LG Energy Solution adopts Siemens factory processes
Ultium Cells is a joint venture between LG Energy Solution and General Motors that makes batteries for electric vehicles in the United States.
After testing Siemens’ smart factory systems – which utilize internet-of things and automation technology to increase efficiency – at its Ultium Cells Tennessee factory, LG Energy Solution plans to also use them at other factories.
“Making the manufacturing process smart is a core capacity that needs to be secured in order to achieve quality improvement of the batteries and maximization of efficiency in a supply chain,” Kwon Young-soo, CEO of LG Energy Solution said.
“Through the partnership with Siemens, which is a leading player in the smart factory business, we are going to provide top-notch service to our customers.”
