BATTERY PLANT TECHNOLOGIES
As an established engineering partner for the automotive and aerospace industry, Thyssen-Krupp System Engineering became involved with battery technology in 2010. In the new business area "Battery Plant Technologies", founded in Hohenstein-Ernstthal in Saxony, automatic assembly equipment is being developed and built for both the manufacturing of Li-Ion cells and the assembling of modules and battery packs. Also, system solutions for the quality assurance and performance testing of these products are be-ing offered. Significant orders have already been placed both nationally and internationally. Thyssen Krupp System Engineering is thus a turnkey system supplier covering all areas of the manufacturing process of Li-Ion batteries. Production technologies for lithium-ion batteries are among the central research and development areas at ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions. A technical centre has therefore been founded in Pleissa near Chemnitz to examine these assembly and manufacturing steps.ThyssenKrupp System Engineering is an internationally acting affi liate of ThyssenKrupp AG, a system partner for all important components of the car body and power-train process chains in the automotive industry. The new business portfolios include automation solutions for electrical storage and drive systems, solutions for innovative lightweight designs, as well as plants and test systems for the aviation industry. Thyssen-Krupp System Engineering is a strong and reliable partner to its customers, optimising their value-added chain and strengthening their efficiency.
