Custom-made battery manufacturing equipment
Nobody like BTS understands the complexity of the lead-acid battery industry. For the last 30 years, we have supported battery makers in more than 20 countries, including some of the largest players in the field, but also small, regional operations and newcomers. As a result, we know how important it is to take the time to address each customer's needs on an individual, case-by-case basis.

Most battery manufacturers pride themselves in their own, in-house developed designs and processes – they are, after all, what gives them their competitive advantage. As a manufacturing equipment supplier, we do not try to teach our customers how to make batteries. On the contrary, we see it as our job to find the most efficient and reliable way to integrate and automate their processes based on the results they want to achieve. BTS lead-acid battery machines are not a "one size fits all" standard – they are bespoke solutions, tailored to each customer's needs and products.

Such high degree of customization has allowed us to refine processes like inter-cell welding and heat-sealing, with innovative designs that are fine-tuned for efficiency and performance. We know from experience that customers don't look back after trying our equipment. In fact, in many cases, they will ask us to retrofit their previous machines from other suppliers to make them behave more like ours.

This is also why, after getting used to our quality and service, customers have, time after time, pushed us to apply our expertise to new areas. From our early days as an assembly-focused supplier, we have become one of the few companies that can cover most parts of the battery manufacturing process, including plate making, COS and acid filling, always bringing our distinctive philosophy along the way.

For many of the world's leading battery makers, BTS is the to-go partner when it comes to automating non-standard tasks in order to reduce manpower and improve output quality. Don't ask our competitors for things like a fully auto. COS mold release agent applicator or a battery brushing and high-rate discharge test machine – to name just two of the most recent examples of heavily customized, fit-fur-purpose machines especially developed by BTS with a particular customer in mind.

So, next time you are looking for something no one else can make – ask our sales department, and the BTS engineering team will get down to work on it right away.
