Laser Welding for E-Mobility: Challenges and Possibilities


Laser welding is a common joining method that has been used for years in combustion engine car manufacturing. Electric vehicles introduce a new set of welding challenges, starting from the materials needed to weld, such as copper and aluminum. In addition, the weld requirements are challenging, with higher requirements for mechanical strength, electrical conductivity, sealing, and others.

The dynamic beam laser (DBL) is a new laser technology that enables supreme control on the thermal gradient, melt pool dynamics, and microstructure. This 60-minute Webinar will look at the ways the DBL enables manufacturers to replace joining methods such as brazing with laser welding to improve efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.

Topics include:

  • Features of the DBL
  • Case studies for welding of battery cooling plates and Al die-cast components.

A Q&A session will follow the technical presentation.
