Custom Metrology Automation for EV Battery Manufacturing


A solid-state EV battery manufacturer needed to automatically test individual parts and trays of parts at high speeds. A primary metrology method was specified with the requirement that other metrology platforms might be used in the future.


Creating a custom, high throughput, manufacturing-ready machine requiring minimal dry room space with flexibility to accommodate undefined metrology units.


A flexible robotic architecture was developed by Owens Design to maximize test throughput by either using two differing metrology systems or two identical systems in a parallel configuration. The system included a custom tray handling solution designed for extendibility across the factory with quick tray exchanges while queueing a number of stacks to minimize operator intervention.
