Roll-to-roll automation
Renewable Energy & Energy Storage Manufacturing Solutions

At Northfield Automation Systems (NAS), we specialize in providing solutions for complex, high-volume manufacturing automation challenges, including renewable energy and energy storage innovations that align with industry needs.

Increasing Demand

With the Biden Administration’s target to make half of all new vehicles sold in 2030 zero-emission, including battery electric, plug-in hybrid electric, or fuel cell electric vehicles, manufacturers of engines and batteries may be looking for the right energy storage solution. NAS has experience designing and producing manufacturing equipment for the production of battery and energy storage solutions. As the United States advances smart fuel efficiency, emissions standards, and federal funding programs for electric vehicle infrastructure, NAS stands ready to create energy storage manufacturing solutions and equipment.

Energy Storage Solutions & Applications

NAS partners with leaders to manufacture and apply renewable energy and energy storage solutions for a variety of industries.

  • Transportation, electrical vehicle
  • Solar and renewable energy
  • Commercial energy generation and storage
  • Residential energy generation and storage
  • Heavy equipment

Flexible Photovoltaics

Due to the precision required for flexible photovoltaic substrates, roll-to-roll manufacturing provides you with the controlled processing you need. The manufacturing of flexible photovoltaics, such as solar cells, can be completed using roll-to-roll printing and coating processes that are already widely used.

Fuel Cell Engines for Electric Vehicles

The team at NAS has expertise in developing full-scale production lines that give manufacturers the capability to achieve commercial success. We’ve developed automated solutions built for the handling of metal mesh and foam materials for applications from coating to curing and calendaring. Automated production processes of fuel cell stacks and systems help achieve the tight tolerances necessary for quality assurance.

Fuel Cell and Energy Storage

Whether it is one material or a composite of multiple materials that are combined to make your fuel cell or energy storage product, a roll-to-roll solution is the perfect fit. Our team has experience developing pilot to full-scale manufacturing lines for the production of battery technology featuring roll-to-roll technology capable of achieving the necessary tolerances needed for quality assurance.

Lithium Ion Battery Technology for Electronic Devices

Battery technology continues to improve and move toward lithium-ion. Automated web handling is essential to increasing efficiency and achieving the capability to manufacture at scale.
