Schneider Electric and AVEVA announced a partnership with IN-CORE Systèmes to help drive greater efficiency in Electric Vehicle battery production.

Electric Vehicle Battery Production

This joint offering will connect electrode level to final cell performance and provide customers with a more complete data picture to help improve processes.

As the Electric Vehicle (EV) market projects substantial long-term growth, battery production is under greater pressure to improve quality, efficiency, and business outcomes. This increased production can lead to new issues, including failure modes and process variation, which in turn can create operational, material and labor losses.

In recent years, EV battery production has seen up to 20 percent of materials scrapped, and an inefficient use of energy with up to 47 kWh of energy needed to produce 1 kWh of an EV battery cell. These challenges can only be mitigated by greater operational insight.

The partnership between Schneider Electric, AVEVA, and IN-CORE will bring greater data connectivity to the production process by addressing data traceability at the electrode level. The IN-CORE Traceability Solution will work with AVEVA System Platform to connect critical parameters to electrode manufacture, final cell, and pack performance, providing relevant data at the most optimal time and format to help ensure a complete data picture. This provides customers with positive outcomes such as:

  • Faster troubleshooting of field issues

  • Waste Reduction

  • Production Optimization

  • Materials Optimization
