      In Q2/2017, Jonas & Redmann delivered the 20th Automatic Bundling Machine for Fresenius Medical Care (FMC) and successfully installed it in Ogden, Utah, USA.

      An Automatic Bundling Machine performs all the steps necessary to assemble hollow fibers for dialyzer production, thus processing them into bundles with a fixed number of fibers. As a core piece of the dialyzer, such a bundle then filters the blood of a patient. In view of the highest demands on product quality and safety, the fiber bundles had to be assembled by hand. The background: The highly sensitive, filigreed fibers have a diameter of only about a quarter millimeter – they are roughly as thin as a human hair and also hollow inside – and must all be undamaged as a component of a medical product. The Machine not only meets the demanding production requirements, but at the same time reduces the production costs.

      Dialyzers and the required hollow fibers, Fresenius Medical Care manufactures, among others, in St. Wendel (Germany), in L’Arbresle (France), in Inukai (Japan) and in Ogden, USA. In this largest plant in the USA, Fresenius Medical Care already achieved very good results in terms of quantity and efficiency before the installation of the Automatic Bundling Machine, which could now be significantly increased. The installed machine guarantees an Operational Equipment Efficiency (OEE) of 99.76% with a throughput of 15.680 bundles / 24h (depending on the format).

      Jonas & Redmann can look back at this year’s SNEC in Shanghai with total satisfaction. Over a period of three days at the world’s most important photovoltaic trade show, Jonas & Redmann presented a series of innovations which, taken together, represent a new generation of automation systems for loading and unloading high-efficiency processes in the production of crystalline silicon solar cells.

      Product Information: TRAY AUTOMATION

      Tray Automation

      With the improved TRAY AUTOMATION, Jonas & Redmann offers an automated system for loading and unloading inline coating machines which not only meets the particularly high demands for cell handling, but also provides best-in-class performance in terms of throughput, uptime and footprint. This modular system can be adapted to match the specific requirements of any process (e.g. PECVD, PVD, CVD or ALD). It relies on gripping technologies specifically designed for handling extremely thin wafers with very sensitive coatings. Only the most gentle handling concepts based on patented gripping technologies were used in the development of this system. For heterojunction (HJT) cell production, which requires surface-friendly handling and pinpoint wafer placement in the tray, Jonas & Redmann provides a highly accurate camera-based kit which is proven to increase the efficiency of the cells through precise positioning of the wafer in the tray pocket. The platform also offers a series of innovations for improved coating accuracy and fracture reduction. The standard tray stabilization and centering device ensures proper tray placement and excellent positioning results. The system can easily be configured for different tray sizes (e.g. 6×4, 5×4, 6×9, 6×7, 8×8, 9×11). Intelligent engineering allows for simple format changes via plug and play. The integration of various measuring systems (i.e. for wafer fracture and color control) into the system is just one of many other options available. Depending on the production environment and processing equipment, the extremely compact TRAY AUTOMATION can also be used as a double-end solution. TRAY AUTOMATION is designed for a throughput of 6,500 wafers per hour.

      WHD HTP 10000 and WHP HTP 8000

      Since entering the photovoltaic market in 2000, Jonas & Redmann have installed more than 1000 WHD and WHP systems around the world. With the new generation of these automation systems for diffusion tube furnaces and PECVD tube systems, Jonas & Redmann currently offers the most efficient loading and unloading solutions for this processing stage. The compact systems feature a modular design and can easily be adapted to different production environments and manufacturing types. Depending on customer requirements, measuring systems can also be integrated into these platforms to ensure constant process monitoring. Thanks to continuous improvement of the individual modules and handling components, the system guarantees, even at very high throughputs, a low fracture rate of under 0.03% and reliable operation with an uptime of > 99%.

      Heraeus Medical from Wehrheim commissioned Jonas & Redmann with the design and production of a bottling line for the product bone cement Palacos R + G pro.

      The special machine, specially designed for mounting, filling and laser marking the Palacos R + G pro applicator, integrates seamlessly into the overall line. Thanks to the high dosing accuracy, the application systems can be filled exactly and assembled with the highest quality. Reliable and economical product labeling is provided by an integrated CO2 laser labeller.

      Dr. Britta Bär, Head of Supply Chain Management & Production Heraeus Medical: “By investing in a new production line, we are meeting the growing demand for our bone cement. Jonas & Redmann is a specialist in the automation of filling processes with many years of experience. We were very professionally advised and supported by the Berliners in the conception phase. That is why we have awarded Jonas & Redmann the contract for the realization of the plant. We are happy about the good partnership. “

      Vehicles are increasingly a part of their networked environment. E-mobility, autonomous driving and Car2X are transforming efficient data exchange in the car and over the Internet into a central vehicle component. Over the next five years, it is estimated that there will be a quarter of billion networked cars on the road around the world, a gigantic growth market. With these new scenarios, the demands placed on connectivity hardware are growing.

      The company Laid (initially Novero) specializes in the integration of mobile devices in vehicles. The subsidiary of the technology provider Laird develops and manufactures innovative solutions for vehicle communication. As an addition to wireless charging for different types of mobile phones, the Berlin-based company offers a groundbreaking solution through which the mobile device can also be electromagnetically coupled to the internal vehicle antennas.

      Scalable modular cell concept for efficient multi-variant production 

      The company selected Jonas & Redmann to implement a combination of fully and semi-automated mix-model production in Dabendorf, Germany.

      As innovative as the product is, the customer-specified plant design is equally challenging. For this mix-model production, in which demand for individual product models and variants can quickly change, utilization and deliverability are critical parameters of system design. In order to react quickly to changing market requirements, the line must provide maximum flexibility.

      To produce up to seven product variants, Jonas & Redmann designed a line comprising self-sufficient modular cells , which are connected via a workpiece carrier system. The standard module cells were integrated with a number of different customer-specific, complex pick and place applications, as well as various press, screw and laser processes. For this production line, the handling specialist Jonas & Redmann has developed different gripper technologies that are particularly gentle to surfaces, some of which can perform several functions simultaneously.

      A number of test stations ensure constant quality control. For example, in order to contact various product types, a cell was developed which not only ensures precise handling of the pre-installed WLC device, but which also approaches contact points that differ from product to product with high accuracy. A robot cell with image recognition and integrated laser marking performs a final pin check. Furthermore, the large number of product variants requires production systems which can be refitted and retrofitted quickly and easily. Simple, compact mechanics and pivot mechanisms ensure that the operator can change parts easily.

