Current electric vehicle battery recycling processes often begin with the manual dismantling of the battery packs. In consideration of occupational safety and in view of the increasing sales of electric vehicles, an automated dismantling of batteries has to be investigated. Therefore, different manufacturers’ battery pack designs are examined first and especially the common joining elements are determined and characterized. The results show a high diversity between the individual systems, which influences the potential for automation. Based on these investigations, a possible layout of an automated dismantling cell is developed.
