AMETEK Surface Vision’s surface inspection systems overcome the challenges of the battery production process to deliver reliable, highly sensitive defect inspection, with streaming high-definition video that allows re-inspection without re-coiling.

Battery technology is expanding rapidly. Since problems and defects cannot be completely ruled out during production, surface inspection technology is essential to check the material, improve the quality and reduce customer claims. 

Our turnkey systems deliver accurate real-time surface inspection and monitoring for applications including lithium-ion battery cell electrodes, separators, solid-state batteries, and fuel cell components.

Based around the SmartView® platform, AMETEK Surface Vision’s customizable, modular inspection system suits individual applications, with advanced LED illumination, highly sensitive line scan cameras, data capture computers and associated process control equipment, with powerful algorithms for detection and classification.


With the growing global movement towards renewable energy, and the need to find alternative power sources to fossil fuels, electric-powered vehicles are increasingly in demand.This, in turn, has led to a rapidly rising demand for high-quality electric battery cells to power these vehicles. To ensure a high-grade battery, defect-free separators and high-quality electrodes are required.