      Automation from a single source

      Another customer requirement was to set up the machine with control and drive technology from Siemens. The brains of the production line is the PC-based software S7-1500 software controller, which communicates with the independent module cells. The software controller has the advantage of running completely independent of Windows. A Windows reboot or crash thus no longer influences the execution of the control program. The use of PC-based automation also allows a consistently compact and modular design of the WLC production line.  The system, which is cost effective and low-maintenance, can be expanded easily in the future (software and HMI), without changing the existing foundation.

      The user interface was created using the visualization software TIA Portal WinCC V13 and guides the operator with maximum usability through all process steps. Graphical illustrations of the individual modules and a module selection with function text ensure easy orientation for the operator. Process parameters that are taught once are stored as a record and can be accessed again as needed. Quality-relevant data can be recorded in definable depth and, thanks to a modular information system and project-oriented process diagram, can be easily retrieved, including mobile via email or SMS.

      In conclusion, the Jonas & Redmann module cell concept reliably guarantees the required high degree of variant and volume flexibility to Novero Laird Business. Plant capacity can be scaled across multiple investments in small increments.

      The versatile ModuleCell for an extended service life

      The Jonas & Redmann modular kit enables standardised module cells in different construction sizes to be designed quickly. Combined with a large number of standardised automation components, customer-specific processing and mounting tasks can be converted into modern systems technology within a very short period of time.

      A tool carrier transport system links the self-sufficient module cells and turns them into complete mounting systems. In this way, as many functions as required can be implemented one after the other through successive sequencing. The type of tool carrier and the degree of automation or linkage can be selected by the customer as required, depending on the piece number to be produced. When piece numbers during the product launch stage are low, or when there is a high degree of partial flexibility, manual jobs with a low degree of automation and investment can be created. If higher piece numbers are required during the product life cycle, the modules can be extended to create an automated mounting system. Individual modules can easily be added or removed since each module is fitted with its own control system.

      The innovative GR01 and GL01 basic machines

      Jonas & Redmann also continue to offer the GR01 rotary indexing module and the GL01 linear module in different sizes for small to medium-sized components and high cycle outputs. The cost-efficient, compact Jonas & Redmann GR01 is based on a highly flexible approach with regard to scale, the handling path and handling period. What is new here is the use of a rotary indexing machine with a special “cam disc”. Instead of being controlled via a mechanical cam disc, the system is controlled via an electrical (‘virtual’) one. The concept combines the advantage of a mechanical curve with the advantage of the flexibility offered by electrical axes. It also stands out for the use of high-quality, tried and tested individual components, through its durability and very high technical availability, and in this way reduces maintenance costs considerably. Modules of this type are the system of choice with fast, overlapping movement sequences. The GR01 enables a cycle output of 60 cycles/min with simple processing. Through multiple processing, the system output can be increased accordingly.
      In principle, the Jonas & Redmann GL01 offers the same development approach. The linear system is designed for larger components and a considerably greater number of workstations. The GL01 is generally available in three module sizes, which can be connected to each other via decoupling modules.
      Both systems, the GR01 and GL01, bring together all processing-specific advantages of a special machine and the advantages of flexible production cells that are quick to modify. In this way, the specific degrees of automation in each case, as well as fluctuations in variant and piece numbers, can be efficiently managed throughout the life cycle of a product.

      Production of lithium-ion batteries – Precision and reproducible deep drawing of composite foils

      Jonas & Redmann developed a precision, flexible R&D system for the reproducible deep drawing of composite foils, e.g. aluminium composite foils. The (stand-alone) laboratory machine offers an array of process modes and optional expansions.

      Benefits at a glance:

      After a short introduction, Jonas & Redmann laboratory systems can be commissioned in just a few easy steps and are easy to operate.

      All Jonas & Redmann laboratory systems are low-maintenance and pre-calibrated.
      High-precision system components produce reproducible test results.

      System options enable the evaluation of a wide range of process parameters as a basis for scaling up or optimising existing processes, for example.

      Thanks to its compact, modular design equipped with rollers, the system is easy to handle in laboratory environments.

      In contrast to hard case battery cells, foil cells (also coffee bag or pouch cells) made of aluminium composite foils offer advantages when it comes to gravimetric energy density as well as a high degree of battery format flexibility thanks to the relatively easy processability of the housing materials.
      Depending on the specification, the pouch cell must be deep-drawed into varying shapes. The quality of the deep drawing process has a direct impact on the parameters life cycle (at the cell and system level) and safety. To implement an industrialised, stable and high-quality deep drawing process, the largely unknown behaviour of multiple layer composite foils in deep drawing processes must be evaluated in prototype and material testing and examinations on the optimum parameter settings of the forces applied to the blank.
      Jonas & Redmann offers a semi-automatic, modular laboratory system for these tasks. The new development is suitable for universities and research institutes as well as companies for evaluating production and process parameters.

      Flexible and scalable

      The easy-to-use, scalable laboratory system offers a wide range of functions. Optional expansions offer flexible options for using the machine in product development.
      The control has a open design, thus enabling customer-specific integration and an expansion of the functions and sensors. The depth (distance), deep drawing force (forming force), deep drawing speed (forming speed), blank-holder force and holding time parameters are freely programmable.
      The drawing punch, draw ring and blank holding device can be optionally set to a defined temperature (room temperature up to 120°C) by the integrated heating elements.
      The optional punching tool (hole punch) makes it possible to index deep-drawed half shells. Two half shells can be aligned using these indexing holes when assembling battery cells.
      Similar to the drawing punch, a servo-electric spindle press can be mounted instead of a pneumatic drive. This increases precision and allows for additional deep drawing operating modes.
      In addition, the standard system repeatability of <1% of full scale (nominal load) can be optionally reduced to <0.3% of full scale.

      User friendly and low-maintenance

      The compact system is operated using a mobile control panel with a touchscreen, which makes it easy to operate and display operating and fault messages. The process parameters are entered and recipes are created by an external PC or the operating personnel. The control writes the various machine process parameters cyclically (including the time stamp) to a single data file. The interval for each parameter – within the limit defined by the system – is freely programmable via the HMI.

