Battery Laser Cleaning Workstation
The Battery Cleaning Workstation is the perfect solution for low-volume production lines or to start a new one quickly. Available for purchase or rental, it provides a smooth transition to a fully automated solution that can keep up with high production rates. You can use the workstation to clean, texture and mark battery module components in a single operation.
The workstation can be adapted for all module sizes, small or large. Certified Class-1, it includes everything you need to ensure safety.
Benefits of the Battery Cleaning Workstation
Develop Your Process with Us
The Battery Cleaning Workstation is the perfect companion to test your manufacturing process in R&D and early production phases. Laserax will work with you to make sure you meet your specifications.
Clean, Mark, Texture
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—all of this with a single unit.
Fast and Precise Cleaning
Our laser is preprogrammed to only clean the battery pole areas needed for bonding/welding, minimizing the total cleaning time.
Adapted to Your Product Requirements
Our range of laser powers and head motions allow the Battery Cleaning Workstation to be tailored to your requirements when it comes to speed and module dimensions.
Production Ramp-Up Solution
As new battery technologies and production lines emerge, manufacturers must find ways to produce prototypes and early production modules with the same quality and overall process than in full production.
The Battery Cleaning Workstation is there to help manufacturers produce early production modules at an industrial quality level. The workstation is offered both for rental or purchase to support production before a full-scale Automated Battery Cleaning Machine is required.
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 workstation 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 Workstation Options
The workstation is powered by a fiber laser whose power can range from 20W to 100W. 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.
The laser head and module support plate 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.
The touchscreen HMI can be used to easily choose the right laser process when cleaning or texturing different battery parts and materials. It can also be used to control other automation features and avoid manual laser head adjustments.

The Battery Cleaning Workstation 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 Laser Cleaning
Laser cleaning can remove all type of contaminants from battery components, such as electrolytes, dust, oils, and oxides.
Battery Laser Texturing
Laser texturing can change the surface texture and roughness to prepare surfaces for adhesive bonding as well as to improve heat transfer.
Battery Laser Marking
Laser marking can create permanent identifiers such as data matrix codes and serial numbers on battery components.
Complete Remote Service Whenever You Need It
To provide quick technical support wherever you are, our laser experts and engineers can gain full control of the laser by activating a remote gateway. Our technology is completely secure: it uses a secure cloud VPN, a web-based VNC or HMI, and a direct connection to a camera and to the laser system.
