Ultrasonic Battery Bonder: Asterion EV™

Asterion EV Key Features

  • Automatic large area wedge bonder for battery production
  • Ultrasonically bonds wires and ribbons
  • Faster cycle time with direct-drive XYZT motion system
  • High quality bonding and insitu process monitoring capabilities
  • Large bondable area 300 x 860 mm
  • Standalone or automated inline configurations

The Asterion-EV™ ultrasonic battery bonder provides an extended bondable area for battery production, whilst utilising the proven architecture from the Asterion platform. With hundreds of systems installed worldwide, the Asterion EV ultrasonic battery bonder is capable of bonding a wide range of battery types, including cylindrical cell and prismatic systems.

In addition to the larger bonding area, features include advanced pattern recognition capabilities and extremely tight process controls. Together, these deliver exceptional productivity, bonding quality and reliability.

The enlarged bondable area also enhances flexibility and reduces line integration costs. The Asterion battery bonder is driven by a precise direct-drive motion system that requires minimum maintenance and delivers high control and repeatability.

The graphical editor, multi-segmented bonding, global parameter change and a library of advanced software features, make programming and optimizing bonding processes, quick and easy.