      Innovation by cooperation

      Jonas & Redmann considers the entire process chain of broad basic research and applied research, including the development of prototypes in the system context, and cooperates with scientific partners particularly in the field of battery production. By working with research institutes such as the “Battery LabFactory Braunschweig” (BLB), it is possible to efficiently develop products and production technologies with equal efficiency. Alexander Tornow, graduate engineer at the Institute of Machine Tools and Production Technology (IWF) at the Technische Universität Braunschweig stresses in this context: “The laboratory deep drawing system from Jonas & Redmann, which is used in the Battery LabFactory, is an excellent example of the transfer of scientific knowledge to optimize research facilities.”

      A precise and flexible laser welder automates the assembly of prismatic lithium-ion cells to battery packs and makes the process reliable, reproducible, efficient and cost-effective. Both the mechanics and the control and drive technology can be adapted to different production tasks.

      The advantage in experience of Asian companies in the development and manufacturing of consumer lithium-ion cells has ultimately meant that the majority of local battery manufacturers do not develop their own capacity. The majority of European automobile companies and their system suppliers are currently more focused on follow-up processes. Common practice is to procure finished battery cells and then to assemble these into battery packs. Anyone wishing to produce the expected increasing quantity at the highest quality and competitive cost must automate assembly and develop a stable, reproducible and cost-effective process.

      Jonas & Redmann has developed an automatic laser welder for joining tabs of prismatic cells which exactly fulfills these requirements. The machine can be used flexibly for various welding tasks in product development and is equally suited for production at an industrial scale. For pure serial production, the approach can be further simplified and optimized.

      Fine, secure and low-loss – laser welding preferred

      Laser welding enables extremely fine, permanently secure and low (electrical) loss joints, which has been confirmed in advance tests. The intended primary application – welding many thin aluminum and copper tabs – requires a high-performance laser system with extremely precise focus. In particular, the welding depth must be reproducibly adjustable to within a few micrometers so that only the desired material layers are welded. Jonas & Redmann implemented this with a 6 kW fiber laser with a spot diameter of 140 µm.

      Precise, dynamic and flexible – a mechanism with many degrees of freedom

      The mechanism must be correspondingly stiff and precise, and the laser head must be flexibly and dynamically positionable within the workspace (±440 mm (X) / ±540 mm (Y) / ±150 mm (Z)). The laser head is mounted on a gantry, is servomotor driven in three axes, and can be swiveled by ±30° in the direction of transport. This means that every point in the workspace can be reached by the laser head with a precision of ±0.02 mm. The laser optics have their own control mechanism and can be NC driven in three axes. With this, high-precision elevation profiles can be mapped, whereby the welding depth can be exactly and reproducibly controlled using both the speed of travel and laser power.

      In Q2/2017, Jonas & Redmann delivered the 20th Automatic Bundling Machine for Fresenius Medical Care (FMC) and successfully installed it in Ogden, Utah, USA.

      An Automatic Bundling Machine performs all the steps necessary to assemble hollow fibers for dialyzer production, thus processing them into bundles with a fixed number of fibers. As a core piece of the dialyzer, such a bundle then filters the blood of a patient. In view of the highest demands on product quality and safety, the fiber bundles had to be assembled by hand. The background: The highly sensitive, filigreed fibers have a diameter of only about a quarter millimeter – they are roughly as thin as a human hair and also hollow inside – and must all be undamaged as a component of a medical product. The Machine not only meets the demanding production requirements, but at the same time reduces the production costs.

      Dialyzers and the required hollow fibers, Fresenius Medical Care manufactures, among others, in St. Wendel (Germany), in L’Arbresle (France), in Inukai (Japan) and in Ogden, USA. In this largest plant in the USA, Fresenius Medical Care already achieved very good results in terms of quantity and efficiency before the installation of the Automatic Bundling Machine, which could now be significantly increased. The installed machine guarantees an Operational Equipment Efficiency (OEE) of 99.76% with a throughput of 15.680 bundles / 24h (depending on the format).

      Jonas & Redmann can look back at this year’s SNEC in Shanghai with total satisfaction. Over a period of three days at the world’s most important photovoltaic trade show, Jonas & Redmann presented a series of innovations which, taken together, represent a new generation of automation systems for loading and unloading high-efficiency processes in the production of crystalline silicon solar cells.

      Product Information: TRAY AUTOMATION

      Tray Automation

      With the improved TRAY AUTOMATION, Jonas & Redmann offers an automated system for loading and unloading inline coating machines which not only meets the particularly high demands for cell handling, but also provides best-in-class performance in terms of throughput, uptime and footprint. This modular system can be adapted to match the specific requirements of any process (e.g. PECVD, PVD, CVD or ALD). It relies on gripping technologies specifically designed for handling extremely thin wafers with very sensitive coatings. Only the most gentle handling concepts based on patented gripping technologies were used in the development of this system. For heterojunction (HJT) cell production, which requires surface-friendly handling and pinpoint wafer placement in the tray, Jonas & Redmann provides a highly accurate camera-based kit which is proven to increase the efficiency of the cells through precise positioning of the wafer in the tray pocket. The platform also offers a series of innovations for improved coating accuracy and fracture reduction. The standard tray stabilization and centering device ensures proper tray placement and excellent positioning results. The system can easily be configured for different tray sizes (e.g. 6×4, 5×4, 6×9, 6×7, 8×8, 9×11). Intelligent engineering allows for simple format changes via plug and play. The integration of various measuring systems (i.e. for wafer fracture and color control) into the system is just one of many other options available. Depending on the production environment and processing equipment, the extremely compact TRAY AUTOMATION can also be used as a double-end solution. TRAY AUTOMATION is designed for a throughput of 6,500 wafers per hour.

      WHD HTP 10000 and WHP HTP 8000

      Since entering the photovoltaic market in 2000, Jonas & Redmann have installed more than 1000 WHD and WHP systems around the world. With the new generation of these automation systems for diffusion tube furnaces and PECVD tube systems, Jonas & Redmann currently offers the most efficient loading and unloading solutions for this processing stage. The compact systems feature a modular design and can easily be adapted to different production environments and manufacturing types. Depending on customer requirements, measuring systems can also be integrated into these platforms to ensure constant process monitoring. Thanks to continuous improvement of the individual modules and handling components, the system guarantees, even at very high throughputs, a low fracture rate of under 0.03% and reliable operation with an uptime of > 99%.

