Preventing hazards in EV battery pack assembly

Preventing hazards in EV battery pack assembly


The Mobility sector is experiencing a drastic change due to the massive transition to electric vehicles (EV) which are highly eco-friendly. As one of the most expensive components in an electric car, the battery is composed of many modules connected to each other creating high voltages of up to 800 volts, which are critical for the security and overall performance of the vehicles.

Without the right precautions, these characteristics and specifications make an EV battery pack assembly very risky.

So, what are the dangers and unique challenges faced during electric car production? And how can production managers control these risks and ensure optimized electric car assembly hazard management?

In collaboration with our experts, we've developed a whitepaper that introduces and explains the challenges and risks of EV assembly, in addition to some safety and security recommendations for optimized control of the production line. The paper also contains new innovative solutions to manage EV assembly hazards that have been tested and approved by Dekra (in conjunction with the tools according to IEC 60900:2018, IEC 60664-1, EN 60745-1).

 

This whitepaper will help you establish the best strategies of safety and security management for your work environment.

 

 

1. Risks of electric car assembly include:

  • Electrification and electrical accidents due to the contact with live parts
  • Electrical shocks and their potential impacts
  • Electric arc in the event of short circuits

2. Solutions to secure your assembly line include:

  • Utilizing insulated tools to avoid short circuits or any unwanted contacts with high-voltage components
  • Transducer-based tightening tools equipped with torque and angle sensors
  • Screw feeder solutions, positioning systems and multi bolt spindle solutions for high assembly quality
