Telsonic’s SONIQTWIST® Energises Automotive Battery Cell Production
There is no question that Electrically Powered Vehicles (EV’s), and Hybrids will continue to play an increasingly important role in the future of both personal and commercial transportation. For the individual consumer, our experience of the Electromobility sector is generally limited to the purchase of a particular car, based upon the criteria which are important to us personally, such as price, range, specification, and colour.
Behind the scenes, however, there is a complex series of multiple manufacturing processes which eventually come together to produce the finished vehicle. In the case of EV’s, the manufacture of the individual battery cells, which ultimately provide the motive power for the vehicle, is a key part of the overall manufacturing process. As the EV sector has evolved, so too has the battery cell format and technology. Some battery packs are made up of “Pouch Cells” or “Prismatic” Cells, however, the industry is increasingly turning towards the use of “Cylindrical” Lithium-Ion battery cells
as these are much easier and cheaper to produce in the volumes required. Depending upon vehicle model and manufacturer, on average, an EV may have anything between 1,000 and 9,000 individual battery cells installed within its battery packs.