      Heraeus Medical from Wehrheim commissioned Jonas & Redmann with the design and production of a bottling line for the product bone cement Palacos R + G pro.

      The special machine, specially designed for mounting, filling and laser marking the Palacos R + G pro applicator, integrates seamlessly into the overall line. Thanks to the high dosing accuracy, the application systems can be filled exactly and assembled with the highest quality. Reliable and economical product labeling is provided by an integrated CO2 laser labeller.

      Dr. Britta Bär, Head of Supply Chain Management & Production Heraeus Medical: “By investing in a new production line, we are meeting the growing demand for our bone cement. Jonas & Redmann is a specialist in the automation of filling processes with many years of experience. We were very professionally advised and supported by the Berliners in the conception phase. That is why we have awarded Jonas & Redmann the contract for the realization of the plant. We are happy about the good partnership. “

      Vehicles are increasingly a part of their networked environment. E-mobility, autonomous driving and Car2X are transforming efficient data exchange in the car and over the Internet into a central vehicle component. Over the next five years, it is estimated that there will be a quarter of billion networked cars on the road around the world, a gigantic growth market. With these new scenarios, the demands placed on connectivity hardware are growing.

      The company Laid (initially Novero) specializes in the integration of mobile devices in vehicles. The subsidiary of the technology provider Laird develops and manufactures innovative solutions for vehicle communication. As an addition to wireless charging for different types of mobile phones, the Berlin-based company offers a groundbreaking solution through which the mobile device can also be electromagnetically coupled to the internal vehicle antennas.

      Scalable modular cell concept for efficient multi-variant production 

      The company selected Jonas & Redmann to implement a combination of fully and semi-automated mix-model production in Dabendorf, Germany.

      As innovative as the product is, the customer-specified plant design is equally challenging. For this mix-model production, in which demand for individual product models and variants can quickly change, utilization and deliverability are critical parameters of system design. In order to react quickly to changing market requirements, the line must provide maximum flexibility.

      To produce up to seven product variants, Jonas & Redmann designed a line comprising self-sufficient modular cells , which are connected via a workpiece carrier system. The standard module cells were integrated with a number of different customer-specific, complex pick and place applications, as well as various press, screw and laser processes. For this production line, the handling specialist Jonas & Redmann has developed different gripper technologies that are particularly gentle to surfaces, some of which can perform several functions simultaneously.

      A number of test stations ensure constant quality control. For example, in order to contact various product types, a cell was developed which not only ensures precise handling of the pre-installed WLC device, but which also approaches contact points that differ from product to product with high accuracy. A robot cell with image recognition and integrated laser marking performs a final pin check. Furthermore, the large number of product variants requires production systems which can be refitted and retrofitted quickly and easily. Simple, compact mechanics and pivot mechanisms ensure that the operator can change parts easily.

      Automation from a single source

      Another customer requirement was to set up the machine with control and drive technology from Siemens. The brains of the production line is the PC-based software S7-1500 software controller, which communicates with the independent module cells. The software controller has the advantage of running completely independent of Windows. A Windows reboot or crash thus no longer influences the execution of the control program. The use of PC-based automation also allows a consistently compact and modular design of the WLC production line.  The system, which is cost effective and low-maintenance, can be expanded easily in the future (software and HMI), without changing the existing foundation.

      Clear visualization for maximum ease of use

      The user interface was created using the visualization software TIA Portal WinCC V13 and guides the operator with maximum usability through all process steps. Graphical illustrations of the individual modules and a module selection with function text ensure easy orientation for the operator. Process parameters that are taught once are stored as a record and can be accessed again as needed. Quality-relevant data can be recorded in definable depth and, thanks to a modular information system and project-oriented process diagram, can be easily retrieved, including mobile via email or SMS.

      In conclusion, the Jonas & Redmann module cell concept reliably guarantees the required high degree of variant and volume flexibility to Novero Laird Business. Plant capacity can be scaled across multiple investments in small increments.

The laser head is mounted on a gantry, is servomotor driven in three axes, and can be swiveled by ±30° in the direction of transport. This means that every point in the workspace can be reached by the laser head with a precision of ±0.02 mm. The laser optics have their own control mechanism and can be NC driven in three axes. With this, high-precision elevation profiles can be mapped, whereby the welding depth can be exactly and reproducibly controlled using both the speed of travel and laser power.

      In Q2/2017, Jonas & Redmann delivered the 20th Automatic Bundling Machine for Fresenius Medical Care (FMC) and successfully installed it in Ogden, Utah, USA.

      An Automatic Bundling Machine performs all the steps necessary to assemble hollow fibers for dialyzer production, thus processing them into bundles with a fixed number of fibers. As a core piece of the dialyzer, such a bundle then filters the blood of a patient. In view of the highest demands on product quality and safety, the fiber bundles had to be assembled by hand. The background: The highly sensitive, filigreed fibers have a diameter of only about a quarter millimeter – they are roughly as thin as a human hair and also hollow inside – and must all be undamaged as a component of a medical product. The Machine not only meets the demanding production requirements, but at the same time reduces the production costs.

      Dialyzers and the required hollow fibers, Fresenius Medical Care manufactures, among others, in St. Wendel (Germany), in L’Arbresle (France), in Inukai (Japan) and in Ogden, USA. In this largest plant in the USA, Fresenius Medical Care already achieved very good results in terms of quantity and efficiency before the installation of the Automatic Bundling Machine, which could now be significantly increased. The installed machine guarantees an Operational Equipment Efficiency (OEE) of 99.76% with a throughput of 15.680 bundles / 24h (depending on the format).

      Jonas & Redmann can look back at this year’s SNEC in Shanghai with total satisfaction. Over a period of three days at the world’s most important photovoltaic trade show, Jonas & Redmann presented a series of innovations which, taken together, represent a new generation of automation systems for loading and unloading high-efficiency processes in the production of crystalline silicon solar cells.

