Reading time ( words)

Nordson DAGE, a division of the Nordson Corporation is delighted to announce its success in joining a group of leading UK companies, including Williams Manufacturing Group and Unipart, to advance the UK’s low-carbon automotive capabilities. As part of the UK government’s Industrial Strategy, five projects totaling £33M were awarded through the advanced propulsion centre (APC).

As part of the “H1perChain” consortium, Nordson DAGE will now embark on a three-year project to scale up the UK’s battery pack manufacturing capabilities. The project will aim to reduce battery pack costs while making a step change in manufacturing volumes. Key to achieving this task is developing new test and inspection processes to ensure best-in-class reliability on each battery pack.

Nordson will deploy its Bond Test, X-ray and automated optical inspection products into the project, while collaborating closely with the R&D centers of the other consortium members. The Nordson DAGE Test and Inspection Center of Excellence, based in Aylesbury UK, will play a pivotal role throughout the project. There is significant focus on Industry 4.0 digitalization which plays to a core research focus for Nordson, who already have a full portfolio of test and inspection equipment in the semiconductor industry.

Phil Vere, Vice President of Nordson Test and Inspection, said: “Nordson is excited to be the lead test and inspection partner for the H1perChain project. Working within the consortium will give us the opportunity to develop new technologies and products to address the growing EV market.”
