Automated battery assembly using the latest smart manufacturing techniques.
EV battery production needs to scale to keep up with the market demand for electric and hybrid vehicles. Fortunately, automation capabilities in the past few years have risen to meet this challenge, offering new techniques to both assemble and test EV batteries.
These capabilities include high-speed robotics with 6-axes of mobility that can lift, orient, and place components, adhesive dispensing technology that is accurate to the nanometer, and ultrasonic wire bonding capabilities that can fuse materials at the atomic level.
Automated testing on stand-alone machines or in-process.
Quality and consistency is essential to EV battery production, which is why we incorporate product testing directly into our assembly processes. These verification steps can also be handled independently as stand-along procedures, either for spot-testing or to add new verification methods to an already existing assembly process.
Our visioning technology means we can also conduct scan inspections without adding another step to the process, and our barcode systems mean you can track units as they progress through your system and identify them for product tracing purposes.
“I want to thank the Eagle team for a job well done under extreme (COVID-19) circumstances. It is a pleasure to work with people who take real ownership for their work and I hope I have an opportunity to work with them in the future.”

Full integration of robotics and automated assembly technologies.
Many industries have already partly automated, relying on traditional fixed-in-place assemblies for high volume manufacturing applications, and turning to human operators for tasks that have historically been resistant to automation. But with advanced robotics shifting the parameters on what is or isn’t possible to automate, it’s time factories rethought their assemblies.
Fortunately, robots can be incorporated within a more traditional assembly, either with the assembly that already exists, or when used alongside other high-volume manufacturing methods. At Eagle, we use automation simulations to understand how each assembly component interacts with each other, so that the assembly we design uses the most effective technology for each task.
Vision-guided technology for inspection and quality control.
The greater mobility and agility of robotic solutions combined with advanced vision technology means they can perform tasks previously unfeasible for traditional automation—such as inspecting crops for ripeness, or working alongside human operators on large aerospace assemblies. Vision inspection systems also reduce the human error that is inevitable when a worker grows weary or loses focus.
We at Eagle place a high priority on the excellence of our product, and focus on quality applies to the assemblies we design for our customers as well. We can help you use visioning technology to gather data about your quality control processes so that you can identify problems early and nip any production issues in the bud before they cause trouble downstream.
