Battery Equipment

Canning Machine

  • Designed for 18650 and JR123 cells, other sizes possible.
  • Integrates easily with existing conveyors.
  • Places top and bottom insulators in one machine (most are separate machines).
  • 2 cameras detect insulator quality and placement.
  • Cam driven for most actuations; high reliability and consistent timing.
  • 30-60 ppm depending on cell configuration.

Cap Welding Machine

  • Designed for 18650 and JR123 cells, other sizes possible.
  • Integrates easily with existing conveyors.
  • Caps are ultrasonically welded to cathode tab.
  • Weld controller monitors process variables.
  • Vision system detects weld quality and cap placement.
  • Cam driven for most actuations, high reliability and consistent timing.
  • 30-60 ppm depending on cell configuration.
