“ees Europe”: system supplier h-kon presents innovative end-of-line test technology.


h-kon, the Ravensburg-based equipment supplier and process developer, will be presenting the latest developments in end-of-line test technology at this year’s “ees Europe” in Munich. ees Europe is the continent’s largest and most international exhibition for batteries and energy storage systems; along with three other energy exhibitions, the event will be held at Messe München from 14-16 June 2023 as part of “The smarter E Europe” platform. 
Progressively more specific power and energy densities require a constant stream of new production and testing systems – a challenge that h-kon has successfully tackled for more than four years. The southern Germany-based equipment supplier and process developer is one of the leading German companies in the field of the construction and design of assembly systems. To this end, h-kon also specialises in end-of-line test technology for battery modules and lithium-ion battery packs, working with customers around the globe.  

At “ees Europe”, h-kon will be presenting the latest developments in end-of-line test technology: The test benches cover all required test steps such as SOC status, SOC adjustment, customer-specific test steps like bond failure tests and screw head tests, CAN and SPI communication, system analysis, module and pack conditioning, measurement of outer dimensions and weights, high potting and dielectric strength. Data logs are transferred directly to the MES via an OPC UA interface. Customers can access a dynamic user interface to generate their own test sequence. 

As CEO and joint partner Roland Arnold explains, h-kon specifically prioritises the smooth integration of test technology into the production line: “The end-of-line test technology must be capable of adapting perfectly to the specific bandwidth and cycle rate of the battery production line. In addition, we deploy robots to achieve an extremely high level of test stand automation through fully automated contacting and automated module changing equipment.” 

Visitors to h-kon's booth at ees Europe can get a closer look at an example of this test technology. Roland Arnold will be joined by other experts from the sales, process development and project planning departments who will be on hand to answer questions at the booth.
