Automation company Comau has said it will develop an energy-efficient cell formation chamber for e-Mobility technology in line with a European sustainability initiative.
The project comes as part of the firm’s work with Gigabat, a pan-European initiative aimed at supporting the sustainable and ecological transition towards e-Mobility.
Gigabat seeks to consolidate a large-scale European battery cell manufacturing value chain, with Comau and the other consortium members.
Comau expects its battery cell formation technology to deliver electric and thermal energy savings of up to 20% compared to similar solutions available on the market. This, the firm says, is thanks to the recovery and reuse of excess heat and electricity produced during the multi-day cell activation procedure.
Comau specialises in electric vehicle body-in-white, transmissions and e-drive assembly systems, battery manufacturing, and industrialisation strategies for next-generation technologies.
By developing new technologies for the manufacturing of cells and advanced solutions for end-of-life battery management, Comau says, it is increasingly able to provide a 360° cradle-to-grave e-Mobility strategy.
