industrial Revolution marked before and after in the history of mankind, being a Period of technological and scientific innovation, which boosted productivity at the same time. For this reason, factories are portrayed as generators of jobs, products and/or services. decades apart industrial areas continue changing its manufacturing centers on the impulse of Industry 4.0 supported Digitization, Automation and Information TechnologyThose who wish to increase yields and efficiency without neglecting the environment.
is the case of automotive segment that he’s making his switch from assembling internal combustion cars zero emission electric vehicleBringing a revolution in building new manufacturing plants that meet the needs of the market.
american company Tesla – led by Elon Musk-, is leading in this path with the creation of ‘Gigafactories’While most manufacturing takes years to complete, a lithium-ion battery factory can be built in a matter of months.
Construction of the first plant of this type began in June 2014 in Nevada, United States. Since then, the American company has built in New York, China, Germany and Texas. In addition, it was recently revealed that the company is likely to invest up to $1 billion to build such a manufacturing complex in Mexico.
from the creation of gigafactoryLargely focused on manufacturing batteries for electric cars, the brand has a mission to accelerate the world’s transition sustainable energy Through of electric vehicles and energy products cheap fast.
To increase production to 500,000 cars per year, only Tesla will need a supply of lithium ion batteries, These plants have arisen out of necessity and will supply enough batteries to meet demand estimated vehicle from automobile company.
Currently, the Gigafabrica Produces electric motors and battery packs, as well as energy storage products Tesla, powerwall why electric folding,
With the increase in production of gigafactorycost of battery cells Tesla Through economies of scale, innovative manufacturing, waste reduction, and simple optimization of bringing most manufacturing processes under one roof, waste will be significantly reduced.
By reducing the cost of batteries, the brand is able to bring its products to a greater number of people, allowing us to make the biggest possible impact in changing the world sustainable energy,
Gigafactory a word that began to be used TeslaAlmost nine years of this new production model, the fact that the automotive industry feeds on Batteries and Alternative Energy Sources is a reality. That’s all, what other players like Volkswagen, bmw, seat hey Nissan They have set up million-dollar investments to build their own plants with this concept.
in electric vehicles is talking about kW As a unit of energy storage capacity. And this unit is not only used in batteries, but also talks about the size of factories.
A Gigafactory There is a battery factory for electric cars with a total production capacity of more than GWh, although this condition is not required to be met.
A Gigafabrica The batteries not only manufacture batteries for electric cars, they are also a center specializing in the recycling of components. In some cases they are recycled giving a second life, while in other cases alternatives are made Reduce environmental impact of battery assembly for electric vehicles.
