Automated line for battery lid (Process2)

Automated line for battery lid (Process 2)


  • Year: 2021
  • Project type: Greenfield
  • Order value: 1,7 MEuro
  • Scope: Turnkey project
  • Location: Dilsen-Stokkem, Belgium


Capacity increase From 45,000 to 135,000 units.

A new line was built in the factory, parallel to the old line.
The old line was still in use while new equipment was being installed in the new line. Then during summer robots, Sonderhoff and various fixtures were moved over to the new line.

Some of the unique technologies we installed in this project was:

Beta Guard: A system that applies sealant on the products joints.

Leakage test: The product gets welded together in Olofström (Sweden) then shipped to Belgium to apply the Beta guard on the joints, in to an oven and then a leakage test.

Sonderhoff: Cushioning material that is applied to the product to reduce vibrations etc.

Robot Cells Volvo Cars
