BATTERY PACK FACTORY GUIDE

That I Only Share With Entrepreneur

With the gradual implementation of global policies related to reducing carbon emissions, new energy lithium batteries have occupied many important markets as the main force in the green industry. At present, from the layout of the industrial chain, lithium batteries have already involved in the high, medium and low end markets. From the perspective of technology, we are constantly making breakthroughs to the limit performance of materials, and products that are more in line with the needs are derived.

In 2003, I first came into contact with a power bank project. At that time, the power bank were represented by lead-acid batteries, and were represented by 18650 batteries later. In that few years, I realized the important trend in the development of lithium batteries. Since 2006, I have successively carried 6 lithium battery projects, including power bank, starter battery, RC battery, low speed car battery, audio battery and energy storage battery projects, successful cooperation with OPPO, Anker and other famous brands. As a practitioner who has deeply devoted to the new energy lithium battery industry for many years, I’d like to make the following suggestions to new practitioners in 2022:If you have suitable sales channels, you can choose to be an agent or distributor of the battery factory. If you want to start a business with small capital, you can source battery cells directly and assemble them into battery packs for sale. And if you are lucky to have sufficient funds, it’s encouraged to build your own factory of cells manufacturing and battery pack assembly.

Till now, the lithium battery assembly industry is still in the blue ocean with considerable profits. When opening a lithium battery assembly factory, the core issue is the source of the battery cells. Please do not invest in any equipment until you have figured out how to purchase high quality cells. What you have to do first is to learn the basic knowledge of lithium battery assembly, and then participate in national industry exhibitions regularly, make friends with manufacturers and peers, and find reliable sources of supply. In this guide, you will be provided with the solutions of building a battery pack assembly factory.

1. Factory Area

1.Small-scale or workshop-style factories do not require too much area, but factors such as turnover and safety must also be considered when separating regions.

2.The most basic regional planning of PACK factory includes: production workshop, material warehouse, battery cell warehouse, finished product warehouse, aging room, office, toilet, etc. Even if we build a tin shed, it should be separated to be safer. Warehouses for cells and finished battery packs can be combined together, be sure to mark clearly for identification. The office and material warehouse can be merged with the production workshop according to actual needs, and other regions are suggested to be reserved. That is to say, the utmost possible combination must includes such four regions as warehouse (cells and finished products combined), aging room, production workshop (raw material warehouse and office are combined into workshop), and toilets, forming a three-bedroom, two-hall, and two-bathroom pattern;

3.The basic rules table of factory area and capacity matching 

ItemAreaCategoryCapacityStaffingProduction LinesRemark
1Above 300㎡Motivity,ESS10-355A flat beltt assembly lineSales excluded

Remarks:
1. The options of overstocked inventory must be excluded, requiring fast turnover, quick delivery of small orders, etc.;
2. The production capacity can be decided by product craft and product size;
3. The above staffing refers to technicians and employees.

2. Factory Configuration

1. The configuration is defined by a small-scale PACK factory, and the personnel is around 3-5 people.

2. PACK factory configuration list according to the basic standard

Mode 1: Strong self-sufficiency, and minimum level of external dependence

Mode 2: The reduced configuration mode is as follows, but relatively high level of external dependence, most of which need to be completed by outsourcing, and require extremely delicate craft and precise design.

3. Process Specification Of Battery Pack

Remarks: There are some degrees of differences in the process based on different products, but they are basically the same.

1. The configuration is defined by a small-scale PACK factory, and the personnel is around 3-5 people.

2. PACK factory configuration list according to the basic standard

4. Employee Training And Operation Safety And Production Safety, Management Scheme And Various Files.

Remarks: There are some degrees of differences in the process based on different products, but they are basically the same.

1. When opening a PACK factory, operation safety is the primary factor, and a safe production environment is something we must make a good plan in every step of the way. Based on the relatively vacant situation of the PACK factory, we must start planning from the most basic level when we output data.

2.List of output softwares

Remarks:
1. The requirements and applicability of the above data depend on the factory's own decision, it is the normative record data to maintain the minimum demand mode.
2. We regard fixed assets as hardware, then management system, process, craft technical data, samples, reports, etc. are regarded as software.
