When it comes to meeting the high requirements for speed and efficiency in battery cell production, high-performance automation solutions are indispensable. Our control technology enables end-to-end automation of all processes in battery production: from electrode production to module and pack assembly. PC-based control offers advantages for all machine types, no matter whether they produce round, pouch, or prismatic battery cells.
Our highlights for battery production:
The production of electric motors requires highly precise and fast processes, particularly when it comes to manufacturing stators. This represents yet another area in which our customers can enjoy the outstanding performance of a PC-based control system: in hairpin production lines, for example, TwinCAT serves as the central platform to facilitate the control of all axes and motion sequences. What’s more, the optimal synchronization of all functions allows for maximum output generation.
Our highlights for electric motor production:
Our scalable control technology is suitable for automating all types of presses, including hydraulic deep drawing presses and servo-electric transfer presses. When it comes to highly dynamic processes in press systems, Beckhoff Industrial PCs shine with their powerful performance. The low cycle times facilitate certain process parameters that serve to increase the output speed further and further. The control itself does not become a limiting component.
Our highlights for the control of presses in body construction:
With PC-based control and EtherCAT, we offer high-performance control solutions for assembly units, handling systems, test equipment, and robot applications. All production steps, such as feeding, joining, welding, gluing, and assembly, can be implemented consistently with TwinCAT automation software. What’s more, production cells or production lines can be adapted to changing requirements with little engineering effort.
Our highlights for handling and assembly:
As a high-performance control platform for the entire production process, PC-based control ensures efficient production flows in the field of tire manufacturing. Through many years of cooperation with machine builders and end customers, we have built up extensive experience not only in the tire industry, but also in the field of control cabinet construction. What’s more, the modularity and scalability of our control components facilitate the creation of customized and economical solutions.
Our highlights for tire production:
As development times for everything from the smallest components through to large gear units become ever shorter, customer requirements for test benches to ensure product quality are on the rise. Modern test benches have to be capable of adapting to rapidly changing conditions, which is where a modular concept offers the ideal solution. With our flexible modular system, we offer the optimal foundation for test bench projects in the automotive industry.
