Lithium Ion Battery Inspection

The effects of failure are becoming more severe as Lithium-Ion battery capacity and usage increase. Modern quality control requirements call for a thorough inspection that can be performed using an X-ray.

A trustworthy examination is more crucial than ever in a world where electrical-powered technologies, such as electric cars, are used more and more frequently. Critical flaws, such as frayed cables and improper assembly, must be spotted visually by an operator or by the system using automated defect recognition (ADR). The quality control checklist should include items like internal welds, insulation layers, fuses, and the completeness of the component set.

Using fully automatic ADR systems like the XRHRobotStar is the only practical solution to install an in-line inspection in cases of high-volume production. Innovative VisiConsult CT solutions could be used in R&D labs for the creation of new goods. Engineers can examine the XRH111 layer by layer and conduct tests in a non-destructive (NDT) manner to verify after a specific amount of repeated charges.

All of our products have been tested in the field and are built with a durable industrial design to withstand the harsh circumstances found in actual production settings. Comparing the digital method to the antiquated film technology will result in significant time savings.

  • Detection of cables, assemblies, welds, fuses, and insulation layers.
  • Inner structures are measured geometrically, and their completeness is verified.
  • Advanced computed tomography 3D analyses (CT).
  • Use the effective Xplus picture enhancement tools to draw attention to flaws.
  • For high-volume production, automated defect recognition (ADR) is used.

Inspection and NDT solutions for the battery industry

Among the most potent energy storage technologies, Li-Ion batteries are frequently found in electric vehicles, stationary power sources, and portable electronic devices.

At every stage of a battery’s lifecycle, our extensive selection of high-end CT and X-ray inspection systems enables quality control and failure analysis. From research and development through the post-mortem examination of faulty Li-Ion batteries to determine the root of failure. Fast CT inspection offers reliable inspection of all crucial components along with safe and secure at-line and in-line production management.

Technologies made for your industry challenges

Battery Cells

It is now much simpler than ever to find anomalies in battery parts, battery cells, and ESS & EV modules. Battery makers and consumers can inspect known causes of faults as well as obtain insights into new areas of potential concern or product design improvement with the help of automated defect recognition for lithium-ion batteries.

Battery Modules

For pouch and prismatic cells, this includes traditional anode/cathode overhang inspection as well as more recent spot checks for things like foreign body materials, gas bubbles, welding errors with the electrodes, electrode cracks, and electrolyte filling. Additionally, as ESS & EV modules grow in size, it is more crucial than ever to verify entire modules for resin filling, connections, cell alignment, and dimensional accuracy.

Battery Packs

Productivity cost control and risk reduction are all intimately associated with battery quality. Anode overhang analysis, discovering probable failure modes before end-use, and assembly quality control at various stages are crucial in the manufacture of batteries in order to correctly manage higher-order risks while also considerably lowering scrap rates and associated manufacturing costs.

Data Management & Analytics

We aim to assist you in making the most of your time while it is your most valuable resource. With the help of our InspectionWorks Software Platform, you can turn inspections from a required expense into a vital data stream that will improve product design and optimization.

Production Line

Fortunately, recent developments are pushing the boundaries of what is feasible by using 3D industrial CT technology for battery quality inspections. CT X-ray technology, used in-line or at-line in battery production, enables the simultaneous assessment of many failure situations while providing thorough quality inspections throughout all manufacturing phases. Our CT systems also deliver the high resolution at fast inspection speeds needed by batteries.
