The production of electric vehicles places new demands on production technology. moreAn economical production of battery cells and packages is an important factor for this market to grow successfully. A high level of automation, such as that already found today in engine production, is essential for this. The race for the best production technology has already begun. The Zimmer Group is the development and system partner of many well-known premium manufacturers in battery manufacturing, module assembly and electric motor manufacturing.
The specialists of the Zimmer Group master all the disciplines of automation with their enormous knowledge and experience gained over the years: morefrom sand core handling in the foundry, die casting, casting cleaning, high pressure deburring or forging to the machining and assembly of complex components – in assemblies or directly in the vehicle.
Today‘s automation no longer has anything to do with pure robotics. Nowadays, modern systems communicate with the worker over the Internet, changing devices and tools fully automatically every second.
Whether turning, grinding, milling or honing – automation plays an ever-increasing role. It is increasingly integrated into the machine design. With its system solutions, the Zimmer Group offers a space-saving design for automation on the machine or for accommodation in the workroom. Of course, taking into account the respective environmental conditions, e.g. a sealing of all components against chips, dust and moisture. For many decades, our systems have been proving their worth at the leading automobile manufacturers in daily use worldwide.

Based on a virtual image, the Digital Twin, we design and realize complete manufacturing and assembly cells with maximum flexibility. moreThe basis for these innovative machine concepts is a highly flexible, scalable transport module for workpiece transport. Individually and independently controllable transport units (shuttles) make a rigid coupling of the transport by a conveyor belt unnecessary. Depending on the requirements, an extremely agile and highly dynamic transport cycle without length limitation can be set up with any number of shuttles.
