Remanufacturing of battery modules with many variants with automated assembly and testing processes
The aim of the overall project is to increase the usage rate for second-use batteries in Germany through economical, automated and flexible remanufacturing. This applies to the processes of dismantling the components of a battery pack down to the cell level, preparing them and reassembling them for different applications or reusing them individually. IBG develops functional, flexible disassembly and reassembly systems within the overall project. This increases productivity and process quality and reduces the costs for the individual assembly processes. Within the plant engineering, IBG mainly develops and builds the gripper technologies, especially for the limp parts, the vision technology as well as the automation steps for the planned assembly processes using simulation technology.
