B&R Automation

World renowned automation specialist B&R helps battery producers make leaps in efficiency and production density with an ecosystem of machine automation components tightly synchronized around a mechatronic track system. The most dramatic improvements are achieved by carrying out production steps in continuous high-speed motion. This applies in particular to electrode and cell production, but module assembly and upcoming cell-to-pack concepts also benefit. Together with AGVs and robotics from parent company ABB, the areas of intralogistics and assembly of larger parts are also covered.