      Product Information: TRAY AUTOMATION

      Tray Automation

      With the improved TRAY AUTOMATION, Jonas & Redmann offers an automated system for loading and unloading inline coating machines which not only meets the particularly high demands for cell handling, but also provides best-in-class performance in terms of throughput, uptime and footprint. This modular system can be adapted to match the specific requirements of any process (e.g. PECVD, PVD, CVD or ALD). It relies on gripping technologies specifically designed for handling extremely thin wafers with very sensitive coatings. Only the most gentle handling concepts based on patented gripping technologies were used in the development of this system. For heterojunction (HJT) cell production, which requires surface-friendly handling and pinpoint wafer placement in the tray, Jonas & Redmann provides a highly accurate camera-based kit which is proven to increase the efficiency of the cells through precise positioning of the wafer in the tray pocket. The platform also offers a series of innovations for improved coating accuracy and fracture reduction. The standard tray stabilization and centering device ensures proper tray placement and excellent positioning results. The system can easily be configured for different tray sizes (e.g. 6×4, 5×4, 6×9, 6×7, 8×8, 9×11). Intelligent engineering allows for simple format changes via plug and play. The integration of various measuring systems (i.e. for wafer fracture and color control) into the system is just one of many other options available. Depending on the production environment and processing equipment, the extremely compact TRAY AUTOMATION can also be used as a double-end solution. TRAY AUTOMATION is designed for a throughput of 6,500 wafers per hour.

      WHD HTP 10000 and WHP HTP 8000

      Since entering the photovoltaic market in 2000, Jonas & Redmann have installed more than 1000 WHD and WHP systems around the world. With the new generation of these automation systems for diffusion tube furnaces and PECVD tube systems, Jonas & Redmann currently offers the most efficient loading and unloading solutions for this processing stage. The compact systems feature a modular design and can easily be adapted to different production environments and manufacturing types. Depending on customer requirements, measuring systems can also be integrated into these platforms to ensure constant process monitoring. Thanks to continuous improvement of the individual modules and handling components, the system guarantees, even at very high throughputs, a low fracture rate of under 0.03% and reliable operation with an uptime of > 99%.

      Heraeus Medical from Wehrheim commissioned Jonas & Redmann with the design and production of a bottling line for the product bone cement Palacos R + G pro.

      The special machine, specially designed for mounting, filling and laser marking the Palacos R + G pro applicator, integrates seamlessly into the overall line. Thanks to the high dosing accuracy, the application systems can be filled exactly and assembled with the highest quality. Reliable and economical product labeling is provided by an integrated CO2 laser labeller.

      Dr. Britta Bär, Head of Supply Chain Management & Production Heraeus Medical: “By investing in a new production line, we are meeting the growing demand for our bone cement. Jonas & Redmann is a specialist in the automation of filling processes with many years of experience. We were very professionally advised and supported by the Berliners in the conception phase. That is why we have awarded Jonas & Redmann the contract for the realization of the plant. We are happy about the good partnership. “

      Vehicles are increasingly a part of their networked environment. E-mobility, autonomous driving and Car2X are transforming efficient data exchange in the car and over the Internet into a central vehicle component. Over the next five years, it is estimated that there will be a quarter of billion networked cars on the road around the world, a gigantic growth market. With these new scenarios, the demands placed on connectivity hardware are growing.

      The company Laid (initially Novero) specializes in the integration of mobile devices in vehicles. The subsidiary of the technology provider Laird develops and manufactures innovative solutions for vehicle communication. As an addition to wireless charging for different types of mobile phones, the Berlin-based company offers a groundbreaking solution through which the mobile device can also be electromagnetically coupled to the internal vehicle antennas.

      Scalable modular cell concept for efficient multi-variant production 

      The company selected Jonas & Redmann to implement a combination of fully and semi-automated mix-model production in Dabendorf, Germany.

      As innovative as the product is, the customer-specified plant design is equally challenging. For this mix-model production, in which demand for individual product models and variants can quickly change, utilization and deliverability are critical parameters of system design. In order to react quickly to changing market requirements, the line must provide maximum flexibility.

      To produce up to seven product variants, Jonas & Redmann designed a line comprising self-sufficient modular cells , which are connected via a workpiece carrier system. The standard module cells were integrated with a number of different customer-specific, complex pick and place applications, as well as various press, screw and laser processes. For this production line, the handling specialist Jonas & Redmann has developed different gripper technologies that are particularly gentle to surfaces, some of which can perform several functions simultaneously.

      A number of test stations ensure constant quality control. For example, in order to contact various product types, a cell was developed which not only ensures precise handling of the pre-installed WLC device, but which also approaches contact points that differ from product to product with high accuracy. A robot cell with image recognition and integrated laser marking performs a final pin check. Furthermore, the large number of product variants requires production systems which can be refitted and retrofitted quickly and easily. Simple, compact mechanics and pivot mechanisms ensure that the operator can change parts easily.

      Automation from a single source

      Another customer requirement was to set up the machine with control and drive technology from Siemens. The brains of the production line is the PC-based software S7-1500 software controller, which communicates with the independent module cells. The software controller has the advantage of running completely independent of Windows. A Windows reboot or crash thus no longer influences the execution of the control program. The use of PC-based automation also allows a consistently compact and modular design of the WLC production line.  The system, which is cost effective and low-maintenance, can be expanded easily in the future (software and HMI), without changing the existing foundation.

      Clear visualization for maximum ease of use

      The user interface was created using the visualization software TIA Portal WinCC V13 and guides the operator with maximum usability through all process steps. Graphical illustrations of the individual modules and a module selection with function text ensure easy orientation for the operator. Process parameters that are taught once are stored as a record and can be accessed again as needed. Quality-relevant data can be recorded in definable depth and, thanks to a modular information system and project-oriented process diagram, can be easily retrieved, including mobile via email or SMS.

      In conclusion, the Jonas & Redmann module cell concept reliably guarantees the required high degree of variant and volume flexibility to Novero Laird Business. Plant capacity can be scaled across multiple investments in small increments.

      The versatile ModuleCell for an extended service life

      The Jonas & Redmann modular kit enables standardised module cells in different construction sizes to be designed quickly. Combined with a large number of standardised automation components, customer-specific processing and mounting tasks can be converted into modern systems technology within a very short period of time.

