Digital innovation and simulation: Battery modelling solutions
Studying and designing batteries is a multi-scale and multi-physics problem. Our software provides simulation capability on a wide range of length scale, addressing several physics ranging from electrochemical, electrical, thermal and fluid problems. Users can design, simulate performance, and analyze the product integration while accelerating time to market and reducing product development costs.
The art of perfection: Acurrate, flexible stacking process
The Institute for Production Technology at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology joined forces with Siemens to develop a process which reduces the time required for stack formation during battery production, thus facilitating a higher throughput. Unwinding and destacking were merged in a single process step to allow flexible single-sheet stack formation. A customized automation concept combines available standard solutions with an optimized process-oriented solution to suit each individual customer.
A building block for sustainability: Battery recycling automation concepts
Battery recycling processes can be optimized and become safer by using our automation and digitalization portfolio. Innovative technological approaches are instrumental when developing new processes for increasing throughput and maximizing the recovery of raw materials. For operations involving the disassembly of battery packs in particular, we investigate and validate concepts in collaboration with the machine manufacturers to ensure that we can continue to meet ever increasing requirements, and moreover to organize the recycling process so that it is more sustainable and more cost-effective.
