American Battery Factory (ABF), a manufacturer of lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery cells, will implement Honeywell process automation and safety solutions in a new gigafactory located in Tucson, Arizona; as reported by the company itself.
When it was over, This facility is the largest LFP battery cell production gigafactory in the United States. with almost 200,000 square meters. Energy storage systems made from ABF’s battery cell production can be used in homes, businesses and equipment, allowing them to optimize the use of energy from the grid or their own systems.
The gigafactory in Arizona will integrate Honeywell’s Manufacturing Excellence Platform, Experion Batch, and Integrated Remote Operations to help ABF optimize its manufacturing process and workflow.. Honeywell solutions will allow ABF to visualize and control its battery manufacturing process in real time, from mixing, coating and assembly to storage and distribution. Honeywell technologies will streamline and improve operational data collection, while gathering information about upcoming tasks or potential delays for operators. The results: improved yield, reduced waste and more cost-effective and energy-efficient battery manufacturing.
John Kem, president of American Battery Factory, stated that they will be able to “quickly and effectively establish a sustainable foundation for our network of gigafactories using Honeywell’s unique tools and technology. This partnership marks significant progress in our goal of providing the nation with American-made lithium iron phosphate batteries, which are critical to meeting federal and state climate change initiatives and safety requirements. . national for products made in the USA.
Chad Briggs, vice-president and general director of Projects and Automation Solutions at Honeywell Process Solutions, stated that “Honeywell is playing an important role in the growth of the American Battery Factory with our innovative solutions. “Our approach to automation and process controls will change how the gigafactories of the future operate through helping to increase battery production and reduce energy consumption.”
American Battery Factory Inc. develops the first network of safe LFP battery gigafactories in the United States and aims to implement Honeywell’s end-to-end solutions throughout the process. The company is dedicated to making energy independence and renewable energy a reality in the United States by creating a national battery supply chain. In addition to creating domestic jobs, ABF plays a key role in meeting federal and state climate change initiatives and “Made-in-USA” national security requirements.
