Honeywell is chosen by Ultium Cells to ensure the quality of the EV batteries produced in LordstownHoneywell announced that Ultium Cells LLC, a joint venture between LG Energy Solution and General Motors (GM), will use Honeywell's Quality Control System (QCS) to ensure the quality and integrity of the lithium-ion batteries produced at its new manufacturing plant in Lordstown, Ohio. Due to be completed in 2022, the 2.8 million square-foot factory will produce lithium-ion battery cells for GM electric vehicles ranging from Cadillac sedans to Hummers and will be one of the largest electric vehicle battery plants in the United States.

Honeywell's QCS will deploy compact, high-precision scanners and basis weight sensors to serve as the quality control platform for four of the Lordstown plant's production lines. Honeywell's system will help Ultium Cells meet key quality requirements by measuring electrode coat weight, a key parameter in the production of battery cells. In addition, Honeywell's modular platform and proven industry expertise will help Ultium Cells ensure long-term success by adapting new measurement and control technology as battery cell production requirements evolve.

Ultium Cells was founded as part of GM's long-term strategy to produce a complete range of zero-emissions, all-electric cars and trucks by 2035. Battery cells represent a significant step away from fossil fuels and offer the potential to revolutionize passenger transportation in the form of electric and autonomous vehicles. The batteries produced at the Lordstown plant will be high performance, capable of a range of 400 miles with fast charging and long operational life, and they will require strict quality controls in the production process.
