“This solution is vital in our manufacturing operation,” says John Kem, President of American Battery Factory

Honeywell has announced the launch of its Battery Manufacturing Excellence Platform (Battery MXP), an AI-powered software solution designed to optimize gigafactory operations.

As reported by Honeywell, this platform aims to improve battery cell yields and expedite facility startups.

Traditional battery manufacturing processes often result in material scrap rates as high as 30%.

Battery MXP integrates AI to detect and remedy quality issues before they lead to material waste.

This machine learning-driven solution transforms data into actionable insights to enhance efficiency and productivity.

Reducing scrap rates and increasing efficiency

Battery MXP is engineered to significantly reduce startup material scrap rates by 60% and increase production rates.

This improvement is crucial for meeting the growing demand for lithium-based batteries.

The platform offers powerful data to improve quality control and decision-making on the plant floor.

John Kem, president of American Battery Factory, commented on the impact of Battery MXP: “With Honeywell’s Battery MXP and its automation capabilities, we will be able to quickly and effectively establish a foundation for our network of gigafactories.

“This solution is vital in our manufacturing operation because it allows us to reduce scrap and scale up quickly, while also ensuring we meet the U.S. and international demand for high-quality lithium iron phosphate batteries as we prepare for the unprecedented surge expected over the next decade.”

Enhancing safety and traceability

Battery MXP offers bidirectional traceability, tracking battery cells from raw materials to finished products in real time.

This feature ensures product quality at every step of the manufacturing process.

Additionally, the solution addresses key challenges such as process controls, workforce management, and thermal runaway battery fire prevention, enhancing safety for both operators and end-users.

Pramesh Maheshwari, President of Honeywell Process Solutions, stated: “The electrification of everyday life continues to increase global demand for quality lithium-ion batteries to power electric vehicles, consumer electronics, and battery energy storage systems.

“With the construction of more than 400 gigafactories planned worldwide by 2030, Honeywell’s Battery MXP is a crucial technology that enables manufacturers to maximize cell yields and reach peak production much quicker than traditional methods.”

Aligning with global energy transition

Honeywell’s automation and energy transition portfolio supports the global shift towards electrification.

The company’s expertise in industrial automation, cyber-secure IoT, material handling, building automation, and safety solutions helps battery manufacturers meet the projected demand for reliable battery cells.

Honeywell’s Battery MXP is positioned as a key technology in the global energy transition, providing solutions that advance the electrification journey.
