3D scanning and reverse-engineering of used batteries

What we did?

  • 3D Scan
  • CAD Design & Reverse Engineering

We used 3D scans to reverse-engineer used li-ion batteries which will be disassembled by Circu Li-ion through a fully automated machine system.

Our high-end 3D scanner and program suite allows us to easily recreate any physical object. We can extract specific features and dimensions, like the spacing and sizes of holes for example, or reconstruct the entire part from the ground up.

Additionally, 3D scanning is faster and provides higher measurement accuracy for most reverse-engineering tasks compared to manual measurements.

In this case, the recreation focused on outer surfaces and screw positions of the battery shell:
