InoBat & Siemens for Customized Battery Cell Development
Siemens announced that innovative R&D and battery cell manufacturer for electric mobility InoBat Auto has selected Siemens’ electrical, automation, and digital technology portfolio to digitalize its entire value chain for electric vehicle battery production. Siemens is a leader in automation, industrial software and intelligent infrastructure using Siemens’ technologies and domain expertise, InoBat can take advantage of flexible, transparent, and efficient processes across all fields of production, help create lasting success in battery production and speed up time to market. InoBat can use Siemens’ solutions to develop a holistic digital factory approach in all its R&D and Gigafactory facilities.
InoBat Auto plans to use a variety of products and solutions for their individual machines and production lines including hardware, Simatic Controllers, HMI screens, light stack, network topology, standardized machine interface and energy monitoring. With Siemens’ Xcelerator portfolio InoBat creates a digital twin to advance the development of premium customized electric vehicle batteries.
InoBat can use the Simcenter portfolio and NX software tool suites to cover the design and optimisation of both the physical and chemical nature of its products, incorporating InoBat’s proprietarychemistry output into Siemens’ cell design and simulation systems. In parallel to the collaboration in cell and product development, InoBat and Siemens plan to collaborate to develop and implement a full digital factory approach in all of the InoBat R&D and Gigafactory facilities, providing a group wide software ecosystem for both internal and external customers. Using Teamcenter, Opcenter and MindSphere, combining with Siemens’ automation product portfolio, will provide InoBat with the ability to increase the output from all its facilities while maintaining a high level of environmental protection and operational effectiveness.
