Hannes Weinmann is an expert for manufacturing processes and industrial machinery for the production of lithium-ion batteries. He is currently working as a technical consultant for the rhc+ consulting GmbH, providing technical cross-process expertise, technical project management and strategic product portfolio development for mid-end technologies (assembly) in battery production.
Mr. Weinmann has been working in the field of machine, equipment and process automation for lithium-ion cell manufacturing since 2016. As a researcher and project manager at the Institute of Production Science at KIT he was responsible for numerous public and industrial projects and, among others, involved in the analysis of technical processes and the evaluation of new production technologies for battery production. He has dealt with global supplier search, selection and qualification for battery cell production and therefore has a wide network of national and international contacts.
In his previous job engagement, he also worked on the optimization of existing and the development of new manufacturing processes for cell assembly to increase the flexibility and efficiency in the process. Accompanying this he has furthermore been involved in the development of tools for production line planning, tolerance modelling and cost accounting for battery production.
Now he uses his expertise to accelerate and facilitate the transformation of companies from conventional technologies to the electromobility environment and to help customers overcome emerging challenges.
