• Battery Laser Cleaning Machine

Battery Laser Cleaning Machine 

The Battery Cleaning Machine is a complete solution for battery-module-related applications running on conveyors. You can use it to clean, texture and mark battery components in a single operation. Vision cameras can also be included to control quality.

The machine is highly customizable to accommodate for various requirements, such as manual, robot, or conveyor part loading, or large modules with several areas to process. Certified Class-1, it includes everything you need to ensure safety. 

Benefits of the Battery Cleaning Machine 

Flexible Integration   

Our adaptable door system allows loading parts manually, with a robot, or via conveyor. You can even start with a manually loaded machine during ramp up, then automate the machine later with minimal upgrade. Our team will customize the machine for an easy integration and optimal production. 

Clean, Mark, Validate

Laserax is the only one that offers a solution to perform multiple operations at the same time. You can clean and texture surfaces, etch barcodes, and use our integrated vision cameras to control quality—all of this with a single unit.  

Fast and Precise Cleaning  

Our laser is preprogrammed to only clean battery pole areas needed for welding, minimizing the total cleaning time. Our vision system also detects module positioning errors and adjusts laser cleaning accordingly.   

Adapted to Your Custom Requirements

Laserax is an agile company and so is our machine design, which can be adapted to meet specific requirements such as footprint limitations and different part sizes. A gantry option is also available to move the laser head as needed when processing large modules.  

Optical Configuration that Prevents Overheating 

Most fiber lasers use galvanometers that do not provide feedback on their position. These mirrors, which are used to guide laser light, are not safe when their position is not known, as they can overheat the battery in the event of a malfunction and cause serious accidents. 

Laserax uses galvanometers specifically chosen for electric batteries to prevent overheating. Our unique configuration allows for the system to monitor all optics positioning in the head and shut down the laser source if the optical components become misaligned. 

Leading-Edge Expertise 

The electrification of the automotive industry comes with new technical challenges and requirements. Laserax takes head on untamed challenges to set new automotive standards. 

Our team of experts optimize the laser parameters and machine configuration for your application. You get a customized laser process of optimal quality and efficiency based on your cleaning and texturing needs.  

Class-1 Laser Safety Rating 

Safety is never an option. As a turnkey Class-1 solution, this machine complies with international laser safety standards as well as dust and fume extraction requirements. It helps you create a 100% safe work environment without requiring personal protective equipment.

Laser Machine Options 

Laser Power

The machine is powered by a fiber laser whose power can range from 20W to 500W. A higher power increases the surface treatment speed, allowing you to meet more challenging cycle times or reduce your operator’s waiting time. 

We also offer two types of laser heads. 2D heads are typically used for surface treatments on flat surfaces while 3D heads can be used to treat any types of surface geometries, including curved ones, or to treat surfaces at different heights without moving the head. 

Gantry System  

The laser head can be mounted on a gantry system to clean or texture large modules and reach all battery cells and busbars—all of this within a single sequence. 

HMI Control Panel 

The standard HMI control panel provides direct access to laser parameters near the machine. You can: 

  • Set laser parameters 
  • Enter the manual operation mode to run validation tests or calibrate the laser 
  • Display information such as the system status and the operation mode 

If you want to add custom features in the HMI, contact us

Battery Positioning Validation  

Our cameras can validate whether modules are in the right position before beginning the cleaning operation. They can measure all individual cell locations and adjust the laser cleaning positions accordingly.  

Custom Fixtures 

Our team can build custom fixtures to fix modules into position. 

Fixture Validation 

Leave no room for operation mistakes that lead to poor surface treatment performance. If you are using multiple part models, our fixture validation system can automatically read the fixture’s barcode and load its corresponding parameters.

Applications

The Battery Cleaning Machine is the ideal solution to clean, texture, and etch all types of electric battery components, including busbars, battery packs, housings, cells, modules, cans, caps, lids, foils, tabs, and hairpins. 

Battery cell cleaning

Battery Cell Cleaning & Battery Tray Marking 

Contaminants can be removed from battery cells without etching the surface, which is very important for cells with a protective nickel plating.  

Fiber lasers can also be used to etch data matrix codes and serial numbers on a variety of battery components to implement traceability. 

 

Avoid Unnecessary Downtime with Remote Support 

Whether you need on-site or remote support, our engineers and laser experts can rapidly identify the cause of your problems, making sure your production operations are up and running in no time. With the machine’s remote functionalities, remote support is secure and always available.
