Tesla Gigafactory ✨

He Said, She Said.  What’s Going On With Tesla Model 3 Battery Production? 

January 26th, 2018 by Steve Hanley


Tesla has reacted angrily to a report by CNBC claiming that delays in getting Model 3 production up to speed are the result of shoddy practices at the Gigafactory in Nevada. CNBC reports several employees at that facility have told it the battery packs destined for new Model 3 electric cars are being built by hand by inexperienced workers, leading to delays and waste. Those employees suggest the battery packs that are being made contain defects that could potentially lead to hazardous conditions in the cars.

Great comment!

To get this story straight.

Battery cells are produced by Panasonic in GF1.

Battery packs are produced by Tesla in GF1.

Battery pack packing machine did malfunction.

The supplier of the automated battery assembly line "dropped the ball".

This was discovered in June or July.

Panasonic did reassign a few dozen employees to help Tesla fill battery packs by hand, about 50 packs per day.

The first action of Tesla was to rewrite the code for these machines.
Then they had to debug and configure / tune the machines.
These machines with rewritten code came on-line again in mid-December.
The packing machines started to function at low speed, 100-200 packs per day.
Manual filling of battery packs was not needed anymore.

Between Christmas and New year packing machines started to reach 200 per day more often. This is knowledge from Electrek comment sections and Tesla comments, translated in concrete numbers.

This was the big bottleneck that pushed the 5000/week production goal back by three months, twice!

This battery assembly line is probably less than 0.1% of the whole production line, but blocking the other 99.9% to deliver the cars at the speed the other 99.9% is capable of.

You can fault Tesla for not discovering this problem sooner.
But saying Tesla can't produce at volume for this one problem is idiotic.

This CNBC report is about a problem that is solved, it is completely irrelevant.

Aglebert COMMENT: I say this a Koch Brothers 🦀 funded mens rea move (i.e. use the media to tank the stock price with a hit piece full of half truths) to destroy the most successful manufacturer of socially responsible automobiles in history.

The Koch roachs are not limited to our fossil fuel babying government.
