Creating the future today
TRUMPF & SPI Lasers provide a wide range of manufacturing and laser systems to the automotive industry in all areas of e-mobility, paving the way for a more environmentally friendly future.
TRUMPF & SPI Lasers in battery manufacturing
The TRUMPF Group is leading in the development of technologies suited to industrial purposes for the laser welding, cutting and cleaning of a wide range of battery system components used in electric vehicle manufacture. Lasers are becoming the manufacturing route of choice for battery cells, modules and packs.
TRUMPF laser machines offer tailored solutions giving high levels of productivity, yielding low part costs for volume manufacturing.
The battery pack brings together all these elements and is welded to form a compact block. Using TRUMPF lasers, customers can weld the components and the housing of the pack in a sealed and highly precise way. The quality of the weld seams can be constantly monitored by intelligent process sensor systems.
Battery assemblies pose significant welding challenges particularly in the joining of dissimilar materials such as copper and aluminum. Solutions based on TRUMPF & SPI Lasers for welding can cap and bus bar assemblies can be achieved via their innovative welding technologies such as oscillation welding, BrightLine Weld and ns welding. It is important to create high-tensile weld seams with as little energy input as possible to produce high quality, reliable joints.
TRUMPF’s latest technology highlight is the new TruDisk 1020. Using a green wavelength, copper and other highly reflective materials can be welded not just efficiently, but also with high quality and great productivity, regardless of the material surface quality. TRUMPF TruDisk lasers with the option BrightLine Weld enable low spatter laser welding at increased feed ratesand highest weld seam quality.While SPI offers its 2kW single mode fiber laser for oscillation welding and a 250W ns pulsed fiber laser for joining a range of dissimilar materials.
Whatever your manufacturing challenges are the TRUMPF Group can offer an optimised solution based on a choice of laser technologies.
