Factory & Technology

As a leader in energy storage solutions, Nilar’s focus is ensuring that every product leaving our factory meets the highest standards. Nilar puts significant investment in research & development as well as in our manufacturing facilities. All steps in our production process are performed at our state-of-the-art factory in Gävle, Sweden.

These are the steps that take raw material into fully assembled energy storage systems. Keep reading to find out how each step is performed and learn about how your energy storage is created with utmost quality in mind.

Electrode manufacturing

The ingredients of our electrodes are combined in exact concentrations to make the active material. This active material is then pressed onto a scrim to create either the positive or negative electrode. The process is very simple and requires no heat treatment or similar.

Automated module assembly

The electrodes are carefully weighed and paired together inside a casing with a separator in between, this is the so called battery cell. The battery cells are then stacked in top of each other with conducting biplates in between and finally enclosed in a laser welded casing. The battery module is now assembled.

Laser welding

Each module is laser welded together, making sure that the contents are completely contained from the environment. This process utilizes the different transparencies of the module casing. The laser is able to pass through one side of the module and heat up the other, creating a weld between the two sides.

Battery pack assembly

By stacking multiple battery modules the pack can be created with different voltages, where more modules means a higher voltage. The packs are compressed and bound together with steel bands.

System assembly and test

Systems going out to our customers are assembled and tested in our testing facilities before shipment. This ensures that your energy storage leaves our factory with the highest of quality.
