From a technological pint of view, Comau has consolidated and proven expertise in the assembly of electric motors, modules and battery packs with whatever cell typology, besides being able to satisfy the last phases of cell machining. Comau designs technologies for the formation of high energy-efficiency cells also in the ambit of Gigabat a project in the electric mobility field that aims at strengthening the European Union’s manufacturing chain for the large-scale cell production.
Aiming at a saving of electric and thermal energy up to 20%, the solution by Comau recovers and reuses the electricity in excess produced during the long and intense procedure of cell activation that lasts for several days. The innovative design of the cell formation chamber enhances the company’s commitment to the industrialization of sustainable and efficient electric mobility solutions. Comau will also exploit enabling proprietary algorithms and digital technologies to further optimize a long and highly complex process.
Innovative systems of energy distribution and a high energy-efficiency power electronics will be at stake to avoid energy losses, meanwhile decreasing the overall energy demand. Besides, Comau will use its proprietary algorithms and digital platforms to further optimize the long and complex cell formation process.
“Europe is operating to implement a more and more autonomous manufacturing cell of batteries and high energy-efficiency cells represent a fundamental stage to hit this target. The electric mobility already constitutes an important and steeply rising part of Comau business. Initiatives like these, which go hand in hand with our strategy of technological development and our constant commitment to enable and to optimize a sustainable automation, will allow us to increasingly cover all the phases of the electrification life cycle, reaching a saving of electric and thermal energy up to 20%”, stated Pietro Gorlier, CEO of Comau.
