With an aggressive deadline for implementation, the Lion and JR Automation teams recognized that they would first have to conceptualize the end-to-end solution. To do so, JR Automation built a fully-functioning prototype system, using key automation elements that the final production system would require. This meant creating a solution capable of Hi Pot testing, adhesive application, pressing, lasers, welding and final testing, all while being flexible enough to be adjusted as the project’s scope evolved.
Once the prototype system was delivering production-quality battery packs, the teams then scaled up the system in a matter of months to deliver a fully automated solution. Spanning multiple JR Automation production facilities, the full production system is a prime example of JR Automation’s ability to design complex, large-scale solutions for its customers.
