Weld Seam Inspection in Battery Production

Safe Production

Because Every Weld Seam Needs to Hold

  • 100% automatic seam inspection

Batteries are the new engines.

Weld seam inspection ensures that only Lithium-ion batteries with defect-free contacts and cleanly welded battery modules and housings are delivered to your customers. 

Quality Control

Every Cell Contact is Inspected

Defect-free contacts are essential for powerful, long-life Lithium-ion batteries. Even the slightest deviation can reduce their performance and durability. Weld seam inspection automatically inspects every weld seam on every contact and identifies the slightest irregularities. As a result, only batteries with flawless contacts and high performance data reach the market.

  • 0% slippage
  • 100% automatic seam tracking

Every Weld Seam Matters

Weld seams are an important element in ensuring passenger safety. As a result, rigorous requirements must be met in battery production. In cell housings, the weld seams must guarantee a hermetic seal over the entire life of the battery. Battery boxes, by contrast, are often integrated into the bodywork as a structural element. They must be stable and able to withstand a crash.

Data Analysis

Economically-Efficient Production

The VIRO WSI inspection system automatically documents all inspection results and stores them in an integrated database. From this data, you can immediately determine any action that may be required. In addition, the aggregation of this data serves as a valuable basis for long-term analyses. Your ever-growing database enables you to initiate effective process optimizations and implement these on an ongoing basis.

Defect-Free Production

Putting Sustainability into Action

Each and every process optimization is a step towards greater sustainability.

That’s because this optimization helps you avoid errors, reduce waste, and save scarce raw materials. VITRONIC pursues a holistic approach in this regard –continuous quality inspection delivers high-quality weld seams and protects valuable resources. In other words, by improving your welding process, you also create sustainable quality.
