Zero-defect wELDing for e-mobility

The ZELD-e project aims to reconfigure and update the existing monitoring and control schema of the welding processes involved in tab-to-tab and tab-to-busbar joining of battery modules and packs used in BEVs, in order to increase the joint quality, reduce and even eliminate defective parts, optimize equipment’s productivity, energy consumption and minimize development time and time-to-market.

The proposed solution/system is based upon a multilevel approach, including the enhancement of the sensorial configurations, the data acquisition (DAQ), and control functionalities located at the edge (shop floor), backed up by a centralized web-based platform with visualization, quality assessment and data processing/analysis capabilities paired with a long-term control optimization schema for supporting the decisions of the operators.
