DEVELOPMENTS AROUND ELECTRIC POWER-TRAINS
As the leading international supplier of painting and production facilities for the automobile industry, Dürr has dedicated its activities to the development of production technologies in the area of e-mobility. Based on its competencies and expertise in assembly technology and automation, Dürr has made the development of production facilities for vehicle batteries and related products their key concern: Dürr develops new concepts for installing batteries into vehicles but also for assembling batteries as such. In the course of this, Dürr has participated actively in various development projects under the Baden-Wuerttemberg leading-edge cluster. The ProBat (PROjection of quality-oriented, series-flexible BATtery production systems) project was launched to study concepts and instruments for planning and controlling quality-oriented battery system production. For this, methodical plant layouts and quality assurance systems are examined and assessed with regard to their safety and cost-efficiency and then bundled in a software-based planning tool. This tool is used to describe production systems, scalable from small series to mass production. Dürr, as the project manager, carries out this project together with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and renowned partners from industry.
