The crucial role of conveying equipment in the battery production process.

New energy batteries are the core components of new energy vehicles. Their performance, safety, durability, and other aspects directly affect the market competitiveness and user experience of automobiles. Currently, lithium-ion batteries are mainly used domestically and internationally as power batteries. Their production process is complex and requires high environmental requirements, necessitating the coordination of multiple devices to complete.

The production process of lithium-ion batteries can be divided into three stages: pre-middle-post. The pre-stage mainly involves electrode production, including mixing, coating, calendering, and slitting; the middle stage mainly involves cell assembly, including stacking, welding, injection, and sealing; the post-stage mainly involves cell activation testing and battery packaging.

In terms of raw material transportation and storage, due to the sensitivity of lithium-ion battery materials to humidity and temperature, processing needs to be carried out in a dust-free and sterile workshop. Therefore, it is necessary to use sealed and anti-static conveying equipment to transport materials from the warehouse to the production line and maintain constant temperature and humidity. Regarding the production of electrode sheets, since the width of the electrode sheet is generally 500 millimeters and the length is 4000 meters, high-speed and stable conveying equipment is required to transport the electrode sheets from the coating machine to the cold press for pre-slitting.

Due to the need for precise control of the position and quantity of the electrode sheets during the stacking process, as well as their welding with the current collector, high-precision and high-efficiency conveying equipment is required to transport the electrode sheets from the slitting machine to the stacking machine, enabling automated stacking and welding.


Due to the injection process requiring the uniform injection of an effective liquid medium into the electrode sheets and subsequent cycling and performance testing after sealing, conveying equipment with temperature and pressure control is needed to transport the complete lithium-ion battery units to the injection and testing equipment. Throughout this entire production process, the stability, speed, accuracy, and level of automation of the conveying equipment directly influence the quality and efficiency of the batteries.

In recent years, with the continuous expansion of the new energy vehicle market, there has been an increasing demand for power batteries, prompting battery manufacturing companies to enhance production capacity and reduce costs. Consequently, conveying equipment also faces continuous innovation and improvement.

Motorized roller conveyors, with their energy-saving, safety, flexibility, and intelligent features, can achieve zone control, variable frequency speed regulation, adaptive load capabilities, and are suitable for various complex conveying scenarios. Compared to traditional conveying equipment, motorized roller conveyors can significantly reduce energy consumption while enhancing operational efficiency and reliability.


Achieving intelligence and networking.

By incorporating components such as sensors, controllers, and communication modules, real-time monitoring, fault diagnosis, and remote control functions of conveying equipment can be realized, thereby improving the reliability and efficiency of the conveying system.


Enhancing conveying performance and adaptability.

Through optimization of design, material selection, surface treatment, etc., the wear resistance, corrosion resistance, dustproof, and waterproof properties of conveying equipment can be improved to meet the operational requirements under different environmental conditions.


Expanding application fields and functions.

Tailored to the characteristics of different industries and products, motorized roller conveyors can meet the conveying needs of items with various shapes, weights, temperatures, etc., and incorporate additional functions such as sorting, stacking, and packaging.


Characteristics of motorized roller conveyors.
