Strama-MPS offers turnkey assembly lines to assemble vehicle battery modules for electric and hybrid vehicle applications.
Many years of experience with battery modules
Whether BEV, REEV or PHEV, or passenger car, bus, municipal vehicle, lift truck, transporter or truck; the single battery modules provide the basis for complete high-voltage systems in all electric vehicles. Managing this process chain requires many years of experience in the sectors:
- Connecting logistics workflows
- Measuring and testing technology
- High voltage technology.
Strama-MPS has proven its expertise by globally established applications for well-known customers. We will also gladly offer processing of your battery cells to high quality, 100% tested and ready-to-install battery modules. High throughput rates, flexible assembly strategies, sophisticated test processes and monitored assembly steps are typical for our solutions.
Flexible integration of manual and automatic processes
The cells to be processed are manually or automatically taken from the delivery packaging and fed into the stations. Identification and sorting, but also the defined cell positioning and fixing occurs on the assembly lines developed by Strama-MPS. These lines are able to assemble further parts automatically, such as cooling systems, connector plugs and cable harnesses as well as many other components. Or, we create worker stations for you which result in highly variable production possibilities by being flexibly linked to the automatic processes in the line.

Continuous quality inspection by advanced testing systems
As an expert in the field of testing systems and test equipment Strama-MPS integrates all necessary test steps giving them a full overview of the produced quality. For instance, End-of-Line-Testers (EoL) covering the following test criteria are integrated:
- Cooler tightness
- Housing tightness
- SW checking and flashing, if necessary
- Voltage test
- Temperature test
- HV test
- Insulation test· Charge status, with recharging, if necessary
Individual assembly concept for your application
We will gladly prepare an assembly concept for your product with customized logistics solution. Whether robot, AGV, belt system or trolley: We provide the right solution for you.
Advanced simulation tools for maximum project safety
If required, we have advanced simulation tools available to check the production strategies already at the early stages of implementation. Thus, we give you best opportunity to plan ahead and reliable data on worker deployment, degree of self-containment and throughput rates.
Automatic data acquisition, evaluation and visualization
Production data are recorded, evaluations and statistics issued and the processes visualized by the process software connected to the host PC.
