Electric vehicle manufacturers can accelerate their production with smart, flexible operations and integrated automation solutions. We can help you start and improve your electric vehicle production to better compete in this fast-growing market, with industry know-how, technical expertise and digital technologies.
Aggressive timelines usually mean more cost and complexity. But your electric vehicle production doesn’t have to be this way. And we can help, with:
You can learn about how these capabilities can help you – and get in-person technology demonstrations – at our new Electric Vehicle Innovation Center in California. Whether you’re a startup electric vehicle company or mature automaker, we can help at any point in your journey.
Designing Operations: Learn about auto production best practices and get help with designing manufacturing infrastructures and building supply chains.
Digitizing Operations: Discover how connecting operations can help workers make faster and better decisions.
Optimizing Connected Operations: Identify ways you can improve efficiencies and reduce unplanned downtime with information-enabled electric vehicle production.
Smart manufacturing gives you the most from your investments today. And it continues to provide value as your operations grow and evolve. Right now, global automakers are already using smart machines, analytics, and augmented reality (AR) to gain a competitive edge.
We can help you use today’s smartest technologies to separate yourself from the pack. Some opportunities include:
Outside the plant, we can help you build a world-class supply chain. And find the machine builders and partners you need globally.
Ultimately, only massive factories, gigafactories will be able to produce the billions of watts of energy needed to power the world’s electric vehicles. For now, as electric vehicle production scales up, so must battery production.
We can help you design and build digitalized battery factories that deliver high volumes, at the speed and quality required. Key components of these facilities include:
OEM Hirata turned to our technologies to create a machine for the industry’s first mass production line for electric vehicle batteries. Standardizing on our products helped Hirata reduce its machine’s footprint by 30 percent. And with support from our local team, the company can reduce startup times by 10 percent.
Poor controls specifications. Technology integration challenges. A lack of training or spare parts. Issues like these can spring up during startup and delay your launch.
We can help you avoid these problems and keep your launch on track with our program management services.
Execute a Better Launch
Our qualified launch- and program-management teams aren’t just experts in our technologies. They know the relevant industry standards, and can interpret and apply them to help you:
Avoid Cost Overruns
We can educate your machine builders on technologies and best practices. This helps ensure specification conformity and avoids additional costs. We can also monitor machine builder deliverables within your program to make sure your launch is successful.
Achieve Proper Integration
We know how to manage the technology integration that is so crucial to your electric vehicle production operations. This integration can result in:
