The Challenge

Welding is challenging. It’s hard to inspect failures. Welds must be done in a consistent, repeatable process. Stack them too fast, and the packs do not line up.

The Customer
About The Customer

Automotive manufacturer.

The Solution

A strong weld creates an efficient charge and discharge of the battery. A high-quality weld can prolong the battery’s life and withstand crashes. ATS spent 3-years developing this unique approach for GM, that accurately detects and validate the welds.

Operational Impact
  • [Product Improvement - Brand Image]

    With ATS as a trusted partner, GM’s Factory ZERO can adapt to market demands and design evolutions, securing GM’s market position today and in the future. ATS’s automation processes have placed GM is in a position to surpass other EV manufacturers on the market.

Quantitative Benefit
  • This leading-edge linear motion system increases throughput while reducing footprint and energy consumption, thanks to its integrated functionality. GM was able to gain a 50% improvement in floor efficiency, maintaining their project schedule, and keeping to a budget.

  • By reducing any opportunity for a weld failure, ATS optimized welding efficiency by 30% for GM, creating a reliable and repeatable welding process.
