Conveyor Washer for Battery Cell Cleaning
This manufacturer produces Lithium batteries and battery systems for the aviation, medical, telecom, transportation, energy, and utility industries, as well as commercial users. The production rate of these batteries is very high. As such, they needed an automated system to handle their battery cell cleaning process.
The company produces batteries that vary in size and cleans them during three work shifts, seven days a week. Specifically, they needed a system that would be able to adapt to clean the different sizes (roughly the size of AA, C, and D cell batteries) and also be able to handle the workload.
The solution was a custom conveyor washer explicitly designed for battery cell cleaning. First, workers place the battery cells in pucks according to size. Next, the washer receives the pucks from a Flex Link conveyor and routes them as required. The puck design is identical for all three cell sizes and presents the top surface of the cells at the same height. Then, cells pass through a 3-chamber wash station capable of rinsing the top and bottom of the cells with pressurized nozzles located on top and bottom of the cells.