      A tool carrier transport system links the self-sufficient module cells and turns them into complete mounting systems. In this way, as many functions as required can be implemented one after the other through successive sequencing. The type of tool carrier and the degree of automation or linkage can be selected by the customer as required, depending on the piece number to be produced. When piece numbers during the product launch stage are low, or when there is a high degree of partial flexibility, manual jobs with a low degree of automation and investment can be created. If higher piece numbers are required during the product life cycle, the modules can be extended to create an automated mounting system. Individual modules can easily be added or removed since each module is fitted with its own control system.

      The innovative GR01 and GL01 basic machines

      Jonas & Redmann also continue to offer the GR01 rotary indexing module and the GL01 linear module in different sizes for small to medium-sized components and high cycle outputs. The cost-efficient, compact Jonas & Redmann GR01 is based on a highly flexible approach with regard to scale, the handling path and handling period. What is new here is the use of a rotary indexing machine with a special “cam disc”. Instead of being controlled via a mechanical cam disc, the system is controlled via an electrical (‘virtual’) one. The concept combines the advantage of a mechanical curve with the advantage of the flexibility offered by electrical axes. It also stands out for the use of high-quality, tried and tested individual components, through its durability and very high technical availability, and in this way reduces maintenance costs considerably. Modules of this type are the system of choice with fast, overlapping movement sequences. The GR01 enables a cycle output of 60 cycles/min with simple processing. Through multiple processing, the system output can be increased accordingly.
      In principle, the Jonas & Redmann GL01 offers the same development approach. The linear system is designed for larger components and a considerably greater number of workstations. The GL01 is generally available in three module sizes, which can be connected to each other via decoupling modules.
      Both systems, the GR01 and GL01, bring together all processing-specific advantages of a special machine and the advantages of flexible production cells that are quick to modify. In this way, the specific degrees of automation in each case, as well as fluctuations in variant and piece numbers, can be efficiently managed throughout the life cycle of a product.

      Production of lithium-ion batteries – Precision and reproducible deep drawing of composite foils

      Jonas & Redmann developed a precision, flexible R&D system for the reproducible deep drawing of composite foils, e.g. aluminium composite foils. The (stand-alone) laboratory machine offers an array of process modes and optional expansions.

      Benefits at a glance:

      After a short introduction, Jonas & Redmann laboratory systems can be commissioned in just a few easy steps and are easy to operate.

      All Jonas & Redmann laboratory systems are low-maintenance and pre-calibrated.
      High-precision system components produce reproducible test results.

      System options enable the evaluation of a wide range of process parameters as a basis for scaling up or optimising existing processes, for example.

      Thanks to its compact, modular design equipped with rollers, the system is easy to handle in laboratory environments.

      In contrast to hard case battery cells, foil cells (also coffee bag or pouch cells) made of aluminium composite foils offer advantages when it comes to gravimetric energy density as well as a high degree of battery format flexibility thanks to the relatively easy processability of the housing materials.
      Depending on the specification, the pouch cell must be deep-drawed into varying shapes. The quality of the deep drawing process has a direct impact on the parameters life cycle (at the cell and system level) and safety. To implement an industrialised, stable and high-quality deep drawing process, the largely unknown behaviour of multiple layer composite foils in deep drawing processes must be evaluated in prototype and material testing and examinations on the optimum parameter settings of the forces applied to the blank.
      Jonas & Redmann offers a semi-automatic, modular laboratory system for these tasks. The new development is suitable for universities and research institutes as well as companies for evaluating production and process parameters.

      Flexible and scalable

      The easy-to-use, scalable laboratory system offers a wide range of functions. Optional expansions offer flexible options for using the machine in product development.
      The control has a open design, thus enabling customer-specific integration and an expansion of the functions and sensors. The depth (distance), deep drawing force (forming force), deep drawing speed (forming speed), blank-holder force and holding time parameters are freely programmable.
      The drawing punch, draw ring and blank holding device can be optionally set to a defined temperature (room temperature up to 120°C) by the integrated heating elements.
      The optional punching tool (hole punch) makes it possible to index deep-drawed half shells. Two half shells can be aligned using these indexing holes when assembling battery cells.
      Similar to the drawing punch, a servo-electric spindle press can be mounted instead of a pneumatic drive. This increases precision and allows for additional deep drawing operating modes.
      In addition, the standard system repeatability of <1% of full scale (nominal load) can be optionally reduced to <0.3% of full scale.

      User friendly and low-maintenance

      The compact system is operated using a mobile control panel with a touchscreen, which makes it easy to operate and display operating and fault messages. The process parameters are entered and recipes are created by an external PC or the operating personnel. The control writes the various machine process parameters cyclically (including the time stamp) to a single data file. The interval for each parameter – within the limit defined by the system – is freely programmable via the HMI.

      Innovation by cooperation

      Jonas & Redmann considers the entire process chain of broad basic research and applied research, including the development of prototypes in the system context, and cooperates with scientific partners particularly in the field of battery production. By working with research institutes such as the “Battery LabFactory Braunschweig” (BLB), it is possible to efficiently develop products and production technologies with equal efficiency. Alexander Tornow, graduate engineer at the Institute of Machine Tools and Production Technology (IWF) at the Technische Universität Braunschweig stresses in this context: “The laboratory deep drawing system from Jonas & Redmann, which is used in the Battery LabFactory, is an excellent example of the transfer of scientific knowledge to optimize research facilities.”

      A precise and flexible laser welder automates the assembly of prismatic lithium-ion cells to battery packs and makes the process reliable, reproducible, efficient and cost-effective. Both the mechanics and the control and drive technology can be adapted to different production tasks.

      The advantage in experience of Asian companies in the development and manufacturing of consumer lithium-ion cells has ultimately meant that the majority of local battery manufacturers do not develop their own capacity. The majority of European automobile companies and their system suppliers are currently more focused on follow-up processes. Common practice is to procure finished battery cells and then to assemble these into battery packs. Anyone wishing to produce the expected increasing quantity at the highest quality and competitive cost must automate assembly and develop a stable, reproducible and cost-effective process.

      Jonas & Redmann has developed an automatic laser welder for joining tabs of prismatic cells which exactly fulfills these requirements. The machine can be used flexibly for various welding tasks in product development and is equally suited for production at an industrial scale. For pure serial production, the approach can be further simplified and optimized.

