With the rapid expansion of production capacity in the lithium battery industry, the production line has put forward higher requirements for logistics regarding handling volume, timeliness and real-time data. There are many existing problems with traditional manual handling, such as, insecurity, low utilization rate and data black box.
In the process of lithium battery production, Youibot integrated solution, which combines mobile robots and software, will complete the data of the whole plant, effectively solve the problems of low stability and data black box caused by manual handling, and realize stable, continuous and efficient lithium battery production.
• The pre-process coil material weighs up to 1000kg, involving various types of positive electrode materials, negative electrode materials, diaphragms, electrolytes, etc. It is difficult for manual hauling and labor-intensive manual handling.
•Under production anxiety, the factory produces 7*24H, and the workers work in two shifts, and the working time is as long as 12H. The material of the board is large, and the loading and unloading docking needs to be completed by multiple workers, which finally leads to difficult labor recruitment.
•The battery cell process has high requirements in the production environment. Factors such as dust, temperature, and humidity will affect the consistency of the product. Most of the production is dust-free and dry workshops. The entry and exit of personnel can easily cause pollution, and the multi-step circulation and manual contact affect the quality control.
• The lamination and winding process has high alignment accuracy, and the toner on the ground is easy to slip, and the inaccurate manual operation leads to high scrap; the manual operation is uncontrollable, the consistency is low, and the manual handling of wrong materials leads to waste of raw materials.
• There are many cached materials between each process, no real-time inventory data synchronization ERP, and slow information synchronization in manual inventory.
• The locations of line-side cache racks are scattered, lack of flexible scheduling, and the order response time of the entire workshop is not high. The lag of informatization leads to low material flow and high material inventory occupancy rate, which affects production.
