High tech in quality control - CT scan

We invest an extraordinary amount of effort in the quality control of our batteries. This starts with the sophisticated construction of our batteries, followed by a high level material sourcing process and ends in state-of-the-art battery production. In some cases, samples are checked by means of a CT (computer tomography) scan, which renders the interior completely visible. Take a look at our video!
