What is the best way to ensure the quality of welded seams on batteries?
Technology for accurate inspection of weld quality plays an important role in this. But quality inspection alone does not improve the quality of battery products. The defects themselves must be minimized by optimizing the manufacturing processes. That's why process monitoring is a good complement to quality inspection.
What is the difference between process monitoring and quality inspection?
Process monitoring starts with the causes, i.e. the manufacturing processes, while quality inspection focuses on the results, i.e. the finished welds. In battery manufacturing, every single weld is critical for safety and performance reasons. Although a good quality inspection solution can prevent defective welded products from being put into circulation, there is no 100% guarantee. Therefore, an additional solution is required, and that is process monitoring.
Why do you need a special solution for process monitoring?
In batteries, materials such as aluminum and copper are laser welded. Due to the technical characteristics, it is very difficult to find defective welds. Visual inspection solutions cannot provide absolute safety.
In addition, laser welding takes place automatically in a closed room. Without process monitoring, no one knows what is happening during welding. Once the process monitoring device is installed, you can see exactly what is going on.