      Fine, secure and low-loss – laser welding preferred

      Laser welding enables extremely fine, permanently secure and low (electrical) loss joints, which has been confirmed in advance tests. The intended primary application – welding many thin aluminum and copper tabs – requires a high-performance laser system with extremely precise focus. In particular, the welding depth must be reproducibly adjustable to within a few micrometers so that only the desired material layers are welded. Jonas & Redmann implemented this with a 6 kW fiber laser with a spot diameter of 140 µm.

      Precise, dynamic and flexible – a mechanism with many degrees of freedom

      The mechanism must be correspondingly stiff and precise, and the laser head must be flexibly and dynamically positionable within the workspace (±440 mm (X) / ±540 mm (Y) / ±150 mm (Z)). The laser head is mounted on a gantry, is servomotor driven in three axes, and can be swiveled by ±30° in the direction of transport. This means that every point in the workspace can be reached by the laser head with a precision of ±0.02 mm. The laser optics have their own control mechanism and can be NC driven in three axes. With this, high-precision elevation profiles can be mapped, whereby the welding depth can be exactly and reproducibly controlled using both the speed of travel and laser power.

      Heraeus Medical from Wehrheim commissioned Jonas & Redmann with the design and production of a bottling line for the product bone cement Palacos R + G pro.

      The special machine, specially designed for mounting, filling and laser marking the Palacos R + G pro applicator, integrates seamlessly into the overall line. Thanks to the high dosing accuracy, the application systems can be filled exactly and assembled with the highest quality. Reliable and economical product labeling is provided by an integrated CO2 laser labeller.

      Dr. Britta Bär, Head of Supply Chain Management & Production Heraeus Medical: “By investing in a new production line, we are meeting the growing demand for our bone cement. Jonas & Redmann is a specialist in the automation of filling processes with many years of experience. We were very professionally advised and supported by the Berliners in the conception phase. That is why we have awarded Jonas & Redmann the contract for the realization of the plant. We are happy about the good partnership. “

      Vehicles are increasingly a part of their networked environment. E-mobility, autonomous driving and Car2X are transforming efficient data exchange in the car and over the Internet into a central vehicle component. Over the next five years, it is estimated that there will be a quarter of billion networked cars on the road around the world, a gigantic growth market. With these new scenarios, the demands placed on connectivity hardware are growing.

      The company Laid (initially Novero) specializes in the integration of mobile devices in vehicles. The subsidiary of the technology provider Laird develops and manufactures innovative solutions for vehicle communication. As an addition to wireless charging for different types of mobile phones, the Berlin-based company offers a groundbreaking solution through which the mobile device can also be electromagnetically coupled to the internal vehicle antennas.

      Scalable modular cell concept for efficient multi-variant production 

      The company selected Jonas & Redmann to implement a combination of fully and semi-automated mix-model production in Dabendorf, Germany.

      As innovative as the product is, the customer-specified plant design is equally challenging. For this mix-model production, in which demand for individual product models and variants can quickly change, utilization and deliverability are critical parameters of system design. In order to react quickly to changing market requirements, the line must provide maximum flexibility.

      To produce up to seven product variants, Jonas & Redmann designed a line comprising self-sufficient modular cells , which are connected via a workpiece carrier system. The standard module cells were integrated with a number of different customer-specific, complex pick and place applications, as well as various press, screw and laser processes. For this production line, the handling specialist Jonas & Redmann has developed different gripper technologies that are particularly gentle to surfaces, some of which can perform several functions simultaneously.

      A number of test stations ensure constant quality control. For example, in order to contact various product types, a cell was developed which not only ensures precise handling of the pre-installed WLC device, but which also approaches contact points that differ from product to product with high accuracy. A robot cell with image recognition and integrated laser marking performs a final pin check. Furthermore, the large number of product variants requires production systems which can be refitted and retrofitted quickly and easily. Simple, compact mechanics and pivot mechanisms ensure that the operator can change parts easily.

      Automation from a single source

      Another customer requirement was to set up the machine with control and drive technology from Siemens. The brains of the production line is the PC-based software S7-1500 software controller, which communicates with the independent module cells. The software controller has the advantage of running completely independent of Windows. A Windows reboot or crash thus no longer influences the execution of the control program. The use of PC-based automation also allows a consistently compact and modular design of the WLC production line.  The system, which is cost effective and low-maintenance, can be expanded easily in the future (software and HMI), without changing the existing foundation.

      Clear visualization for maximum ease of use

      The user interface was created using the visualization software TIA Portal WinCC V13 and guides the operator with maximum usability through all process steps. Graphical illustrations of the individual modules and a module selection with function text ensure easy orientation for the operator. Process parameters that are taught once are stored as a record and can be accessed again as needed. Quality-relevant data can be recorded in definable depth and, thanks to a modular information system and project-oriented process diagram, can be easily retrieved, including mobile via email or SMS.

      In conclusion, the Jonas & Redmann module cell concept reliably guarantees the required high degree of variant and volume flexibility to Novero Laird Business. Plant capacity can be scaled across multiple investments in small increments.

      The versatile ModuleCell for an extended service life

      The Jonas & Redmann modular kit enables standardised module cells in different construction sizes to be designed quickly. Combined with a large number of standardised automation components, customer-specific processing and mounting tasks can be converted into modern systems technology within a very short period of time.

      A tool carrier transport system links the self-sufficient module cells and turns them into complete mounting systems. In this way, as many functions as required can be implemented one after the other through successive sequencing. The type of tool carrier and the degree of automation or linkage can be selected by the customer as required, depending on the piece number to be produced. When piece numbers during the product launch stage are low, or when there is a high degree of partial flexibility, manual jobs with a low degree of automation and investment can be created. If higher piece numbers are required during the product life cycle, the modules can be extended to create an automated mounting system. Individual modules can easily be added or removed since each module is fitted with its own control system.

