Battery Production for E-Mobility
From battery cells to electric cars
Climate change, society's growing environmental awareness and legal requirements are driving the e-mobility forward faster than ever. At the heart of this technology is the battery. It is decisive for costs, performance and range, and therefore, it plays a key role in determining how competitive a vehicle is. With a value-added share in the electric car of around 40%, the expectations on all those involved in the value chain are correspondingly high. The race for the best technology in production is in full swing.
The production of a vehicle battery brings with it a whole new set of challenges. Cell production requires clean conditions and compliance to regulations for hazardous goods as well as special emergency concepts that must be developed for storing and transporting batteries. Production must meet climate goals and the growing customer demand for green production. Whether it's planning a battery manufacturing factory, setting up the supply chain or reducing your carbon footprint – UNITY supports you as a strategic partner and planner of your battery manufacturing factory at every stage of the value chain. As a trusted partner, we provide you with a holistic and process-oriented approach. With the help of our project management methods, we integrate the right experts at the right time to make you successful.
Future-oriented factory planning is the cornerstone for efficient processes, high productivity and sustainable corporate success. Together with you, we design the ideal battery production factory of tomorrow - from the initial idea to successful commissioning. In doing so, we work hand in hand with technology suppliers, general planners, authorities and other experts to meet the special requirements of battery production. In this way, we design battery production in a holistic and future-oriented way.
- Legal requirements for handling HV batteries
- Integrative planning of all measures from construction, technology, organizational and process planning
- A connected factory: Availability of data and systems at any time
- A flexible and productive factory: Respond to market changes and reduce manufacturing costs
Internal material flows are the central nervous system of production. If the goods that need to be transported and stored are HV batteries, the demands on intralogistics increase significantly, as the handling of batteries must comply with national and international specifications and standards. This includes, for example, a comprehensive emergency concept across all production stages. Design a perfectly coordinated and lean intralogistics system that meet the high demands of battery production together with UNITY.
- National and international standards and regulations
- Comprehensive processes and concepts (emergency concept, etc.)
- Cost efficiency in the process flow
- Compliance with legal requirements
- Stable and lean supply of production
With regard to battery production, the supply chain presents a particular challenge. Cell producers and their suppliers of components and raw materials are currently primarily located in China. There are high international requirements for the transportation of dangerous goods. However, Europe will catch up quickly in cell production in the coming years, and thereby open up new opportunities. Design a holistic and efficient supply chain strategy for your future battery production facility with UNITY.
- Transport requirements for dangerous goods
- Currently primarily Chinese battery cell suppliers
- Fast growing supplier networks
- Reduction of logistics costs
- Increased transparency along the supply chain
- Security of supply and compliance with international standards
