E-mobility is an industry that is growing at an incredible rate, with advances in technology and an ever incresing demand for greener more efficent forms of transport it is anticipated that this is a trend that is going to continue for some time.
Fiber lasers are a crucial tool used in the manufacturing process as they can produce high speed, consistent results without the need for lengthy service intervals.
Fiber lasers are used to manufacture many key components found in the myriad of electric vehicles that make up the e-mobility market; from battery and electric motor manufacturing through to user interfaces, component identification and much more! For an insight into how fiber lasers can help shape the e-mobility industry read our selection of articles below.
E-mobility is a major trend in automotive and many other industries. Lasers are already very actively involved in vehicle production and this trend will continue with the switch from Internal combustion engine (ICE) models to electric vehicles. One... read more >
E-mobility will continue to rise in terms of adoption, causing a number of challenges to electric vehicle manufacturers in many areas of operation. There is not only the scale of production required, but there are also the precision manufacturing... read more >
Differentials are an important component, which every electric car will need. Automotive manufacturers are ramping up their capability and one important requirement is the mass production of differentials for the burgeoning electric vehicles market.... read more >
Fiber lasers are already playing an important role in the breakthrough of e-mobility and will continue to do so into the future. Fiber lasers are in demand for their precision, speed, ease and diversity of use – amongst other qualities.... read more >
SPI Lasers definition for e-mobility
e-mobility is an abbreviation of electro mobility and is a general term used to describe the principles and concepts of utilising electric powered technologies (e.g. drivetrains). E-mobility moves away from... read more >
From many perspectives, e-mobility is an excellent initiative for the automotive industry, but none perhaps more so than for environmental reasons. The industry has long been unpopular with the general public for its fossil fuel usage and there has... read more >
Ask anybody the question: “What are the benefits of e-mobility?” and it’s likely that the majority of people would mention environmental benefits and it’s happening for green-friendly reasons. Whilst, this is certainly true, there are many... read more >
The automotive industry is facing rapid change with the switch from internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles to electric vehicles (in the form of all-electric, hybrid and hydrogen fuel cell models). This rapid change is bringing unique challenges... read more >
The world is embracing a fundamental shift from internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles to electric vehicles of all shapes and sizes. Although electric vehicle technology has existed for some time, it will need to evolve to embrace the mass... read more >
Following an increase in oil prices in 2008 and pressures on governments for a “greener planet”, significant investment has been applied in recent years to move to electronic vehicles. The electric car market is already surging in popularity.... read more >
Over the last 100 years we have all become used to an internal combustion engine (ICE) dominated world. Just as internal combustion engine vehicles need a network of filling sessions so will electric vehicles need a network of charging points. This... read more >
Copper hairpin wires are typically lacquered or coated with an organic layer to give them electrical isolation. This layer needs to be removed from the welding zone prior to joining – this can be done by one of our ns pulsed fiber lasers. These... read more >
E-mobility is continually in the headlines and represents one of the great predicted mega trends for the next decade. The rationale is clear - the world needs to break its dependency on fossil fuels and electric vehicles offer the obvious solution.... read more >
The boom in e-mobility is generating an increased demand for electric motors across the world. These motors are manufactured with solid copper hairpins in the stator which generate a magnetic field, which in turn creates the motion of the motor.... read more >
The manufacture of Lithium-ion batteries is a highly technical process in which cathodes and anodes are manufactured from thin metallic foils that are coated with active materials. Cathode materials are typically thin aluminum foil in the... read more >
Lithium ion batteries can be found everywhere from phones and laptops to electric cars. The automotive industry is set to increase it’s demand for these batteries drastically in years to come. This means the manufacturing process will need to... read more >
These foils are typically made of aluminium or copper with coated are bare areas on both sides. This can be challenging to process as edge quality must be consistent across all areas of the workpiece. Fiber lasers are ideal to use to cut foils,... read more >
The first battery was invented many, many years ago, finding its history dating back to 1800, when Italian physicist Alessandro Volta created the first modern day battery. Since that period the battery saw slow growth, simply because there wasn’t... read more >
We all know how important it is to be eco-friendly, which is why more of us are taking action and opting for electric vehicles. This is a paradigm shift away from fossil-fuelled cars, an initiative, which is often called e-mobility. These vehicles... read more >