      The innovative GR01 and GL01 basic machines

      Jonas & Redmann also continue to offer the GR01 rotary indexing module and the GL01 linear module in different sizes for small to medium-sized components and high cycle outputs. The cost-efficient, compact Jonas & Redmann GR01 is based on a highly flexible approach with regard to scale, the handling path and handling period. What is new here is the use of a rotary indexing machine with a special “cam disc”. Instead of being controlled via a mechanical cam disc, the system is controlled via an electrical (‘virtual’) one. The concept combines the advantage of a mechanical curve with the advantage of the flexibility offered by electrical axes. It also stands out for the use of high-quality, tried and tested individual components, through its durability and very high technical availability, and in this way reduces maintenance costs considerably. Modules of this type are the system of choice with fast, overlapping movement sequences. The GR01 enables a cycle output of 60 cycles/min with simple processing. Through multiple processing, the system output can be increased accordingly.
      In principle, the Jonas & Redmann GL01 offers the same development approach. The linear system is designed for larger components and a considerably greater number of workstations. The GL01 is generally available in three module sizes, which can be connected to each other via decoupling modules.
      Both systems, the GR01 and GL01, bring together all processing-specific advantages of a special machine and the advantages of flexible production cells that are quick to modify. In this way, the specific degrees of automation in each case, as well as fluctuations in variant and piece numbers, can be efficiently managed throughout the life cycle of a product.

      Production of lithium-ion batteries – Precision and reproducible deep drawing of composite foils

      Jonas & Redmann developed a precision, flexible R&D system for the reproducible deep drawing of composite foils, e.g. aluminium composite foils. The (stand-alone) laboratory machine offers an array of process modes and optional expansions.

      Benefits at a glance:

      After a short introduction, Jonas & Redmann laboratory systems can be commissioned in just a few easy steps and are easy to operate.

      All Jonas & Redmann laboratory systems are low-maintenance and pre-calibrated.
      High-precision system components produce reproducible test results.

      System options enable the evaluation of a wide range of process parameters as a basis for scaling up or optimising existing processes, for example.

      Thanks to its compact, modular design equipped with rollers, the system is easy to handle in laboratory environments.

      In contrast to hard case battery cells, foil cells (also coffee bag or pouch cells) made of aluminium composite foils offer advantages when it comes to gravimetric energy density as well as a high degree of battery format flexibility thanks to the relatively easy processability of the housing materials.
      Depending on the specification, the pouch cell must be deep-drawed into varying shapes. The quality of the deep drawing process has a direct impact on the parameters life cycle (at the cell and system level) and safety. To implement an industrialised, stable and high-quality deep drawing process, the largely unknown behaviour of multiple layer composite foils in deep drawing processes must be evaluated in prototype and material testing and examinations on the optimum parameter settings of the forces applied to the blank.
      Jonas & Redmann offers a semi-automatic, modular laboratory system for these tasks. The new development is suitable for universities and research institutes as well as companies for evaluating production and process parameters.

      Flexible and scalable

      The easy-to-use, scalable laboratory system offers a wide range of functions. Optional expansions offer flexible options for using the machine in product development.
      The control has a open design, thus enabling customer-specific integration and an expansion of the functions and sensors. The depth (distance), deep drawing force (forming force), deep drawing speed (forming speed), blank-holder force and holding time parameters are freely programmable.
      The drawing punch, draw ring and blank holding device can be optionally set to a defined temperature (room temperature up to 120°C) by the integrated heating elements.
      The optional punching tool (hole punch) makes it possible to index deep-drawed half shells. Two half shells can be aligned using these indexing holes when assembling battery cells.
      Similar to the drawing punch, a servo-electric spindle press can be mounted instead of a pneumatic drive. This increases precision and allows for additional deep drawing operating modes.
      In addition, the standard system repeatability of <1% of full scale (nominal load) can be optionally reduced to <0.3% of full scale.

      User friendly and low-maintenance

      The compact system is operated using a mobile control panel with a touchscreen, which makes it easy to operate and display operating and fault messages. The process parameters are entered and recipes are created by an external PC or the operating personnel. The control writes the various machine process parameters cyclically (including the time stamp) to a single data file. The interval for each parameter – within the limit defined by the system – is freely programmable via the HMI.

      Innovation by cooperation

      Jonas & Redmann considers the entire process chain of broad basic research and applied research, including the development of prototypes in the system context, and cooperates with scientific partners particularly in the field of battery production. By working with research institutes such as the “Battery LabFactory Braunschweig” (BLB), it is possible to efficiently develop products and production technologies with equal efficiency. Alexander Tornow, graduate engineer at the Institute of Machine Tools and Production Technology (IWF) at the Technische Universität Braunschweig stresses in this context: “The laboratory deep drawing system from Jonas & Redmann, which is used in the Battery LabFactory, is an excellent example of the transfer of scientific knowledge to optimize research facilities.”

      A precise and flexible laser welder automates the assembly of prismatic lithium-ion cells to battery packs and makes the process reliable, reproducible, efficient and cost-effective. Both the mechanics and the control and drive technology can be adapted to different production tasks.

      The advantage in experience of Asian companies in the development and manufacturing of consumer lithium-ion cells has ultimately meant that the majority of local battery manufacturers do not develop their own capacity. The majority of European automobile companies and their system suppliers are currently more focused on follow-up processes. Common practice is to procure finished battery cells and then to assemble these into battery packs. Anyone wishing to produce the expected increasing quantity at the highest quality and competitive cost must automate assembly and develop a stable, reproducible and cost-effective process.

      Jonas & Redmann has developed an automatic laser welder for joining tabs of prismatic cells which exactly fulfills these requirements. The machine can be used flexibly for various welding tasks in product development and is equally suited for production at an industrial scale. For pure serial production, the approach can be further simplified and optimized.

      Fine, secure and low-loss – laser welding preferred

      Laser welding enables extremely fine, permanently secure and low (electrical) loss joints, which has been confirmed in advance tests. The intended primary application – welding many thin aluminum and copper tabs – requires a high-performance laser system with extremely precise focus. In particular, the welding depth must be reproducibly adjustable to within a few micrometers so that only the desired material layers are welded. Jonas & Redmann implemented this with a 6 kW fiber laser with a spot diameter of 140 µm.

      Precise, dynamic and flexible – a mechanism with many degrees of freedom

      The mechanism must be correspondingly stiff and precise, and the laser head must be flexibly and dynamically positionable within the workspace (±440 mm (X) / ±540 mm (Y) / ±150 mm (Z)). The laser head is mounted on a gantry, is servomotor driven in three axes, and can be swiveled by ±30° in the direction of transport. This means that every point in the workspace can be reached by the laser head with a precision of ±0.02 mm. The laser optics have their own control mechanism and can be NC driven in three axes. With this, high-precision elevation profiles can be mapped, whereby the welding depth can be exactly and reproducibly controlled using both the speed of travel and laser power.
