability.
