  • Our heart beats for electrification

    Together with our customers in the field of electric driving we have been shaping the transformation of the automotive industry. With the increasing conversion to battery-powered vehicles, we are facing new challenges every day and support the expansion of production capacities in the area of battery assembly.

Whitepaper: Lithium-ion battery repair

The service life of a battery can be extended through repair and reuse. This makes sense from both an ecological and an economic point of view.

 

Learn more about the development of repair lines and the challenges of the circular battery economy in our new whitepaper.

Our services in the field of electric vehicles

In the course of powertrain electrification, new production facilities are being built worldwide. Whether planning, optimization or maintenance of the cell factory, the battery factory or electric vehicle factory, the peripheral logistics including the charging infrastructure – Leadec contributes its expertise to support the industry in its transformation process. The world’s automotive factories are our home. We are shaping the industry’s transformation together with our electric mobility customers.

Full service at each step

Leadec supports manufacturers along the entire value chain, from battery cells and battery pack systems through to the final assembly of battery-powered vehicles. Services such as engineering, assembly line maintenance, pre-assembly resources, and supply logistics are key focus areas for us.

It's all about the battery – current projects

The battery is an electric vehicle’s central component. It accounts for 30 to 40 percent of the added value, and the cells in turn account for 60 to 80 percent of this. Battery production is a new territory for many OEMs. Leadec has been gaining experience in this field for years and has proven its competence. ­ 

Factory planning for battery manufacturer

Solid-state batteries are the new stars in the battery sky: fire- and explosion-proof, 15-year lifespan and cheap to produce. In Saxony (Germany), the company Altech wants to manufacture the new batteries. Leadec is responsible for the planning of plants and production processes for the future-oriented manufacturing site. The Altech's Group future production plant is expected to produce 10,000 battery modules per year, each with a capacity of 10 kWh. There are many possible applications for the solid-state batteries.

 

The batteries will be used in stationary energy storage systems, for example for renewable energies (wind, solar), as a component of the charging infrastructure for e-vehicles and in industry. Batteries also serve as home energy storage systems to provide a buffer between power generation and power consumption. And last but not least, electricity suppliers can avoid peak load capping in their megaparks.

Building up battery production

With planning services, Leadec has supported the Volkswagen Group Components plant in Braunschweig in building up the battery production. The supporting tasks include planning and setting up the fully automated MEB HV battery assembly lines including testing facilities. Up to 500,000 batteries for models based on the modular electric drive matrix (MEB) are assembled annually at the Braunschweig plant. Series production of MEB batteries takes place using state-of-the-art, largely fully automated production facilities in a 40,000-square-meter manufacturing hall. 

 

Leadec has been involved in the project for Volkswagen since 2018 and has accompanied it through all project phases to its current status. And we continue to contribute our jointly acquired know-how to plan further production lines.

Pre-assembly and logistics

Sophisticated lithium-ion batteries for plug-in hybrids or all-electric vehicles are built in Kamenz near Dresden. Within a few months, Leadec planned and implemented a service model for the pre-assembly of different battery pack housings here at its own site outside the factory premises. The innovative supply concept includes just-in-sequence delivery as well as cratings and quality management.

 

The customer was able to concentrate entirely on setting up its assembly lines for the electric vehicle batteries. We took over the upstream component assembly and were thus able to make an important contribution to shortening the time to market. At the same location, Leadec is responsible for the maintenance work in the battery assembly line.

Battery line maintenance

Leadec is responsible for the production equipment maintenance for battery production in Kamenz and for the entire production equipment maintenance for the assembly lines in a plant in Jawor, Poland. The two contracts from one manufacturer are the first of their kind in Europe.

 

Due to Leadec’s expertise in handling new technologies for a battery line, renowned references in the field of maintenance in the region, and innovative approaches, Leadec prevailed over several competitors. Our service includes production equipment maintenance for assembly lines on which automotive battery systems are assembled and the associated automated guided vehicles.

Battery repair for electric vans

Since September 2022, Leadec has been responsible for the repair of high-voltage batteries of electric vans at its Hoyerswerda site. The service specialist is thus expanding its range of services in the battery segment. 

 

The heart of an electric van is the lithium-ion batteries. In the event of a defect, they are not recycled directly but are now repaired by Leadec in Hoyerswerda. Defective batteries of an automobile manufacturer are delivered there from European markets and repaired within a narrow time frame. The battery is not only the most expensive but also the most raw material-intensive component of an electric drive. With the repair, we are making a significant contribution to greater sustainability and resource conservation.
