The project led by Cegasa Portable Energy, involving companies that provide solutions in the field of electronics and mould injection, as well as end user companies, began its trajectory in 2016 in the Hazitek programme of the Basque Government. During the initial phase, the process of defining requirements has been successfully completed, both for batteries and for the assembly line in which they will be produced. Currently, the R&D department of Mondragon Assembly, based on its own R&D unit, Koniker, is completing the design of the critical equipment of the process. The construction of the equipment is planned for mid-2017, which, after internal validation, will be installed in Cegasa for validation under real production conditions.

The lithium-ion battery market is expected to experience sustained growth driven by both the mobility sector and by large-scale stationary storage to accommodate the increasing inputs of renewable energies into electricity grids. Mondragon Assembly anticipates that this growth should involve investments in automated equipment and that, therefore, they can assume a new line of business in the medium term.

Thus, Mondragon Assembly completes its range of solutions for the renewable energy and storage sector, contributing to the decarbonisation of the environment and to a sustainable development.

Mondragon Assembly France has recently delivered a fully automatic line for the finishing and testing of ball bearings.

The new installation includes three independent stations with their entry and exit loading and unloading lines, all of them fully linked. Within the operations carried out in the line, some of them can be particularly emphasized: verification of the quality of the bearing via sonic technology, laser tracking and marking of the bearing and inner clearance control down to micron precision. Also, several finishing components are assembled to the bearing.

MONDRAGON ASSEMBLY is present in France since 1994, being nowadays a key reference in the field of automatic assembly and industrial automation. The Company supplies automatic assembly lines to all the main components manufacturers all over the world.

Mondragon Assembly has obtained a new Global Project from one of the leading auto parts manufacturers for the design and development of an automatic cell for assembly and test of a coolant tank. The project consists of two independent cells that will be manufactured and installed simultaneously in Mexico and China during the first half of 2017. “This is a new step forwards in our strategy of working together with our customers on global projects, based on our 40 years of experience and our global presence, with consolidated plants in China, Mexico, Germany, Spain, France and Brazil, as well as the opening of our new company in India”, says our Chief Executive Officer Luis Mari Imaz.

Mondragon Assembly has been awarded by one of the most important Automotive Components Supplier all over the world as a global supplier of its new automatic assembly lines. These lines will assemble control devices for the automobile industry.  As a result of this contract, several lines will be installed in Europe, North America and Asia. The very first line, this year, will be delivered to Mexico. These systems include an ample use of robotics, advanced laser tracking and marking units, qualitative vision control, automatic sealing control, laser welding, full safety devices and a powerful computer control aimed to monitor and control the line as well as allowing data integration of the lines with the global management system of the Company.

Mondragon Assembly provides a high added value to its Customers as it adds to its advanced technical skills a global presence with facilities in Spain, France, Germany, Mexico, China, Brazil and India, offering a full service, standard and close in most of the world.

Mondragon Assembly has supplied a fully automated 200 MW turnkey line to the prestigious Indian company Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL), which manufactures photovoltaic modules, among many other products. The line is based in Bangalore.

The line is equipped with the most advanced technology on the market, with a production capacity of 120 modules per hour.

The opening event was attended by Minister of Heavy Industries and Public Companies, Mr Anant Geete.

With this delivery, Mondragon Assembly consolidates its position in the Indian market, offering technical and commercial support through its subsidiary Mondragon Assembly India Pty Ltd.

Mondragon’s leading automated solution for photovoltaic applications has developed a Front Line with an annual production capacity of 150 MW.

Due to the decrease in raw material costs, photovoltaic energy has become one of the cheapest energy sources in the market, having achieved an exponential growth in recent years.

In light of this growth, module manufacturers increasingly require higher production lines with higher degrees of automation, which is why Mondragon Assembly has developed the most modern Front Line in the market.

The Front Line consists of two MTS 2500 tabbers and stringers and an IC150 interconnect system.  This Front Line is designed to manufacture panels with cells of up to 6 buses.

Tabber MTS 2500

The MTS 2500 tabber and stringer allows a net production capacity of 2400 cells per hour in a single welding track, making it the fastest in the market. In addition to its production capacity, it is also notable for its size, as it only requires 7.5 m2. It thus allows the installation of high-production lines in smaller areas.

IC150

As the number of busbars in the photovoltaic cells increases, the bussing, or interconnected welding process, becomes a bottleneck in many production chains.  Mondragon Assembly’s IC150 allows module manufacturers to increase the production rate while ensuring the product quality at all times.

The year 2017 stands out as a historic year for Mondragon Assembly’s solar business, as it will supply turnkey lines with a cumulative production capacity of over 1 Gw, consolidating itself as a worldwide reference in this type of solution.

The projects are spread all over the world, including, among other countries: China, India, Tunisia, Burkina Faso, and Brazil.

In addition to the supply of turnkey lines, line adaptation projects will also be carried out in order to meet the new market standards, as well as advisory and know-how transfer services.

Taking into account the order portfolio for January, Mondragon Assembly Solar is expected to exceed 20 million euro in sales in 2017, continuing the growth dynamics of recent years.

Mondragon Assembly is proud to present its new MTS 2500 tabber and its MTS 5000 lay-up machine.

The new MTS 2500 is an evolutionary leap in the concept of Tabber Stringer machines. The innovative design of Mondragon Assembly allows a net production capacity of 2400 cells per hour in a single welding track, making it the fastest in the market.

When designing this new tabber, the experienced engineering team of Mondragon Assembly took into account new market trends.  Therefore, this tabber allows the interconnection of cells up of up to 8 BB as well as the welding of half cells.

In addition to its production capacity, it is also notable for its size, as it only requires 7.5 m2. It thus allows the installation of high-production lines in smaller areas.

With a rupture rate lower than 0.2%, this machine does not require major adjustments or maintenance. Its user-friendly interface allows the operator to interact with it easily.

MTS 5000 lay-up machine

The new MTS 5000 lay-up machine incorporates two MTS 2500 tabber stringer units, achieving a production capacity of 4800 cells per hour, which means an annual capacity of 180 Mw.
