The equipment consists of:

  • Laser cutting and welding machine
  • Rapid prototyping 3d printer for plastics and metal
  • Vacuum casting machine
  • Test benches for the mechanical and electro-thermal validation of battery prototypes
  • Closed development compartments for confidential customer projects

With the aid of this and further equipment innovative battery systems can be developed starting with concepts and the connection of cells, the construction and testing of cooling systems to the mechanical integration of cells into modules and packs.
